What do I change in this Python script to stop the resizing of an image when adding a watermark

I have this script which is successfully applying a watermark to an image, resizing the watermark and setting the image “quality”.
I find that it’s actually reducing the quality and resizing it to be smaller than I want.

This is a telegram bot that I’m using, I send the image to the bot, the bot is adding the watermark and then resizing. I don’t want the resizing part at all. I want the original size + the watermark.

QUESTION: How do i change this so it doesn’t resize my original image that the watermark is added to?


  1. I sent image to my bot which activates the script
  2. The script adds a watermark and resizes the image
  3. The script sends the resized image back to me with the watermark included
