Remove watermark from existing assets

A watermark is an image that is placed over an asset so that the original file is not completely visible anymore. This is to protect copyrights and unreleased assets from being downloaded freely. Downloads of watermarked assets have to be approved by Admin Users before Light Users can download those assets. In this way assets are downloaded in a safe, controlled way. However, if a watermark is no longer needed, you can remove it from the asset so it can be downloaded without restrictions.
