Well, I don’t need to explore my title more as it will easily convince about what I am going to write on. But, before we start let me acquaint you with the term “Watermark”.
Watermark is a simple way of identifying images and securing them from piracy and unauthorized use online. The watermark is a visible embedded overlay on a digital photo including text or a logo, or a copyright notice. The purpose of a watermark is to identify the work and decrease its unauthorized use. But remember, a watermark can also be removed with lots of time and patients but you don’t need to worry about it. You can deal with it. Here is the tutorial showing how to add watermark into your image using Photoshop. Let us commence with the tutorial for the same.
With the hope that this article will turn out to be of some real use to you all.
Step 1: Alright, First of all you need to choose an image on which you want your ‘Watermark’. You can either Drag an image into Photoshop or you can go to File >Open and Open your image.
Step 2: Open the Image wherever you’ve stored it.
Step 3: Alright, Now you have opened your image in Photoshop. Now you need to write the watermark on it. So go to Horizontal Type Tool and long press the left click. It will show you four options. Choose Horizontal Type Tool to write Horizontally and Vertical Type Tool to write Vertically. Make sure you have selected White color in your Foreground Color.
Step 4: Now write whatever watermark you want on your image.
Step 5: After you have written your text you need to re-size or re-position it. So go to Move tool or press ‘V’.
Step 6: Now to re-size your text you can select the text, double clicking on ‘T’ (Text) layer and changing the text point (pt) values. Or you can select Edit >Free Transform (Ctrl+T). It will show you 8 points so you can transform or re-size as you want.
Step 7: We are done with the text now. So to decrease the visibility of the text and transform it into the watermark, we need to reduce the opacity. Which you can do by selecting the text layer and changing Opacity to 30 or you can play with it till you don’t get the best watermark for your image. And you are done with simple Watermarking.
Alright, Suppose If your image is too precious and you don’t believe in simple Watermark… HERE WE GO! Simple and Effective!
Step 8: Go to Shape Tool and select Line Tool. Now with pressing Shift key on Windows and as well as on Mac, draw line on your image that covers the whole image. You can draw as much lines you want but, don’t draw too much or very few.
Step 9: Now you may see many layers of lines are created so you need to select them all. After Right clicking on selected layers, you will see the last third option ‘Merge Layers’. So just click on it and merge them all that you won’t be confused and it will be easy to move. Now this is done with Advanced watermarking but… We can also go a little bit further too!
Step 10: Right click on Line layer which we’ve just made and select Duplicate Layer option (Ctrl +J). It will make the copy of the same line layer.
Step 11: Now select the line layer which we’ve just created and press (Ctrl +T) or go to Edit >Free Transform. Now Press Right Click on line on the image and you will see ‘Flip Horizontal’ option at second last. Click on it and it will make square pattern on your image.
Now your image will look like this!!
