Watermarking Tutorial

Sooooo many people using watermarking to lessen the chance of someone stealing their image.


The Steps

1. Make a new document (Click "File" >> Click "New") Make it big enough to fit your sites name. It's ok if it's bigger than it cause you can crop it later. Mine is 100 pixels wide and 20 pixels in height. Make sure the background contents says "Transparent". Click OK. Mine looks like this.

2. Click on your text tool. Choose your PIXEL FONT. If you don't understand pixel fonts than {CLICK HERE}

3. Now click the crop tool.

4. Crop around the text, but leave a little bit of space around it. Zoom in if you need to. My background is white for this tutorial only. Yours should be transparent, not white.

5. Click "Edit" >> "Define Pattern".

6. Open whatever you want to watermark. I'm going to use a random picture for this tutorial.

7. Click "Layer" >> "Duplicate Layer" and click OK. Delete the background layer (not the duplicated layer)

8. Right click on the only layer you should have now and click "Blending Options." Then click "Pattern Overlay"

9. Make the pattern the text you saved as a pattern earlier. Make the Blend Mode overlay or soft light. Make the opacity whatever you think looks best with the Blend Mode you chose. Then you're done!!
