watermark how to's?

Jan 3, 2013 3:23 PM

If I already have a watermark image made up, how can I add it to a photo? Also, how can I make the background of my watermark image transparent?

    1. You need to prepare the watermark. If it has a solid background color, duplicate the background layer, shut off the visibility of the background layer by clicking on its eye icon. Make the background copy layer active, then use the magic wand tool to select the background, and hit delete on the keyboard. You should have the watermark surrounded by transparency.


    2. Open the photo file. Arrange the floating windows so that you can see the picture and the watermark side-by- side.

    With the move tool, drag the watermark (from step #1) over to the photo,  position it and resize with the corner handles of the bounding box.


    If this is not clear or you get stuck, feel free to repost.
