    Add watermark or Logo to 300 Images automatically.


      I am trying to find a way to include our logo as a watermark at the top-left of around 300 high quality images.

      Is there any plugin or a way to do this with photoshop ?


      Right now, I am doing them one by one , see (http://glorio.com.au) for example of what I am trying to do.

          First of all Create a watermark

          1. Create a New Document

          Open Photoshop and create a new document. Make it whatever size you like. I personally prefer something at least 600 x 600 pixels in size. Make sure that you select ‘Transparent’ in ‘Background Contents’

          2. Create Your Watermark Text

          This is pretty straightforward. Use the Type tool to create your watermark text. Make it as large as you want your final watermark to be.

          3. Turn Your Text into a Brush

          There are many different ways of creating a watermark. One of these is to turn your text into a brush. To do this, first crop the image to the size of your text:

          Now turn the image into a brush.


          Go to Edit -> Define Brush Preset. In the dialog box that pops up, give a unique name to your watermark brush and hit ok.

          Your image is now a brush that you can use with the brush tool to ‘paint’ your watermark.


          Select the ‘Brush’ tool ( brushtool) and from the brush presets menu, scroll down and select the preset you just created.


          You’ll now see your brush cursor change to your watermark image.

          Before you can create the watermark, you’ll have to change the brush color. It’s best to use either black or white, though I personally prefer white.

          All you have to do now is click the mouse once where you want the watermark to be


          For Multiple Images

          Open one of the Image (before that create Two folder one is for to keep your images and one folder should be empty)

          1. Go to Window -> Actions

          2. In the window that pops up, click on the folder icon to create a new folder that will hold all our watermark actions.


          3. Give the folder any name you want.


          4. Now click the ‘New Action’ button located right next to the folder icon.


          5. Give the action any name you want.


          https://blog.udemy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/automatingwatermark5.jpgOnce you hit ‘Record’, the macro will start recording. You should see a red button in the actions window.

          6. Now you can place your watermark that you have created before. (Create a watermark using either the brush or the pattern method as described above). Once done, hit the ‘Stop’ button in the actions window.


          The actions window should now show a list of actions you performed to create the watermark, as can be seen in the screenshot above.

          7. Go to File -> Automate -> Batch to add the watermark to a whole folder of images. (Souce: Folder and click on choose the images folder and Destination: folder and click on choose the empty folder)



          Good luck!!
