    No idea really how to use photoshop but I thought I would just mess around trying a few things.[​IMG]

    Agreed, I think it's excessive, but it really depends on what your use is. What exactly are you trying to protect your images from?

    well i'll take a stab in the dark and mention *copyright*. Overall it's a nice pic, If you were going to sell it or print it then you can do it without the watermark

    Most of us here on TPF are anti watermark as far as using it as a copyright protection. It only detracts from the image posted . A file downsized the post here is not print worthy anyway so why plaster a big watermark on it is the general idea. A smaller watermark that can be read and lead to you ( Free Plug) located were it wont detract from image is good idea. Try shrinking it and putting it to bottom left of image . Small and discrete but there for those who want to know who you are .

    Ok thanks for the info. Like I said this was my first attempt at a watermark/signature. I'll shrink them down and put them in a corner.

    Pretty much the same as cs3


    Make an invisible layer with text or logo or whatever and save it as PSP or png or tiff or any file that supports the invisible part. Then add it to image you want marked. Or just use the text tool.
