No idea really how to use photoshop but I thought I would just mess around trying a few things.
A little too much IMO.
I dont think so, you can still appreciate the photo, yet it was be ugly to print that
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
What makes it too much? Is it to dark?
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 .
Nice shot of the jet there BTW. DeadEye
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.
Google UMARK and check out there watermarking software it is topnotch for $20 and allows logos & resizing as well........
If you guys don't mind me asking how do you add a watermark on corel paint shop i can do it on cs3 but can't seem to find it on corel.
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.
Awesome deadeye, i just tried it out and you were absolutely on point. Thanks.
