There are different ways to make a watermark...
for your creations.. In this tutorial I will show you a few ways to
The first one.. create a new image 300 x 200 white
bkg.. Type your name, or what ever you want on your watermark.. if
you want a small heart, butterfly or any kind of design.. put that
on there too.. do all this in BLACK as the sample below.
Crop then go to Effects/Texture Effects/ Emboss
Looks ugly huh..:-) You can save it as a .jpg now
if you want to use it in the future. Now copy and paste the new
watermark.. onto your working creation. It will look like below.. On
your layer palette.. depending on what color your bkg. is.. or how
you want it to look.. you set your 'blend mode' on Soft light,
Hard light, or Overlay. There is a sample below for each.
They're a tiny bit of difference in each one of them.
Soft Light, this is my favorite..
Hard Light, bring down the Opacity on this one.
Overlay, notice the opacity is on 30%
The trick is for someone when looking at your
creation/Sig Tag/stationery etc.. to NOT see your watermark
FIRST THING.. its not suppose to stand out that much.. seen but NOT
seen if you know what I mean.. Nothing looks more tacky than a huge
'BIG THUMB' watermark.. yuck!!!..
This is an easy one to do.. if you know how to
make a brush...if not check out my tutorial on brushes.
Next time you need your watermark.. just find it
on your brush drop down box previews and 'stamp' it on to your
creation... You usually bring down the size.. and put it on its own
layer so you can bring the opacity down...you want to just BARELY
see it on your creation...
Well hope this helped you to create your own
watermark...till next time
