Watermark is very salient when it comes to copyrighting an image. No matter whether you design an image or capture a photograph, you can use a watermark to claim ownership of the image. If certain images contain watermarks, no one can deploy them legally somewhere else.
But how to add watermarks to images? This is exactly what you would learn in this tutorial. We would walk you through 2 different methods of adding a watermark to an image. And the good thing is that both these methods you will find easy-peasy.
So, let’s dive in….
At first, we will show you how to add a watermark in Photoshop using a logo image. Let’s check it out-
First up, open an image in Photoshop in which you want to add watermark.
Now, drag and drop the logo that you have on the image that you opened. You can also open the image from the menu bar.
If you find the logo color mismatching, you can tweak the color using the “Color Overlay” option. All you have to do is double-click the logo layer in the Layer panel. After that, tick the “Color Overlay” option. Also, don’t forget to unlock the background layer.
Once you are done with applying the color overlay, it’s time to adjust the opacity to the right percentage using the slider on the window. Then, pick your desired color from the color palette and hit the “OK” button.
Now, it’s time to position as well as resize the logo as per your needs. Use Move tool for positioning the logo and Transform tool for resizing the logo. You can use V and Ctrl+T for former and latter actions as shortcuts.
Next, double-click the logo layer again and select the Blending Options. This time, adjust the opacity from the Blending Options. Once you are satisfied with the transparency of the logo, hit the “Ok” button.
With that, the watermark will show up on the image as positioned before. And that’s the final output!
Now, we will take a look how to add a watermark using text. Let’s get started…
Go ahead and open the same image that you used for the 1st method. However, you can select any other image too. Now, type a logo text on the image using the Type tool. Press T to type on the image.
If the logo text appears tiny and small, resize it using the Transform tool. You can scale up the text holding the Shift key.
Now, apply the color overlay, adjust the opacity to the right percentage using the slider on the window. Then, choose your preferred color from the color palette and hit the “OK” button. You can also rotate the logo text to a particular angle using the Transform tool.
After that, double-click the logo layer and select Blending Options. Here, adjust the opacity from the Blending Options. Once you are pleased with the opacity of the logo, hit the “Ok” button.
And here is the final output of the text watermark. The text watermark is visible on the image.
