Hi everyone, and welcome to another episode of Tubetorial. Today I want to show you a quick and easy way to add a watermark to your photos in Photoshop.
A big concern of a lot of people these days is getting their photos stolen off their blogs or websites. Adding a watermark this way reduces the chances of that- and the watermark we’ll be adding is subtle enough so that it doesn’t detract from the beauty of the photo.
For this tutorial, I’ll be using a photo of an Apple Pie that I baked- here is the original photo- and here is the photo with the watermark added.
So, let me open the photo up in Photoshop.
The first thing I want to do is add a layer. This is where I’ll be putting the watermark, so I’ll go ahead and label it “Watermark”. And now, I’ll select the shape tool… let me select the rounded rectangle tool, just so it’s softer around the edges. I’m choosing a light yellowish color, but you can of course select whatever color you want.
Now, I want to lower the opacity of this layer, so that the original photo still shows through.
And finally, I’ll put my text in.
… and there you have it. I’ve watermarked my photo in Photoshop, and it was quick and easy.
