Go to your PSP folders and in "All Lessons", "Baby Bees" make a new folder name: Water Mark
1. Open a new image 500 x
2. Set your foreground color to null and
your background color to the color that you want
your watermark to be - I have used #1c2b5a.
3. Select the text tool and make your text
options the same as mine below. Your font
and size can be what you choose it to be.
Make sure you set at Floating under "Create As" on the text options
Note: I used a larger font with mine for demonstration
4. Once you have you setting right Click
in the center of your image a box will pop up..
5. Type in your name or whatever you want your watermark
to say right after that. Choose what you
copy write carefully and ask yourself when your
finished is it work that I can claim or can I only
claim the design of it. In that case I
highly suggest not copywriting but just adding a
watermark with out the copy write symbol
6. After your text is done and you have
hit applied you will see marching ants around your
text like this:
Notice the Floating Selection that is because
we have floating chosen within our text settings. Floating will allow you to make changes just with
what is selected. DO NOT DESELECT.
7. Now let's add a little
definition to your watermark. Go to
Effects/3d effects/inner bevel and using my
settings below inner bevel it.
8. While still selected let's go add a
drop shadow to it. Go back to effects/3d
effects/Drop Shadow and using my settings below.
9. Now go to selections and select none. Notice the floating selection left and you now
have raster 1.
10. Over on your right hand side and
under layers double click on the Raster 1 and a
properties box will open up. Reduce the
opacity to your desired setting. I reduced
mine down to 63 percent.
11. Notice the look of it now.
12. When you happy with the look and feel
of it were going to turn your watermark into a
tube so you can use it over and over again without
having to make one each time.
13. Using your cropping tool block off
the area you want to use. Crop it so just
your name is showing like so: When you have
the desired size double click inside the crop box
and it will readjust.
14. Now go to File/export/picture tube
and this box will pop up. Just simply name it and
15. To use your newly made watermark go
to tube symbol on
the left hand side of your PSP . Go to the
top next to Presets and click the down arrow. A
box will come up like the one below. Find
your watermark click on it and it will now show
16. Now test it out, open up an image and
with your picture tube activated click anywhere on
the image and you should now have a watermark.
This tutorial only provides you with one way of
making a watermark. There are many out there
to chose from. U can add images to your
watermark as well using the same techniques above
and reducing the opacity as in step number 12. Just remember when your done with the image and
text to merge it all visible first before
