You might think it crazy or unwise, but I usually don't use watermarks in my pictures. Why not you might ask? Well, B&H have written a good blog about the pros and cons of the use of watermarks.
Sometimes it is actually quite useful to have a watermark in your picture and then it's good to know how to do it:
1. Open a new document:
2. Design your logo (and crop it):
3. Save as Brush Preset: Edit > Define Brush Preset and give it a name.
Voila! You've now created your very own watermark! It's ready to be used in any of your images in Photoshop:
- Open and edit your picture
- Choose a brush (B) and choose the brush you created (in my case its brush 2212)
- Add the brush to the pictures. You can change and color like a normal Brush. Best is to add the watermark on a new layer. Its easier to move it around.
If your not satiesfied with the logo, it's real easy to remove the brush. Just hit the B to open the brush. Pick the brush and click on it with the CTRL tool. Then remove it.
