Why Do I Need A Watermark?

Images are reused on different websites all the time. A watermark will tell anyone who views the image where it originally came from.

How Do I Watermark My Photos

When we create images we use Photoshop. If you use any layered based image manipulation software (Free ones include GIMP or SumoPaint) you can use the same technique.

We place our transparent background .png logo on it’s own layer, position and scale, then lower the opacity so that it is just barely visible.

We also try to put the logo somewhere in the image which overlaps an object. This makes it more difficult to remove the watermark if someone wanted to steal it.
