Photographer Andie Smith joins us again with a Quick Tip on keeping your work safe online
If it is on the internet, it’s free. WRONG! But this is how some people think… one of the ways I protect my work from free-loaders is watermarking my images before putting it on sites like Facebook, and Flickr.
Here’s how I do it;
First I create a new canvas 500px x 900px at 72dpi should do it.
I use my Wacom Tablet to sign my name. Of course you could add your logo instead, or as well as, and lower the opacity to 50%
I like to add my web address on top of the signature.
I merge layers (Ctrl / Cmd E) , then holding Ctrl/Cmd I click the layer to get the “marching ants” around the type and signature.
In the Menu I choose Edit > Define Brush Preset and name and save the new brush.
I Now have a brush for my watermark that I can easily add to all my images before I upload them to the internet.
