We all know what is a watermark on images? But for those of us who are not aware of watermarks, it is basically any written or pictorial representation of one's onus on the pictures. The purpose of such watermarks is to recognize the work of individuals and prevent its unauthorized use. Making a watermark is one of the foremost things you must do before publishing any of your images on the web. As mentioned above watermarking can be done by using a logo or by written text.
An ideal watermark must show both copyright logo and name of the owner of an image. This will not only prevent piracy but also gives an opportunity for users to contact the original owner. Watermark placement is a tricky task. The watermark should not be placed in a way that it does not remove the original essence of the picture neither it should be placed in an area from where it can be easily removed by pirates.
As we all know that Photoshop is one of the prime tools for editing digital photos. This method will teach you how to watermark a single image with Photoshop. After opening an image is select the type tool dialogue box and type your watermark text or logo. After that click the color switch and you can set the color to your desired density. Click on OK to exit the dialogue box. You can now resize and position your text wherever you want.
But editing hundreds of photos with Photoshop will take a lot of time and hence many batch watermarking software are available for easing the process. One such software is Batch Picture Protector that will not only protect pictures from piracy but also eases the process so that users can easily watermark their works.
