Creating and Adding a Watermark

When you post a photograph online, it’s reassuring to see your images stamped with your own logo or watermark.

It says to everyone who looks at your photo that you took it, it’s free advertising for you and it may also act as a deterrent to someone nicking your masterpiece and calling it theirs. Having said that, most watermarks can be removed or hidden or even cropped into oblivion using Photoshop. But don’t let that dissuade you.

This short tutorial will take us through the process of creating a very simple text-base watermark. Then I will show you how to incorporate it into Adobe Lightroom so that when you export your images, your watermark is attached.
