Easy Peasy Watermarks by onnawufei Easy Peasy Watermarks by onnawufei
Image theft sucks, there's no two ways about it. There are complicated ways out there to do watermarks but this is just a super simple one. Hopefully it helps some folks.

:heart:

[Update!] If you want to use but your font doesn't support it, there is a way around that. Make your watermark in the font you want, then make another text layer and pick a font that does support the symbol. Then position the two the way you want them, and merge them together before you make them into a brush. I quite often do this even when the font does support the symbol so that I can place it exactly where I want.

Yeah. And super easy-peasy. I loaded some photography up on to tumblr and then a few people "rebloged" it and it didn't make me feel comfortable. But when I deleted the post their 'reblogs' didn't go away.

So ya... water markings from now on for me.

This really deserves a lot of attention. It's very simple and easy to follow. Very well done. :)

If you happen to notice anyone saying they don't have/can't get Photoshop, you might want to refer them to The GIMP. It's an open source, free image editing software that's a good alternative for people who can't get Photoshop. I've used it for years (though I still like Adobe software better, and am now happily working with CS4), but it's certainly better than nothing. ^^

I'll have to remember that. Years ago I used GIMP at work but I keep forgetting about it.

This is awesome! I'll definitely use this. In the past if I wanted watermarks I used Picasa from google, but you do have to type it everytime. I'm pretty sure something could be figured out with GIMP, but I don't really know.

I'd be waaaaaaaay too lazy for that. :B

The sad thing is, it took me getting large amounts of my pictures stolen three times before I started to consistently watermark my stuff.

I did it when I remembered too, but it was annoying. =P
I hope my stuff doesn't get stolen. :noes:

if the watermark is saved as a brush, as exampled here, is it possible to change the color of it?
Reply
:icononnawufei:
onnawufei Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2010
Yup. It'll be in whatever color you chose. Usually do mine in white, but if the picture is white I'll do it in black.

:icononnawufei:
onnawufei Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2010
I have, and it's annoying!

Though honestly, I don't even care about straight up reposting anymore, partially because of my watermark. If they're just posting the picture somewhere to show a picture they like then hell, my website is right on the image so it's free advertising! Not that I update my website all that much, but it has a link to my dA on the main page. :XD:

The only time it's ever happened to me was this pic. [link] Someone posted on the stolen pic, HERE ON DEV, "Oh yea, They aren't Rex and Robert. that's my boyfriend (name) and his best friend (name)."

She was telling me, who took the picture, who the people were in it. ONLY because the pic was on her boyfriend's myspace page, claiming it was him and his friend.

I might have to watermark that pic, seeing as it's so popular... Thanks for the tutorial! :D

Even though I just told them it did happen.
