Hey everyone and welcome to another video tutorial from Robert’s Productions. Today I’m going to show you how to do a watermark in your image just like you see here in this photo. We got this little copy right symbol and then your name, okay. We’re going to try to be creating this but it might look a little better than that. So the first thing we’re going to do is, we’re going to actually open up our random image. This is from deviantart.com and as you can see they’ve already try add there—they we’re already add of their copyright symbol down here and the title of it up here. Instead of doing this, I mean it’s okay not to leave it on there. We could have a copyright symbol embedded within the photo.
So the first thing that we want to do, so we want to go over here to the text tool, hold down on it and select the horizontal type mask tool. Shortcut key is T. We’re going to select a pretty big size which is that size is actually pretty good already and that font is good as well. Whoa! Maybe not, okay let’s bring down that size. A little bit more—what’s up with the—okay. I’m going to type in copyright and if you hold down the Control key, it allows you to drag this over. Copyright, then click out of it. You could select the arrow tool and you see we have a mask around where the text should be. What we’re going to do next is, we’re going to hit Control-J and what that does is it brings our text into a new layer all by itself. So if I unviewed this background there we have it, copyright.
Now what we’re going to do for this layer is we’re going to select the Blending Options and we’re going to select Bevel and Emboss. We can bring the depth up a little bit and that’s pretty much all there is, the copyright symbol there we can’t resize it because we made it as a mask but you can move it around since on that new layer. It should just stay right we’re you put it because you see it has a blue, matches with it. That’s one way to do it.
Another way we could do this is I’m going to un-view this layer and we’re going to click back on our background. I’m going to select the horizontal type mask tool once again and I’m going to click in the center here and I’m going to also type copyright, a little bit bigger font but that’s okay, you know as big as you want. Hit Control-J and once again that brings us into another layer just what the text itself and we could also select these blending options but instead of Bevel and Emboss, we can do a little bit of inner shadow and this kind of engraves it into the image. And that we could select you know many different types of settings here such as the choke and the size, not too much, distance, that kind of embeds it into the image a little bit and it’s a little bit more heading if you don’t want to like lose the quality of the image. So you step forward.
Okay and so I’ve taught you two ways. Here is the first way, Bevel and Emboss, it’s pretty cool and the second way more of a engraved type of copyright watermark, what you can call it, it’s a watermark and this is more like if you don’t really want to lose the quality of your image, you could place this like in the top corner down here and they didn’t want even touch her photo, so they just put in this black bars copyright title.
