Hey, what’s up YouTube. This is your PC Help with the tutorial on how to make a watermark for your videos.
As you can see in the bottom right hand corner of my screen or your screen, pretty much that’s my watermark. And today, I’m going to show you how to make one.
First of all, you have to have Adobe Photoshop. You can download the trial at adobe.com. You want to go up here to file and new, and you want to go to custom, the preset. You want to go to custom. You can name it whatever you want. I’ll name it ‘watermark’. You want to come down here, make the width 100, make sure it’s pixels, and then the height 100 pixels, the resolution 72 pixels/inch. You want to make sure the color mode is RGB color with 16 bit. You want to make sure the background content is transparent. Now, you want to hit OK and you’ll come up with this.
Now, click ‘more info’ on the description and go to the website, and it will bring you this up to this template. You want to right click the template, copy image, and then you want to go to edit and paste. And then, it will bring you with this.
Now, what you want to do is you want to go to your magic wand tool, which is this. You want to right click and it’s not already, click magic wand tool. And then, you want to click the white background with the magic wand tool and go to your keyboard and hit Delete.
Now, to edit it and stuff like with the outline color, like mine is blue, you want to double click, go to stroke, and I’ll move it over here so you can see. You can change the color to whatever you want. I’ll make mine—I’ll just do yellow for now for this video. As you can see, it changes right there. You want to make sure it’s on the outside and you can make it bigger. You can make it the full thing or just around it. If you do this, I would recommend around 4, the blend mode normal, keep this at 100%. Then click OK.
Now, to insert your text, you want to go to the text one and you just want to click it. And then, you can change your color down here. I’ll make it yellow to match the outline, and you can change your text font and the size of it everything up here. Mine is “Birth of a Hero”. You will not have that unless you have downloaded it. I will make a tutorial on how to download fonts later, but I would recommend typing the initials of your YouTube. I’ll just type PCH for PC Help. You can move it around, do whatever you want. And then, I’d say we’d put it right in the middle. That’s basically it.
I did this quick. You’d want to go mess around with like the layers and stuff. You can do whatever you want to make it the best you can. When you’ve done that, you want to go to file, save as, and name it whatever you want but to get it on YouTube as your image, I think it has to be png. If’ I’m wrong, please comment on that. Just make it png and insert it to your videos. If you use Camtasia Studio 6 and do not know how to do it, send me a message and I will make a tutorial.
