Photoshop: Watermarking & Copyright

PhotoshopIcon Photoshop: Watermarking & CopyrightPhotoshop: Watermark And Copyright

With all your hard Photoshop work done the last thing you want is someone coming along and stealing your work saying that it was their own. Although you’re using Photoshop you can still get around copyright information (something I do not condone) but why make it easy for them?

What is Watermarking?

Watermarking is the process of placing a semi-transparent logo or text over the top of an existing image to ensure that anyone viewing our image know where this image was created from.  This is the same principle you get when you hold a envelope of note of money up to a light.

This video will explain the basics of how and where you would go to put your copyright and image watermarks on to your pictures to ensure you get the credit you deserve!

As a follow-up to this Photoshop video there is a “Batching” video which will explain how you would perform the same operation repeatedly, this is very useful when used with watermarks.

This video is one of many Photoshop tutorials on this site click here for more.

    ” How do I save the embedded copyright information so nobody else can change it? I added my copy right info to an image, sent the jpeg to my sister who was able to go into File Info and then remove my copyright & add her own… (its was a test run obviously!)”

    does the copyright embedded info make this legal…so if someone steals a design of mine…will the info stored on the design that I’ve put on be sufficient to make a fuss legally if my design is nicked?
