[singlepic=257,90,90,web20,left]You may or may not want to add a watermark on your images when posting them on the Web in public forums or Websites. You have to ask yourself why go through the trouble? For me, the question isn’t even necessary. Since I sell most of the images I post in public arenas, by respect for my clients buying my images, I add a watermark to reduce the risk of theft long term borrowing. I’ve been asked by many Yanik’s Photo School readers how I add a transparent watermark on my images using Photoshop™. You’ll see that it’s relatively easy.
You can do it with either text or an image.
I’ve added a Youtube version since some readers had mentioned not being able to see the Vimeo movie.
PS: If you want to look for your images online, there a great new tool available called TinEye. TinEyey is like the Google of image search. It still has a relatively small database of online image but it’s growing more and more! Youca can check out my video tutorial on TinEye.com HERE.
