    Creating a watermark on pictures...

    Okay, now that I have Photoshop, one thing I want to do is creat a watermark for my pictures I post online. Now, I know how to do this with text, but I want to do it with my company logo.



    Kind of like what Todd did with his logo here(hope you don't mind Todd)...




    My question is, how do I do this? I don't want the color of the logo, only the outline, then create it into a watermark.

    Also, once this is completeld, how can I make it accessable so I only have to make a couple of clicks to import it into a picture?


    Thanks,
    Nick

    i think you should just download the gif one,
    and then use W in photoshop for majic wand tool
    right click select inverse
    and the copy the image and paste it on the new layer for your photo

    How did you do this? I am at work at the moment, and have my laptop with me. I can not connect my laptop to the internet, and therefore can not download that image.

    How did you transform my original logo to the colorless logo?

    you open both your photo and that gif file in Photoshop
    and the photo file you create a new layer
    go back to the gif logo picture
    use W in photoshop for magic wand tool
    right click select inverse
    and the copy the image
    in the new layer of the photo you paste the logo
    set that new layer fill and opacity option to 60%

    LOL i didn't quite answer your question,
    you just use magic wand, delete the white background,
    next you right click select inverse
    then you change the color to black and white option...
    that is it...

    I guess I'm just not getting it. Can't make this work with your instructions

    It's doing nothing that you say it should in your step by step

    Re: Creating a watermark on pictures...

    which part is not working?
    you have to make sure the layer is not lock as well...
    because sometime when they are lock, you cannot do anything
    just duplicate the layer and delete the lock layer,
    it should do the magic work.

    and thanks for replying my question.
    so worst case, i can wash it and apply a second coat after a day?
    would this actually be better than waxing after 20 min?

    Yes, worst case, just rewash the vehicle again. And always let the 1st coat cure for about 8 or more hours(some say 24 hours) before moving on to the 2nd coat.
