    Default How do I build a watermark?

    I want to build a watermark for "Soup Bowl Photography". I have just been adding text to the images. I found a picture of a plain white soup bowl. I am going to wrap "Soup Bowl Photography" around it, but how do I save it to where all I have to do is paste just the bowl and not the rectangle image without having to cut out the image everytime?

    What i do is just create a brush for my watermark - works for me.
    here is the explanation right here in this post - other methods are listed in the thread link below

    "The coolest sig technique I've read about lately (but haven't tried yet) was in Kelby's PSE7 book where he scanned his signature (well actually it was the co-author Matt Koslowski's signature) and turned it into a brush preset. That way if you do use PS/PSE (any version, and I'm sure there's ways to do this with Gimp or Corel too) for touching up your best images you can easily brush on your signature anywhere you like on the image and even make it lighter or darker, bigger or smaller, to suit your background. I'm sure to many of you that's old news..."

    This can be done in Photoshop fairly easily. Just copy the layer (merge them if you are using multiple layers) then click Edit - define brush set - and name the brush something. THAT'S IT. YOU'RE DONE.

    Now all you have to do to use your new signature brush is go into the brush palette and look at the brushes. Your custom brush will be the last brush in the list. Click it and put it wherever you want in the photo. You can alter the colour of the new brush by clicking the squares (The black square on top of the white square in the main vertical toolbar) and choosing whatever colour you want. You can alter the opacity of the brush by moving the opacity layer.
