    A useful video…..if you are already familiar with the Photoshop tools. I
    wanted to learn how to create a logo, from scratch. You stared with an
    existing logo and working with it, skipping all the steps necessary to make
    that logo. Your video should be headed: “for experienced photoshop users
    only”. And… not speak so fast. It sounds like the proverbial used car

    I wouldn’t put a watermark in a corner that can easily be cropped off or on
    a part of the image that is all the same color so that content aware fill
    can easily get rid of it.

    Hi ! Thanks for this usefull tuorial ! Actually I am encountering a problem
    when I define a new brush it takes all my frame as a brush and not only my
    3 shapes inside the image. For example your image is a logo with a white
    rectangle/square background and when you define a new brush, your brush is
    only the logo ! I think on step is missing for me.
    (I am a rookie in PS but learning)

    The best part of this tip is taking a color from the existing image and
    using it in the logo. I have seen many photographers have a watermark that
    has color already and they just throw it on top of their photos. So much
    better to create a brush and use an existing color. Great tutorial!!

    Hi Phlearn guys! So, I’ve got an image designed by an graphics arts guy,
    but he only gave me the image as a jpg. I like you’re example, but I’m
    wondering how I can use my converted b&w jpg file and convert it into a
    .png. Before everyone jumps on me, I know I can just “save as”, but the
    image itself has a white background and white portions that should also be
    transparent in the logo (imagine using the word “imagine” as the watermark,
    the inside parts of the letter a, g, and e also need to be transparent. Is
    there a way to do something where I only select colors of a certain
    gradient. I know there is, but I’m a beginner… Also, I’d like to know
    how to make it a .png file instead of as a brush so I can use it as a
    watermark in Lightroom as well instead of having to open every image in

    Do you guys have a video on how to create a logo?? If not I’d love to see
    one of those.

    This is all well and good.
    But sadly, I’ve had to stop using this method years ago. Buttholes kept
    croping or clone brushing my logo/signature out of my photos and art. Then
    they sold it as their own.

    And getting stolen art removed from sites, stores, and objects is a pain in
    the rear.

    As (primarily) a T-shirt designer, I now have to place the faded watermark
    over the subject of the design. I also only post low quality versions
    online. Doing so greatly deters thieves. Doesn’t always stop them though.

    Before uploading a image/design, right-click your image from it’s folder
    and add copyright info into it’s properties. Not sure how to do this on
    Apple or Linux.

    Also, imbed your images in Flash or disable right-click on your sites. The
    harder you make it for thieves to steal, the less likely they will steal
    from you.

    I use Paint Shop Pro and this was helpful for me. It gives me another
    option than the way I’ve been creating Watermarks. Great video.
