Automatically Add a Watermark Text or Logo in Photoshop

Hello. It is time for actions in particular. We're going to create watermarks. So we're going to record our custom own action, click on it and just hit play and then it's going to add our watermark OK. Of our author right in the middle there. Okay, we can do it over and over again on every image. We can also do it with logos. So I've got one here that we make in this particular video on logos goes in the bottom, right, bottom right, super quick, super easy, saving you loads of time. We love actions. Let's go. Alright, let's get started by opening up our exercise files. You'll find them in the exercise files under 03 preferences and workflow. And let's open up image 1, 2, 3 and four. We'll start with image one. So let's quickly look at what actions are if you haven't used them before. Let's go to window and go to actions. And basically all they are is steps and Photoshop that somebody else has recorded. You'll see here like there's one here for a vignette. If I twirl it down, it just me...

ans just going through steps and photocopies, take a snapshot at a feather. Make a copy of the layer village. All these steps are just recorded in here so you can use some of the default ones. These haven't been updated since like it feels like the nineties if you click on wood frame and hit plus. Okay says it has to be that big. It's okay. And you get a very 19 nineties wood frame around the outside, you might love it and there you go, just click on that button, you can see over here we've got kind of images. The frame can be turned off. So basically somebody before us has created this wood frame recorded it, saved it as the default ones in Photoshop. I'm going to go to file revert that's going to go, there's just too many undoes that's probably happened so far. Revert goes back right back to the beginning so you can play around with these ones. There's a few more in here. Okay. There are some say text effects, you can scroll up here. This panel is a little bit hard to use. I won't lie to you. And the easiest way is to say twirl up the default ones, grab some text dan move to you can see it's just got type that means that this one needs to have a type layer selected and if I had water reflection and hit play, it's going to give me a kind of a Ripley watery effect and you can see they're all separate layers. So some of them are kind of cool and lots of them. Lots of them aren't. So let's look at making our own one and we'll do you specifically the watermark, let's go to file and let's go to Riverton. I'm going to click on text effects and just hit the trash can to get rid of them. They're not deleted forever. I can go back and get them. So basically all we're gonna do is type some text in the middle and record it at the same time. I want to record it in this default actions. I'm going to click on this one that says I'm going to make a new action. This little turned up page here, let's give it a name and we'll call this one watermark. This one's gonna be a watermark for just text. You can give it shortcut keys. But if you like me on a Mac, none of these work that'll open itunes or something else. So let's just click record and now you gotta be careful. It's remembering every single thing you do. Okay. The little record button is going and we freak out. I do anyway. So just remember it's going to record every step. So our steps are going to be the type tool. I'm going to pick a color for my type. I'm going to click once in here type now this isn't my photograph. This is one from and from a splash. So this is paul Herman's photograph. So I'm going to be doing it for him. The copyright symbol. And if you're like me, I can never remember what key it is on a pc or Mac just hold down your alt or option key and just smash away the keys. It's my method anyway until I find the copyright got lucky. Okay with it being a watermark, You now decide on how big it is. Okay. I'm just transforming it. So I wanted to be that big And I'm going to lower the opacity. I'm on my move tool. I'm just going to type any of the numbers on my keyboard. Okay. You can see, I've said the capacity to 50%. Now one thing you might have to do is it's a little bit ugly, but it'll look good against black or a dark background, but it's going to be a little bit lost here in the white. So often an easy way to kind of have both ways. Okay, instead of just creating two separate actions is just to add a drop shadow to it. Okay, drop shadow. It's working for me means it can be seen up here and down here fine. Like the capacity again you can start to see is recording everything. So I'm not going in a very linear method here. I'm kind of working it out. You can go through and delete these afterwards if you want to make it all nice and pretty, you don't have to though. I never do. So I wanted that. I wanted to be in the middle and that's going to be it. I'm going to hit the stop button so it's recorded now. Let's look at image to and what we need to do now is play back that thing we've recorded that action now. Weirdly it'll if I hit play now it'll play from where this little gray highlight is. So it's only going to do the move layer. So you need to click back on there for some reason then hit play and it's going to run through them and watch it. It'll scream through all these. Watch Okay, so fast. Used to, used to be able to like see it topple through them all. But hey, you can see their editor watermark. Come on. All right. Let's get a little bit more advanced and let's say we want to update it because we're going to run into trouble. Like that's fine. That's fine. That's good. Let's say let's do two things. I want to put an image okay in it rather than text. So I'm gonna go file revert back to the beginning and instead of doing this one here, I'm just going to toilet up so it's nice and tidy. I'm going to create a new one. Okay? And this one is going to be called watermark. But this one is going to be my logo instead of just typing in and I've got a logo that we've already made click record basically. It's the same thing. We're going to go to file and place embedded though instead of typing out text In your three preferences, there's logo white. I'm going to click place, I'm gonna get it to the right size. Okay, there's works for me, enter on my keyboard, you can see it's recording place I'm gonna lower the opacity down to like maybe, I have my drop shadow again. Here we go. Let's do something even more advanced because basically we can stop that now and go and play it. Actually, let's do that. Let's stop it. Go over here, go back to the top, hit play. And it goes and brings through my logo on. Well, batch them in the next video at the moment. We're just doing the action and we'll show you how to do them to lots of hundreds of images in one go. That'll be the very next video. So file let's go back to revert. Let's go back to this one. So another bit more advanced action. Nous Okay, we've done this, but let's say we want to adjust it again. Like do something else. We want to put it down the bottom, right? Like this. Okay, so we've already created this. How do we go and edit it? What we can do is we can say here at this stage, I wanted to start recording again, and whatever you do from now on, we'll just add to that list. I want to show you a little trick of how to do it in the bottom, right? Because it's not it's not as simple as it sounds. It's a little workaround. So what we need to do is we need to select both of these layers and then use the line functions up here, but it doesn't work because of the background. This background here because it's locked, gives us all sorts of grief. Right? So all we need to do is double click the background click OK, You should give it a name then we can use the feature instead of just like shift clicking like we do up here. We can use like an automated feature that the actions is going to like a little bit better because it likes going to hear just going select all layers. Okay, finds that easier Then at the top here we can go I would like to line to the right and then I want to go down to the bottom. You can see in here it's just a lining that currently is. I have selected that one. Does the bottom that one does the left. Next thing I want to do is I want to have just the logo last selected and I want to move it up into the left. You can kind of see there in my little tool tip there saying kind of come up 32 pixels and across 44. That's kind of cool because it means it's going to work fine for portraits. Gonna go bottom right and then just kind of come out that amount of space makes sense. Kind of let's hit stop now. Hopefully if I go to image three, I can go back up to watermark logo, hit play and added it to the bottom. Right? I'm sure I've said the bottom left before but just kind of comes out a few pixels. Let's try it here for one that's kind of like just a different shape or at least back to this beginning one. That's a really different shape. Let's delete the text of it and let's go play. Cool. Alright, my friends, that is going to be it for creating watermarks. We do text and the logo and the next video. Actually the second one after this one. Next one, we'll do some more advanced actions and the video after that. We'll do kind of matching so we can do them for a zillion different images, all in one big go, Alright, I'll see you there.

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
