    I was looking around to see what the best way to put your signature/watermark on your pictures and I cant find anything thats helpful. How do you guys do them on yours?

    either create an action to automatically do it (in photoshop) or save your watermark as a brush (also, in photoshop)

    I don't use watermarks any longer; I add my info to the exif. Makes for a cleaner pic and 1 less step when I run batches.

    Derrict posted a couple pretty good links on how to make a border macro, you can add your watermark into that also.

    I gotta find the links again :o

    another alternative is ACDSee Pro. This is an image management/catalog app with lots of batch functions like watermarking.

    If you create the logo with a transparent background, you can put it on the image then move it to the corner you want it.

    I remember seeing this pic on myspace :wavey:

    open both images in PS.

    create a new layer on your car image, add logo to that layer.

    Move logo to where you want.

    Lower opacity of new layer in layers menu til you get it where you want.

    flatten image

    save new image

    Tip: Recreate your logo the size you want, and with a transparent background. I went in and manually deleted the white areas of your logo to make it blend into the image. That would be a pain in the ass to do every time.

    My friend directed me to this website www.watermarker.com and I downloaded the trial version of "AiS Watermark Pictures Protector". Seems to work well, you guys could try it out if you want.

    when you create a new image, just set the background to transparent. when you save it, the transparency stays.
