How to Add a Watermark to Your Photos in Photoshop Elements

On this video Bob Gager, Group Product Manager for Photoshop Elements, demonstrates how to create a watermark using Adobe Photoshop Elements.

Adding a watermark in Photoshop elements is very simple. You need to create a new image (make sure that it is transparent) and create your text/image. We would recommend making it large enough for any size image that you might have (making is smaller is typically not a problem but upscalling it might be) and save it.

Gager use a very simple method for adding the watermark – simply by dragging and dropping the watermark into your image. There are other methods such as creating and saving a brush as a watermark which you can also do (you ca see some of them in Photoshop/Lightroom below – they should apply to Photoshop Elements as well).

We have looked at different ways to create a watermark in both Photoshop and Lightroom as well, Aaron Nace did a video on adding a watermark in Photoshop entitled “The Best Way to Watermark Your Images in Photoshop“, we also looked at “Creating Watermarks in Lightroom 5” by Mark Wallace, a different look at the same thing on “How to Add a Watermark in Lightroom 5” with Howard Pinsky and “Creating a Watermark in Photoshop – A Quick Tutorial” by Jen Swedhin.
