It is really good process. Sometimes you need to save your job and want to put your name. Thanks.

After hours of pain with Photoshop (I hadn't had any experience with it before), I gave up and made seaarch for "watermark photo". One of the programs I found was watermark factory (http://pickyfiles.com/~i2xy/watermark-photo). This suited me much better. Not Photoshop, but a great tool that worked for me in seconds... Just IMHO...

Anyway, thank you for the tutorial. I'll return to it once I have more complicated things to to my photos than simply batch watermarking...

I have figured out the best way to watermark in alignment with ANY size image in photoshop using only 2 additional and simple steps.

after placing the image or typing the text, (make sure the current layer is the one you wish to move) then select all. Once you have selected all then go to the "layers menu", drop down to "Align Layers to Selection" and do as you wish with the alignment.

Because you did a "select all" command it no longer matters which size your image is nor its orientation.

Thank you all for your helpful information, I hope I have been able to help those that needed it.

you explained what to do if you your typing your watermark ie create new layer, type in the watermark etc but you didnt run through what to do if you have a logo instead of typing so i am stuck, please can you help

This has saved me a ton of work but now that I can batch process the watermark, is there anyway to automatically add the file name to the watermark in the batch process? I do some event work and having the file number displayed on the image should make it easier for people when ordering. I appreciate the help.

Wow - Thanks for this! You just saved me hours of work. This is a great tutorial for watermarking!!

I have Photoshop 7 and would like to take a group of photos and resize them to a specfic pixel size. I was hoping to automate this process but can't find this option in the automate menu. What I did find offers a pre-set selection of sizes but I want to customize.

Do you have any suggestions on how to do this?

Thanks :)

Thanks for this. I used it on the pictures for my photo blog and I had few problems. Once I figured it all out it went quite smoothly. My hero!

What if the watermark is larger than the image size (on certain images) and you want to put the watermark in the center of the image? Everything I try crops the watermark. I need a way to offset from the edges. I found this option in ImageReady but CS2 doesn't have the ability to offset Horizontally Left AND Right. It is one or the other.

Quote: I found this tutorial very helpful, but still have some questions. Many of my images are different sizes (2098x3147 and 2304x3456). Becuase of this, the watermark turns out perfect on some pics and tiny on others. Is there a way to correct this problem?

Is there a way to do this in Photoshop? I don't want any third party program spammers replying. Thanks.

the easy way...

1.- create your watermark and save the psd file its recomended merge the layers preserving the transparency.
2.- open new file only to record your actions
3.- the first action, "place" command in file/place, select the psd file with your watermark
4.- ad your copyrigth info file/file info
5.- open save for web and configure your file settings to save
6.- close the image file/close and when ask you to save file just select no

follow the batch watermarking section in this tutorial


This method allow to save time eliminating the step by step actions like the blending, filter, config options, taking only the final watermark, probably you note its fastest this option than the method in this tutorial.

I am also having this problem when working with both Portait and Landscape images.

the easiest way I've found to watermark a batch of photos is by downloading "picture-shark". It's free and works a treat. Watermarking is all it does.
look it up on google

Another option for positioning watermarks relative to image edges (rather than positioning them absolutely) is to use Image Ready. (If I'm reading it correctly, the solution explained on equilibrium.com requires their automation software to work).
The place dialog in IR has input boxes for displacement in both directions, and you can choose either of the relevant sides to use as the base for the displacement. For example to put the water mark in the bottom right corner, you would choose 'Right Edge' and 'Bottom Edge' and set both values to -20 to set it out from the corner just a bit.
Otherwise the directions in the tutorial for creating an action are pretty much the same in both Photoshop and Image Ready.
At least in IR 7.0 however, the File > Automate menu item is missing. To get around this, once you have created your action, right click on it in the Actions window and select "Create Droplet". Save the droplet to your desktop. Then, simply drag and drop the files you want to process onto the icon on your desktop.

I've never had much use for Image Ready before, but this seems to do the trick quite nicely.
