How to add your watermark using Photoshop Elements

I will over the course of the next few weeks show you some Tutorial on how to add your watermarks using various programs. The first one is using Photoshop Elements which is a FANTASTIC program and is a more user friendly version of the full blown Photoshop. It is also a LOT less expensive too!!

So first off, open up your elements in the edit mode
Got to file and open your card/creation that you want to place your watermark on.

You will now see your card on your workspace

Click on file and place, locate your watermark (always be sure that it is in .png format, which means it has a transparent background)

You will see that your watermark is now on your creation. Of course its probably not the right size nor has it landed in the correct spot where you want it
Grab any of the four handles using you mouse and drag them until you have the correct size that you want. You will see a green check appear, click it when you have it to correct size. Then just take the watermark with your mouse and drag it to where you want it placed.

Go over to your layer palette, click on the arrow that is pointing to the right at the top of the layers palette. This will open up a drop down list. Scroll down to where you see flatten image and click on it!!
This will flatten on your layers for you.
Now all you gotta do is click file, and save to the folder of your choice!!

Hope you found this helpful and if you dont have a watermark, see our great offer on CUSTOM watermarks for only $5.00

Have a superb Sunday
