Creating a watermark"
If you'd like to link to this tutorial, or print for your own use. Please feel free to do so. This tutorial was written using PSP 9. This will also work for 8, 9, 10 and 11.. and 12
First of all, open a new image in PSP, 400x400 pixels.
Now you will need to click on the text tool option, the "A" icon. You're welcome to choose any font you'd like to use for your watermark, the size will depend on the font. I usually use 22 or 24, it works best to me. Set the stroke to null, and fill to white. Antialias and floating both checked.
When you've applied your text, you will see Marching ants around your text. Click on your layer palette, make sure that you see "Floating Section" highlighted, you need to right click, and click delete layer. Now your marching ants will be in the form of your text.
Up above click on effects, then you need to find 3D effects, drop shadow. Make sure you have these settings:
Vertical offset: 2, Horizontal offset: 2, Opacity: 50, Blur: 3.5, Color: Black.
Apply that drop shadow, then you need to repeat the steps, effects, 3D effects, drop shadow, this time making a couple of changes.
Vertical offset: -2, Horizontal offset: 2. This is the only changed that you need to make, remember. Apply that drop shadow.. We're about done!
Now you need to go back to your image, go to Selections, select none, remove the marching ants.
If you'd like to crop your watermark, you can do that. You might not need to, using 400x400 pixels, but it is your choice, on how much room you want around the watermark. To crop your watermark, click on your crop tool in PSP, it is the 4th tool on the tool bar. Then go to your image, drag your mouse, until you have a rectangular square around your watermark, click twice. You've cropped your image.
Now all you have to do is save your watermark image. When you'd like to add your watermark to your tags, click open, find your watermark, in the file you've saved it in, and apply!
