How to Create a Transparent Watermark Image Using Photoshop

I didn't just want to use a simple text as a watermark (not that I have anything against those who do), I wanted to have a more complex image. So I thought I would share with you all my method on "How to Create A Transparent & Unique Watermark Image."

Now open your saved image up in Photoshop.

Now you just have to open it up, copy & paste it on your photos!

Hope this is helpful for all you bloggers, photographers and anyone who wants to watermark their pictures!

PS) I like to save my watermark in a large file and again in a standard file size (which would be the one I usually use, about about 2x2")


  1. Great tutorial! Thanks!

  2. Just what I was looking for!

  3. Your tutorials are so easy to follow. I love the pink hi-lites! Would you share the name of the font you used on your site for the navigation links? It is beautiful and just what I am looking for to make DIY baby announcements. Thanks so much

  4. Thanks! You just made my day. :)

    I am assuming you mean the font for my menu? It's my favorite too! It's called Lavanderia and it is available for free. Just go to the link and you should be able to download it there.

  5. I am loving all the info on your blog! Thank you!

  6. DO you have to have photoshop to use the free downloads. Because I cant change the colors on word or pages

    1. No- see my post with the free arrow downloads to see how you can use them in picmonkey for free.
