How to Watermark Your Photos on PicMonkey
While I have a Photoshop program that I am learning to use, I sometimes want to do something quick and easy with my photos. My go to tool for this is the online photo editor known as PicMonkey. They offer a variety of tools that are easy to use and give stunning results. They also offer a paid version which gives you a few more features. In this tutorial I am going to guide you through making a quick water mark for your photos using their free tools.
Head over to PicMonkey.com. You will see a few options along the top of the page. Click on Edit.
Once you click on Edit, a window will open taking you to your photos, choose the photo you want to use.
Your photo will now be open in the PicMonkey edit area. You will see a long narrow box to the left with options. Click on the Tt as seen in the photo below.
Once you have clicked on the Tt a list of fonts will appear. Go down the list and chose one you would like to use. PicMonkey offers a nice selection of free fonts. Any font that you see that has a gold crown can only be accessed if you have their paid subscription, Royale. I chose Verdana for this one.
Your selection for font will be highlighted. Now you need to go to the top and click on 'add text'.
You will now see an adjustable text box appear on your photo (1.) This is movable. Around the four corners of the text box you will notice little circles, you can use these to make the text area larger, wider, narrower or smaller. The circle in the center top is used to rotate or turn your text.
To the right you will notice another box has appeared.
2. Here you can adjust the color of your text.
3. This slider will fade your text if want. Slide it to the right until you get the fade look you want.
4. Here you can Bold, Italic, and center your text to the left or right.
5. This slider allows you to adjust the size of your text.
Move the text box to where you want it to appear on your photo. Type in whatever your personal watermark is to be. Adjust the size, color if you want, fade it or leave it as it is. Click on the save button (at the top above your photo) and that's it your done!
Of course this is simple watermark. You can make it as elaborate as you like. When you first open your photo in the PicMonkey editor try clicking on the butterfly icon first instead of the Tt for text. This will take you into the overlay area. Here you will find all sorts of overlays. You can adjust the size, color and fade of them. Then just go back to text and add text over it. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination. Have fun!
