Watermarks are a great tool to prevent unauthorized use of your work. By adding unique text or an image in the background of your PDF document, everyone will know who’s responsible for the excellent content on the page.
Add your watermark.
The easiest way to add a watermark to a PDF using a Mac is to download PDF editing software like Adobe Acrobat. With the right tools, you can update your watermark in just a few easy steps:
- In the top toolbar, choose Tools > Edit PDF > Watermark > Add.
- Specify the watermark you want to add.
- Click Save.
When specifying the watermark you’d like to use, there are a few options available:
- Reuse an existing watermark from the Saved Settings menu.
- Create a text watermark by selecting Text and writing out your watermark. Adjust the formatting options as desired.
- Use an image by browsing for a file on your Mac’s hard drive.
You can also add watermarks to specific pages by clicking the Page Range Options button in the watermark options menu. That will allow you to choose a page range to apply the watermark.
Edit the watermark to suit your style.
Your chosen watermark should show your style as much as the content above it. To change the appearance of a watermark, click on Appearance Options while in the Add watermark menu. This will let you adjust aspects of your watermark, including size, font, color, style, and when to display.
Once your watermark is perfect for your style, you can add some finishing touches with an online PDF editor, and you’re ready to share your PDF file without worrying about someone taking credit for your amazing work.
