Create a watermark in Photoshop.
Whether you want to create a signature, type, or shape watermark, begin in the same place.
Open a new file.
Start with a large canvas, like 1920x1080. With that, not only will it work digitally, but you can make the watermark at a high resolution so you can print it in a large size without pixelation, if necessary.
Add your signature, text, or logo.
If you want to use your signature or other handwritten script, use a tablet and a pen tool to get the most natural look. Most of the time, watermarks are white so they show up on the photograph, but you can pick any color you want. If your brand includes a gold logo, go for it. To invert your black watermark to white, press Command + I on a Mac or Control + I on a PC. You can also use different brushes to achieve ink or watercolor effects.
To add type, pick your font. Use the font Bodoni on your business card to convey just the right high-end interior design vibe. Or try Choc font to create a Brooklyn design studio style. Create a text box by clicking the T to open the Type tool. Type your name and then adjust the size, position, and opacity you desire.
To create a new watermark logo, you can start with a template in Adobe Illustrator. Or you can add an existing shape to your text or signature. Just select Window › Shapes, and choose from trees, wild animals, and more. You can also import other shapes or use the Custom Shape tool to draw and edit new shapes for a completely customized logo.
Adjust the opacity.
To keep the watermark from stealing focus from the image itself, lower the opacity. Just double-click on the space to the right of the watermark layer and the Layer Style menu will pop up. Decrease the fill opacity, and, if you’d like, add drop shadows around it for a cool outline effect.
