    Hi! πŸ™‚

    I was wondering if anyone had any tips on designing a simple, but professional, looking watermark for my photos. I’ve used the watermark that Lightroom sorta makes for you, but it really doesn’t look that great – at least to me anyway! πŸ™‚ My family has Adobe InDesign, Lightroom and Photoshop.

    You have all the tools you need to create a professional watermark, @creative-click-photography! Before jumping into photography, I worked as a graphic designer full time, so in today’s webinar I’ll share 4 tips that I think will help you get started in putting together an awesome watermark! (And if we have time, I’ll show you how I automatically apply the watermark to all my images using Lightroom too.)

    Sounds great @jamesstaddon. I missed the live webinar unfortunately, and the link for the replay does’t work anymore. I’m guessing you’ll put the webinar on here at some point?!

    Yes, @creative-click-photography, here’s link to the snippet of webinar where I talked about how to design text for a watermark and how to apply it to your photos using Lightroom. Would love to see your watermark when you’ve finished putting it together!

    Well, it’s taken awhile, but I’ve finally had a go at designing a watermark. Yay! I’m sort of happy with it, but then I’m not sure if it’s quite the right look or really suits my photos. What do you think? I’m all ears for anyone’s suggestions. πŸ™‚

    You’ve done a good job with combining a creative flair with a clean business type look. I like it; well done! πŸ™‚

    I agree – it looks great!
    As far as whether or not it suits your photos, perhaps you could post a couple photos with it on them to see what it looks like?

    @creative-click-photography, I think it looks fantastic. This reminds me that I need to come up with a better watermark for my photos (right now it’s just my name in Kaiti SC).

    I’m not sure if it’s quite the right look or really suits my photos. What do you think?

    I’d say so!

    What font did you use? The script one.

    Thanks so much, @morganwriter1gmail-com, @bennett-family and @loganlamar! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad to finally have my watermark done.

    @jamesstaddon – The script is called Shellomita from dafont. Thanks for your thoughts on the webinar the other day! I’ve adjusted ‘photography’ – now there’s equal space and it looks more balanced. πŸ˜€
