Gimp - Watermarks





Eyre
Just an extremely simple tutorial on how to make Watermarks in GIMP:

Step One:Open up your image. Go into the Layers, Channels, and Paths window and duplicate the backround once.

Step Two:Go into the GIMP toolbox and select a nice grey for your color.
Something like this:

Back in your image, go to Filters>Text>FreeType. Select which font you are going to use, type it in, and then apply the desired size and rotation. Then click ok to apply it to your image.


Step Three:Go back into the Layers,Channels, and Paths window and select your text layer. Move it down under the duplicated Backround. Give the text layer an opacity of 50% . Then select your duplicated backround layer and give it an opacity of something less than or equal to 50%. It depends on what your aiming for.


Step Four:Preview your image. If it is what you desired, go into the Layers, Channels and Paths window again. Your layers should be in this order:

If they are not, go back to step three and re follow it. Save it as what you want and now you have a watermarked image.

Thanks for the simple tutorial! I usually use Fireworks, but I'd like to learn more on how to use GIMP. I have the portable version (on a flash memory stick) but I've been meaning to put it to good use. This is a good start.
