Watermarking guidelines



1. Select the Photo and make copies of the original photo.

2. Select the type of watermarking software you want to use, and decide whether you want to



wate
rmark all of your photos at one time or watermark the photos individually.

3. Select the type and size of watermark you want to use. A large watermark covers more of the




photo, making it almost impossible for someone to just crop the watermark out of t
he image.

4. Make all necessary modifications to your image until it has the desired final appearance.

5. Save a final unmarked copy since you cannot embed a watermark in an image that already




contains one.

6. Embed the digital watermark.

7. If the fin
al image should be compressed, compress by converting to JPEG or GIF format.

8. Read the digital watermark after compression to verify it was successful. For Photoshop users



this may require closing and reopening the watermarked image.

9. Publish the
image.
