© Cazzy-Designs 2008 - Tutorial written 29th May 2008

The photographs used in this tutorial are copyright of Cazzy-Designs.

For this tutorial you will need:
Paint Shop Pro 8 (any version will do however)
Photographs you wish to display online
Fonts of choice for watermarking 


Open the photographs you wish to edit for web in PSP. Press Shift and D to duplicate each picture, making sure you close off the originals so they dont get overwritten or damaged.

Go to Image, Resize, and resize the Image using the settings below.

Now go to Adjust, Sharpness, Sharpen.

If you wish to make any other enhancements, make them now.

Select your text tool. Using a font of your choice and a large font size, setting your foreground colour to none and background colour to a contrasting colour, type your copyright information into the text box. A thick font such as atomic works well for this. Click apply to apply the text.

Go to Objects, Align, Center in canvas. Now right click the text in the layer pallete and convert to a raster layer.

Lower your opacity to around 50% as shown below.

Right click one of the layers in the layer pallete and select Merge, Merge All (Flatten).

Save your newly resized image as a jpeg or png and you are done.

You should now have an image that looks like the image below.
