Tutorial: Watermarking Photos with your Blog Button

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share a quick tutorial on watermarking your photos and preview images...with your blog button! 

It's a great way to brand your photos and really make them stand out on Pinterest.

There are many programs that can be used to do this, but I will stick with our friend Powerpoint today...since so many of us have access to it.

Here are the steps:
Step One
Open a new file in Powerpoint.

Step Two
 Go to Insert and choose Picture.

Step Three
Make any adjustments to the picture you would like, such as sizing.

Step Four
Just as you did in Step Two, insert a picture...this time choose your button.

Step Five
Arrange your button as you would like it to appear on the image.

Step Six
Select both the image and your blog button.

Step Seven

 Right-click on the screen and choose Save as Picture.

And that's it! You will now have a watermarked image, all branded with your logo...
Helpful Hint: You may want to save the file you create in Powerpoint. That way, you can just add additional slides to Powerpoint and copy and paste your button onto each new image...to save a few additional steps in the future.

I hope this was of some help if you are looking to try something similar! Thanks for stopping by :)

  12. This is so much easier than trying to do it in Adobe Photoshop. Duh...why didn't I transition to this a long time ago? Thanks for the always clever hints, Kristen :)

  13. Your tutorials are always so helpful. I always forget to do anything to my pics before I post, and I'm realizing more and more how important it is to copyright them in some way. This is great--thank you!

  16. Thanks for this tip. I know you are not a DJ but I was wondering if you take requests - for your tutorials??? I am looking for some helpful tips on adding my name/blog address to TpT products. I tried the footer but it is too high - do I just have to go through slide by slide and readjust.
