Default Just got pictures from a couple Ellie Bean models!

I was so excited and didnt get a chance to do anything with them yesterday, so today I am trying to figure out watermarking

Here is the first picture I have watermarked, what do you think? Does the watermark look right? I dont have a fancy logo or anything, but want to get these posted soon and just wanted something to deter people from stealing!

Dont laugh, but just doing this one using an ehow tutorial took me 45 minutes using gimp The longest part~ I had accidentally clicked right to left text and couldnt figure out for nearly 30 minutes why the font wasnt lining up right!

Oh and did anyone else notice that it makes the photo a lot lighter? Not complaining as I think it still looks good (maybe even better?).

Any tips for me to make this process easier/faster would be great! I now have hundreds of photos to start watermarking and it is going to take FOREVER at this rate!!! LOL


*** Just added a picture with the new watermark another HG was so kind as to make for me!!! I like this MUCH better! What do you all think?

Yeah, I am not either, I have went back and forth moving it to the bottom and then back up, but I see the ones on Chinese websites all the time where they just crop to cut off watermarks, and I know I have seen posts here about bloggers, etsy sellers, facebook fan pages, etc. that do the same

I just wasn't really sure how else to do it.

The pics are great! Watermarking...not so much. I mean, you've done a great job, it's just unfortunate that we have to resort to that to deter the thieves out there!

I really need to learn how to make a collage, I love them!

I know! I have had my etsy up since 2009, and I have never watermarked before, but I also havent had the best pictures, I figured with the more professional pictures I would need to start though!

I think I am going to do some searches and see what others have done with their watermarks. I really dont like covering faces/products, but I also know desperate lazy people DO take the time to crop

When putting on the watermark try to reduce the size and have your name all on one line so people can see more of the pictures. I import my photo into Picasa 3. Then click on the ABC text and write your name, then you can pick the font of your choice and you are able to move the text around and place it where you would like.

With the first one I was thinking you could do it off to the bottom right, so its still on part of her chin and chest but not across her face. kwim?

I agree that it really takes away from the pic when it's over the face like that. I really like the one that mysweetbowtique did - great job! I really need to do some more work on my watermark as well - it's on the list...somewhere.
