I am planning to list my MJ stam bag on ebay;I'm very happy because a friend with near 100% feedback will be listing it for me (I have never bought or sold anything on ebay before).

So I have taken some pictures to send her...now how do I watermark them? I have Adobe Photoshop...what should I click? Which tool do I use? Can I use photoshop for this?

I have tried it out and was able to type my name across the picture in photoshop...is this a watermark?

Thank you :smile:

If you were able to type your name across the picture that should do fine. People either do this in a clear font color so that you can see under the writing (true watermark) or you could try to do a similar effect by making it a pastel color.

click on the text tool. it's the one with a capital T and then click anywhere on the photo and start typing.

you should be able to play with the opacity, a slidey thing that lets you see thru the text. hope that helps!

Thanks Peeps!!! I will play with it some more :smile:

Swankymama I have Adobe photoshop 7.0...that's all it says under "programmes".I think it's pretty standard...I don't work in design or anything;in fact the only thing I do with this programme is resizing and cropping pics :lol: .

While your type/font is highlighted you should be about to adjust that layer. Like Fayden said, there's usually an opacity slider.
