    ok, this is probably a dumb question. How do you make the logo names on your pictures? I just got photoshop 4 and am still learning how to do everything. Can you use that or do you use something else?

    I created mine in photoshop with a couple different brushes and fonts found online (though mine isn't as snazzy as some on here!). I just played around with it until I got what I liked. I then compressed the image and layers and saved it on my hard drive. Now after I'm finished editing a picture, I open my watermark and move it onto the photo. I'm able to change the size and placement from there.

    I make a brush open a new document. make sure it's transparent. choose the text tool and choose a font that you like and type what you want your watermark to say. Make sure the document is big enough around 1200 pixels or a bit bigger. I'm not sure, you can always change your brush size later. Then when you are done with your typing, go up to edit-define brush-name your brush and you're finished! you can find it again if you click on the brush icon and right click and look for it. You might want to save it if you don't want to lose it later on.

    You mean I could make it into a brush and not have to open my image each time?! I'm going to have to check this out when I get home

    I make mine into brushes too, in PSP, much less hassle and you can change its color etc. easily too. They're easy to make.

    I JUST figured out how to do it the easy way last night. Took me about 2 hours, but I did it! I use PSP, so it was different, but I made it into a picture tube, but now I wish I made it into a brush. I'll try again!

    I use two tones in mine, I don't think I could make that into a brush. but I have mine saved in a psd by itself, the "g" and "photography" are each in their own layer, and I just drag those layers to my web-sized image and adjust from there.
