HOW TO MAKE / CREATE YOUR OWN PHOTO WATERMARK



I guess everyone know what is watermark right? Watermark can be seen usually in pictures. Mostly been use by bloggers, photographers, artist and lot more. It similarly to signature I guess.

The importance of having a watermark are to avoid any exploitation of our original pictures. It also to avoid people claims that our picture been shot or take by someone else.

Unless, if the owner of the pictures provide the stock photos to be used by everyone, then it is okay.

Taking photo is not an easy task as it may seem. We need a lot of time to take or shot one perfect photo. So, yeah watermark is really important.

That is why I've decided to create one watermark permanently for me to use for all of my pictures. Plus, I saw several of my blogger friends already have their own watermark such as Siqah , Hanis Amanina , SS , Jari Manis , Cik Epal and lot more. 

I've been Googled how to create my own watermark. But, all the articles that I found are taught using the Adobe Photoshop. Sadly, I don't have Adobe Photoshop in my laptop and I don't even know how to use it.

So, I've tried to find other solution to create my own watermark. And, I found it in Youtube. Yeay!!

The video taught how to create our own watermark using PowerPoint. When I saw " PowerPoint ", I jump up and down happily. It's PowerPoint guys!!!  I've been use PowerPoint most of my working day. For presentation. For any event teaser. For picture editing. You name it. Obviously, I'm a Pro in PowerPoint. Hahaha....Chewah~ =p


HOW I CREATE MY OWN WATERMARK USING POWERPOINT

FYI, this tutorial is for PowerPoint version 2010-2013 . 

Let's see how I do it.

1) I love flower pictures that looks alive. So, I search for "watercolor flower" in Google. Then, I found several flower pictures that I love. shown as below.



2) Open PowerPoint with a blank sheet. Then, import the picture of your selection. If we directly import any picture from Google. There will be a white or color background of that picture. I want to remove that background.



HOW I  REMOVE THE WHITE / COLOUR BACKGROUND

1) Insert the picture that you choose. And, click on the picture to make the "pictures toolbar " appear. Then, click on the "format background".

2) After click on the format background tab , the "purple box" will appear as below. 


3) Take the cursor and make the box fit with the purple box perfectly to capture only a picture. Then , click on the "Keep Changes" tab.

4) Walla!! You get the picture that you want without the white background. You can just drag the picture a little bit from the text box to ensure that only picture been captured.


5) Then , you can click "Save as picture".

6) Repeat the same step for other pictures that you like. Then, you can add text to the picture. Do some editing. And, you done!!! =)

As you can see in my blog. I have change my blog header, my photo have watermark and my signature for every entry. All that items, I've done it by using PowerPoint. 

What do you think about all the three items? Is it okay? 

If you are still unclear how to do it . You may see the tutorial video that I've learn from by clicking on the link below .
