So your brand new Photologo has been delivered to your email box and you can’t wait to start signing your precious photographs, but you’re not sure where to begin?
If you are used to editing your images in Lightroom, but watermarking is not your forte, I put together an easy tutorial where you will learn the easiest way to apply your Photologo into your digital creations using its Watermark tool.
In a few quick steps, I will show you how para proteger sus fotografías contra el uso no autorizado y comenzar a construir su marca personal.
PASO A PASO
First of all, install and launch Cuarto de luz. For this tutorial, I’m using Lightroom Classic CC. Next, click on the Importar button which is placed in the bottom left corner. Lightroom supports JPEG, PNG and also RAW files.
Aquí hay una guía rápida de las herramientas que necesitará:
Now it’s time to open the Watermark Editor. Go on the top left corner in the main menu: Lightroom menu > Edit Watermarks (Mac) or Edit menu > Edit Watermarks (Windows). The Watermark Editor window is pretty small by default. My suggestion is to click and drag the top right corner of the window to enlarge it. This will make applying and editing your Photologo much quicker and easier.
3) In the Watermark Editor, select Graphic as the Watermark Style. A message should pop up prompting you to choose the file you need to sign your photographs. Go to the folder where you have your Photologo files stored and choose the one that fits best. Your custom Photologo is made to fit a wide variety of cases, so the file you received from our studio contains multiple different versions to choose from.
Para ser más específicos, cada Photologo se entrega en los siguientes formatos y tipos:
& #8211; Versiones en blanco y negro
& #8211; Alta y baja resolución (de ambos colores)
& #8211; En formato de archivo PNG
& #8211; Con un fondo transparente, listo para ser aplicado.
Para imágenes más oscuras o saturadas de color, sugerimos usar un Photologo blanco.
Para imágenes con tonos claros o fondo brillante, elija la versión en negro de su logotipo.
4) Expand the Watermark Effect drop-down menu: you can now use the panel that you see to Resize your signature Photologo and to choose an Anchor Point to place it on your photo. Then, if you want to keep your logo more subtle, simply adjust the Opacity level on the same menu.
Once you have adjusted your watermark settings according to your preferences, click up to the drop-down menu in the upper left of the window where it says Custom, and select Save Current Settings as a New Preset. Enter a preset name for the current settings (I chose My-name_WhitePhotologo) and tap save.
The good news is that you can save several watermark presets using, for example, both the white and black versions with different anchor points. Just repeat the steps above selecting a different Photologo and choosing a different placement.
IMPORTANT: You will not see your Photologo on your photos while in Lightroom. The watermarking feature is only applied upon exporting. To do that, go to File>Export and open the Export dialog box, scroll down to the Watermarking section and select the watermark preset you previously saved from the drop-down menu, then tap the Export button in the bottom right of the window.
Your photographs are now signed and ready to go!
