How to Use the Watermark Tool

With the addition of BeFunky's new Watermark Tool, adding your logo to images has never been easier! Follow along with our guide for more information on adding a watermark and creating a preset to quickly add your watermark to images.

Step 1 - Open your image in the Photo Editor. Adding a watermark is designed to be the last step in your photo editing workflow, so after making all the edits to your image you’d like, click the Save button before selecting Computer.

Step 2 - Once you’ve selected Save to Computer, you’ll notice a new checkbox titled Use Watermark. Check the box and click the button titled Create Watermark Preset to upload your watermark file and start customizing it as a preset.

Pro Tip : It’s best to make sure your watermark has a transparent background and is saved in PNG format – this way your watermark will look seamless no matter what image it’s placed on. For more information on creating a watermark, check out our guide here.

Step 3 - In the Watermark Preset Editor menu that appears, click the Upload Watermark button to upload your watermark. Like we mentioned before, this can be your logo, website url, icon, or any watermark design.

Step 4 - Next, use the sliders to adjust the Placement, Size, Padding, and Opacity.

Adjusting the Size slider to the right will make your watermark larger, while adjusting to the left decreases the size. Adjusting the Padding slider to the right will create more space between the watermark and the edge of the image. And finally, sliding the Opacity slider to the left will make your watermark more transparent, while sliding it to the right will make it more opaque.

Pro Tip: It's best to keep the opacity on watermarks in the 40-60% range, as to not distract too much from the image itself. 

Step 5 - When you’re finished customizing your watermark, click the Save Preset button. Your preset will then be added to the Save menu for adding to every image you save in BeFunky’s Photo Editor, consistently placed every time!

You’ll notice that even after you save a watermark preset, you have the option to edit your customization choices by clicking the Edit Watermark Preset icon in the Save menu. You can also click the plus icon to create as many new watermark presets as you’d like!
