Use PS to raise a watermark on a large image

First of all, try not to be too big, do not let watermark distracting affect the picture itself. The watermark is positioned as neatly as possible and can be considered to align or interact with some of the screen elements.

If it is a photographic work, especially the scenery class, the author's custom is to design a and the location has the associated small icon, and then with 20xx Carl Armen Photography such as improve bigger (slightly loaded) text. Color, the author is accustomed to using a color of the screen directly to take color. In short, is to make the watermark into a personal logo, a part of the screen layout.

Not much to say, above the picture.

Small icon design + retro English font + Align center layout.

Figure 01

This is Notre Dame, with a little thought. The watermark is made into the picture space, which has the effect of perspective, light and depth.

Figure 02

The F1 competition in Barcelona, with a dynamic-style font, is matched with a logo made from the site map of the Catalan circuit.

Figure 03

Figure 04

The Sacred Family Cathedral, then directly using the building's external façade photo vectorization to the seal style with text:

Figure 05

Take part in the photo of the Cannes Advertising Festival, the text of the personal information uses the same font as the Advertising festival logo, and the logo is integrated into the remote mountain fog.

Figure 06

The watermark is made on the cup and the surface of the cup is deformed.

Figure 07

The method of making watermark in Notre Dame back to the top

Enclose the method of making Notre Dame watermark:

First, we open this picture in PS and make a good base watermark.

Figure 08

Figure 09

Put the watermark in the appropriate position of the picture, according to the picture space perspective, using the free transform tool to deform

Figure 10

Copy a layer, slightly translate, and fill a deep hue (from the darkest part of the photo) to create a sense of thickness.

Figure 11

Create a clipping mask by creating a new layer above the top-level layer. With the brush tool, according to the candle and the space relationship between the text and lighting effects of color, there is no skill, mainly on the light and Shadow feel.

Figure 12

Merge these three layers

Figure 13

And then we started using the Blur tool

Figure 14

It can be used to partially blur the grid layer. We use the fuzzy tool to deal with the watermark locally according to the desired depth of the area:

Figure 15

The sense of space level appears!

After that, take advantage of some layer effects (such as the author's use of the gradient overlay, the inner shadow) to its hue, light, brightness, etc. to further adjust (color as far as possible from the original photo to take color, to ensure the unity of the picture tone). At the same time to the location of the watermark, and then do some fine-tuning:

Figure 16

As a result, we have a stereo watermark with spatial depth effect.

Figure 17

There are, of course, many flaws in this case. For example, if you do not use the Blur tool, and the gradient alpha channel with a number of professional depth of field plug-ins, will have a spot, focal external ghosting and other more delicate elements of the virtual Coke effect; The text itself can add some texture, and so on. The pursuit of details of the perfect is endless, here is only a piece of thinking, share a superficial idea-watermarks are not necessarily translucent pressure on the diagram, it can be part of the picture.

Enclose the method of vector watermarking in the photo of the Holy Home Hall:

For example, the author wants to do the CCTV building vector watermark, so first look for material map:

Figure 18

Similar to this. Then we first use PS to deal with:

Figure 19

Pull the map and turn it into black and white.

Then, turn on the AI, create a new document, and drag this layer of Photoshop directly into the AI document.

Figure 20

Here is the play, real-time tracing.

Figure 21

Select the last tracing option, and then test the various settings combinations inside.

Figure 22

Figure 23

Black and white seal it! After we have expanded into a graphic, we get a vector badge. And then with a variety of text design, it is successful.

Figure 24

Match in the picture.
