You can use the commands in this section to apply a watermark to the imported picture, to protect it against unauthorized copying. The watermark alters the picture, sometimes giving copyright information, and so discourages people from making copies of it or using it in any other way.
|▪||Watermark: this option lists the various watermarks that you can apply to the picture. You can also apply a custom watermark: select the second preview from the list (Custom...) and import the graphic file that you have prepared.|
|▪||Settings: you can rotate the watermark by 90°, 180° or 270° or flip it horizontally/vertically.|
A watermark must be a graphic .GIF, .PNG, .PSD or .WMF file, with a transparency setting. The watermark is applied over the original picture so that only the parts that correspond to the transparent areas of the watermark can be seen.
The .GIF format can only handle one transparency level, whereas the .PNG and .PSD formats handle up to 256, so you should save your watermark in one of these two formats.
