[Help] How to watermark entire image like google earths maps
Have you seen the watermarks on Google Earths Maps? They repeat every 50 px or so. One watermark is at the top left corner, then middle left, then bottom left, then middle, then right etc etc. Its all over the Image.
Any idea what I can use to do something like that? I wanted to put my email all over a few images that way.
The images I'm trying to watermark, are not the same size.
I presently use FastStone Photo Resizer.
Why would you need to have so many watermarks? If you are trying to market your images, this can be quite distracting.
A better way is to have a small copyright notice in one of the corners and make the image small enough, so reproduction to larger sizes is not possible. Usually 800px on the long side seems to be the common size.
I'm watermarking huge images. I have an old monopoly game that i've photographed and sending to a game collector.

in any photo editing program, make a black and white image of the text you want in the layout you want in the font you want. save it.
take that image and set its transparency to taste, say 90%, and paste it on top of your other images.

Thanks for the tutorial link. But I still don't see the need for so much watermarking if you are only shooting pictures of a board game you want to sell. Hi-res or not, I can't see anyone wanting to hang an image of a collectible board game on their living room wall But then again, who knows what some people will do for decorating their homes.
If it were fine art and you were trying to market the images, then maybe. Even then, I would go with one tiny watermark and a lo-res image.
But I guess it boils down to individual choice.
