watermark

Postby Earthshaker » Mon Dec 31, 2007 1:43 am

I know there is already tutorials on making a bump mapped watermark, I don't need fancy just basic, and a text tutorial I can print, read and follow, no pictures or screen shots, just text.
What I want to do is create a depressed watermark that almost disappears into the host image, such as the one used with webshots, when I get done I need a jpg image. Any help?

You mean a blurry "Watermark" ?

If you get the scripts provided in Foundry FX there's a copyright watermark script-fu that helps you to do a fine watermark

Hope that's what you're asking for...

Ahh, I tried to do a little replica but it look a bit hard to do =/

1) Write the text and put it down to 2.4 oppacity then click on the text layer, right click it "text selection"
2) FX Foundry -> Selection -> Glow , fill the two inputs to 1 and choose white

That's the best I could do if you are still interested, else wait for a more experienced user =/

@ yonyon, yea, I need to remove it =/
