There are several unique benefits to creating a Logo or Watermark, to put on your photos or artwork, as a brush in Photoshop. You can easily adjust the size, position, color, opacity, and some many other facts over placing a .png or .esp/.psd file over the top of your final image. I am using Photoshop CS6, but I am sure it works the same in CC or even in older version of PS. Firstly you will need something like a Wacom Tablet if you want a hand drawn item. You could use your mouse, but it is far easier with a tablet. If you are just using fonts, images online, then a tablet is not necessary, but still a great tool.
So after deciding what it is you want for your logo or watermark, create a new page in PS, make it fairly large, you can always reduce the size later. Then by drawing, or signing your name etc you can then place on main page. Remember to add an additional layer to each new section as you go, just in case you want to make changes.
First sign your name with then pen, then perhaps add a copyright log (you’ll find this under the custom shape tool, then using the Text tool you can perhaps add your website or blog. Remember to keep all text, logos, and text in plain black, this can be easily changed later.
Once you are happy with the way the logo looks, select Edit and scroll down to Define Brush Presets
You can then rename your new brush in the pop up box. Select the brush tool and enter the brush presets……..your new brush will be there are the bottom. Just remember you to save / load your brush presets. You can use almost anything to create new brushestext, images etc Explore have fun.
As with any brush you can change the color, thickness, position, opacity, the sky is the limit.
So have fun
