Video Tutorial: Making a batchable bottom centered logo action in Photoshop

This video tutorial will show you one of the many ways to add a logo watermark in Photoshop.  This tutorial is brought to you by Matt Antonino, an MCP Actions BLOG guest.

This tutorial is for a creating an action that is batchable.  It places the logo in the bottom center for your photo.  It is meant for high resolution images.  It could be resized as part of the action at the end if you wish.

I do have a free Stampable Watermark action on my website, but that one cannot be batched, but can be placed anywhere.  So check out both and see what works for you.

    I just did this on a batch of web images for a client last week. The only difference I do is File>Place command and then align the layers so it is placed on the bottom right of the image. This is a great alternative. Thanks.

    Bettie – that is a great way to do it as well – that is actually how I do it. But this tutorial was really good. Plus – older versions of PS seem to do better with this way. But yes – you can align it wherever you want. Jodi

    Glad to see everyone loves the tutorial so far. I enjoyed making them. One thing about the tutorial – in mine, I put 2″ on the bottom for the second canvas enlargement. If you want to be uber specific and make sure it works 100% of the time exactly perfectly, don’t do that. lol Instead, put it 100px more than your logo height. If your logo height is 500pixels high, make the second enlargement 600pixels on the bottom only. That will ensure your logo works 100% perfectly every single time!

    This is a life saver..after several attempts, I have created my action! Everything runs fine..only when I try to run it a second time on a newly opened photo, the action turns the new photo into the same image as the last photo. First photo is fantastic…subsequent photos all come out the same as the first. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Nevermind..I had a copy merged command in my action that was making a mess of things. I took it out and now I am in business. Thank you so much for posting this tutorial!
