In this mini tutorial, we’ll show you how to watermark multiple images in Photoshop to streamline your editing process while also protecting your photos. We’ll also cover what batch watermarking is and why you should use this effective process. 

Alright, let’s get started!

What Is a Watermark and Why Watermarking Your Images?

Photographers and artists often use watermarks to safeguard their work. 

They’re usually a faint logo or text, elegantly blended into the image so they don’t overpower it – yet remain difficult to remove or obscure in order to protect against unauthorized usage. 

Transparent designs are a popular choice for this purpose, leaving images open for appreciation while maintaining safe boundaries of ownership over them.

Adding a watermark to an image can provide much more than just asset protection. It allows real estate photographers to clarify that the photo is protected and not for public use, while also building brand awareness by including their logo or name on it. 

Furthermore, watermarks are essential tools in maintaining your intellectual property rights and amplifying the visibility of your work. 

It’s an easy way to secure the recognition you deserve and protect your images from any unauthorized use.

Not only does it ensure that your images are used in approved campaigns, but it also gives credit where credit’s due – making sure everyone knows who created the masterpiece.

You can either watch the video or continue reading the text below:

Step 1. To get started, Open an Image of your choice in Photoshop.

Step 2. Next, go to the Windows Tab and then select the Actions Panel. Here create a New Folder and name it “Watermark.”

Step 3. Now, create a New Action and name it “Logo” and then click Record. Once this is selected everything we do will be recorded.

Step 4. We are now going to add a watermark file, so go to File> and then click Place Embedded and choose your watermark file. You can resize the watermark and place it anywhere you’d like. You can also lower the opacity if you wish to make the watermark more transparent.

Step 5. Next, go to File> click Save a Copy and save it in the Watermark Folder or on your Desktop.

Step 6. Once you have saved your copy, you can choose your desired Compression Quality. Then, click the Stop Button on the Actions Panel.  

Automating the Watermark Process

Step 7. In the next step, let’s automate the action. Go to File> select Automate and click Batch. Here in the batch window please make sure that the “Set” Folder and “Action” are selected.

Step 8. Select the Source Folder that contains your images and check the boxes for “Suppress File Open Options Dialog” and “Suppress Color Profile Warming.”

Step 9. Now, select or create the Destination Folder and set the File Name parameters like the Document Name and the Extension.

Step 10. Finally, click OK and your images will begin being automatically watermarked. Once completed, locate your folder and review all of your images to see that they are correctly watermarked.

And that’s it! You’ve now successfully added a watermark to multiple images in Photoshop!
