How To Get Your Own Watermark for All Your PicMonkey Images #Pinspiration

Seeing as I’m currently out of town, I knew I’d have to get creative with this week’s Pinspiration post. I was thinking that I’d try another fitness pin but then I remembered this pin – How to Create a Custom & Transparent Watermark in PicMonkey.

I’m not gonna retype all of her instructions because I think she does a pretty fab job of doing it on her own but I tried it out as I’m a HUGE fan of PicMonkey.

PicMonkey is a free online photo editor. There’s a premium membership you can purchase which I use – it’s $33 a YEAR. You seriously can not beat that price with any other photo editing software. I was previously using a $30/month subscription to Photoshop which admittedly does a lot more – but if you’re only looking to do some basic photo editing and image creation, PicMonkey’s for you.

So after making a little watermark without much thought or time (this was seriously only a few steps!) The key to this whole thing was download her transparent background graphic so you could make your watermark.

Once I did that, I was able to choose a font, type my site name and add a little stamp – I went with this cute flower branch but you can obviously brand it with your logo or favicon or something that brands you as being you:


Then it was literally as easy as opening up my sunset photo. The key next was adding “my own” overlay. I opened up my saved watermark file and voila!:


And this is why Pinterest rocks. 10 minutes and I learned something completely useful and easy that will help improve my blogging life.

Pinspiration is a weekly series I do on Tuesdays with 3 other fabulous bloggers. We take one pin we saw that week and recreate it it can be beauty, a recipe, fitness-related or pretty much just about anything! It gives us an excuse to try something new. We have a linky below where you can join in too wed love to have you! Try it next week what inspires you on Pinterest? Try it! Post about it and let us know how it went!
