Nowadays it’s very common to find all kinds of watermarked images. You've probably wondered more than once about the meaning of putting the watermark on such images and how you could do it. Next, we are going to try to solve all your doubts and encourage you to start implementing its use in your publications.

What is the use of a watermark?

The watermark is basically like a signature that accredits the rights of the image to its author. It is a kind of "seal", logo or signature that is placed superimposed on an image with transparency and usually in the outermost areas. In this way it does not impede the correct visualization of the image.

Watermarks basically serve two functions. The first is to protect the copyright of the image. By including this signature, you prevent the image from being used illegally or at least if you do so without your authorization, your name will be recognized.  

On the other hand, the use of the watermark is very useful for community managers who manage the social networks of a brand because through it, they get followers to associate the brand with a simple glance.

Precisely for this use it’s very important that the watermark does not interrupt the image; that is, you must place it in a sector that doesn’t interrupt the image. The best and most common place is in the lower right corner. Get used to placing it in the same place every time, so that when all your images are together and that the feeling is of order and cleanliness.
