How To Add a Watermark

Adding a watermark is a great way to protect your image from others copying, it is also a great way to promote yourself to others by providing your contact information on the actual image. CorelPHOTO-PAINT makes it very easy.

1. Open the Image

There are a couple of ways to open the image. From the Welcome Screen, select Get Started and then click on the button to Open Document, alternatively, from File > Open. Once the image is open you will want to import the image that you will be using for the watermark. Typically this image should be a png with a transparent background. To import the watermark image, from File > Import. Position the watermark where you wish, typically bottom right corner.

2. Edit the Watermark

With the watermark object selected, you have the ability to reposition and resize. Once you have the size and position, you can adjust the opacity. To do this, if the Object Manager is not open goto Windows > Dockers > Object Manager. In here make sure that the watermark object is selected and at the top of the docker, to the right of the Merge mode dropdown is the Opacity slider. Slide this to the left to reduce the opacity. I have set it to 40.

3. Next Steps

Now that the watermark has been added, you can save the file out or continuing to edit your image. If you save the file, you will get a message that reads Objects will be merged with the background in exported file. Click OK to this.
