what is the watermark plugin called?


Recommended Posts

It's called PDNWatermark, but it doesn't work with the latest version of paint.net.

 

Elsewhere on the forum I wrote this in order to help someone place a watermark copyright © symbol on an image - this will work for any text based watermark.

 

 

My simple method:

Create a new layer :AddNewLayer:
Select Text Tool :TextTool:
Type in your text (I use grey primary color like #878787) and then....
Hold down the ALT key and type in 0169
(When you release the ALT key the © symbol appears :!: )
Lower the layers opacity (around 50 to 60 looks about right) so that it looks like a watermark
Merge the layer down & save
Hope this helps!

 

 

If you want to use an image as a watermark, use this technique

 

 

Easy watermark:

1. Create a new layer above your image :AddNewLayer:

2. Draw or type anything you want on the new layer. If you want to import an image onto the new layer, you can do that too.

3. Press F4 and adjust the opacity slider to make the new layer partially transparent.

4. Use Save As... to make a copy. Save it with the *.pdn extension if you wish to preserve the layer structure.

5. Now use Save As... again to save your image in the format you desire. Flatten the image if prompted.

If you overwrite the original image you can still edit the watermark by changing the *.pdn file ;). To be safe - I'd leave the original intact (just in case!)

Seerose, some (very few) fonts can not display © when pressing ALT+0169.

Doesn't work for me either!

My laptop doesn't have a separate numbers pad and neither Alt, AltGr, Shift nor Ctrl seem to work? :(

I'll just keep randomly pushing buttons till something happens! :D

 

© There is a built in windows tool called 'character map'. Type that into search, select©, then copy...use the text tool in Pdn then go to edit/paste and the © appears!

Not very elegant. :/

Red you do not need to do all the combinations just copy and paste it.  :P

I can't see a num lock key on my laptop keyboard
I do have a 'real' USB keyboard if needed but I've set up a short cut to Character map, which seems to work. I should have recommended this too  http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=10684
