A note about the size of the images you put on your blog/other places online: I usually resize my photos to 700px wide (sometimes I go a bit wider, but it depends on the photo). That makes it fairly big on screen but it's not big enough to be of printable quality, meaning that it's less likely that someone will steal my images and use them in print without my permission.
The watermark is automatically placed in the centre of the image but that's not always the best placement, so I usually move it (left arrow). And then I also change the opacity (right arrow) to somewhere around 50% - that's a bit more subtle than 100%. But it also depends on the background. On darker backgrounds the watermark can be at 30% opacity sometimes.
Then I save the image and I'm all done. Adding the watermark only takes an extra couple of seconds and it's well worth it! And these days it's a habit for me, I don't even have to think about it.
In the next post I'll show you how to make the watermark .png file.
