How to add WaterMark on dA by BrightenYourSmile How to add WaterMark on dA by BrightenYourSmile
Tutorial in case some don't know :)

DO TAKE NOTE:
FAQ #332: Does deviantART have a feature that will automatically watermark my deviations?
"This option will be presented to you only if you change the Display Options field to one of the smaller resolutions available in the submission/editing process, allowing you to add a watermark or not.


Images which are kept at 'original size' will not be processed by us and will not present the option of automatic watermarking on your images."

Also, if you submit your image under certain categories, or your image type (jpeg, png etc) is different from the usual, the watermark option will not appear.

Is there any way to add a watermark to a deviation in your Sta.sh, or can you only watermark it if you upload it?

I don't think you can add it in your sta.sh until you upload it (but you can always upload it, save it then delete it i guess)

how big does the file use to be in order to use a watermark? it usually doesn't appear even though the file type is in png.

not sure about this but on the average probably 300by300 or more
depends on which category you submit it to too!

I would think that it would work, though i'm not sure. It doesn't work for small deviantID and icons.

Is there a way to change the size of the watermark? I'm trying to upload an image, and when I choose one of their sizes so that I can add a watermark, it's ridiculously large.. can I scale down the size of the watermark? orz

nope as far as I know you can't change it's size. if you don't like big watermarks then you shouldn't use dA's default watermark but make your own instead :)

Can anyone tell me, if I add a watermark using DA, does it allow me to name my watermark? I'm new to this and want to fully understand how to protect my work before I share it online.

check your file's type and size! :) if it's not the usual file type and/or the size is too small the watermark option will not appear

try changing the resolution of your image to a larger one! I think that might work

It's still there, like BrightenYourSmile said above, you need to change the resolution of your art.

Thank you for this, BrightenYourSmile! I was trying to figure out how to do this, and you showed me the way!!

you can add it with your own art software instead of using deviantart's watermark! not sure if dA's water can be added for your case though

What about stories, how come there isn;t a copyright/watermark for them. Not all of us do fan fictionals.

if you mean putting up your own watermark then as far as I know you can't do in on dA itself but rather do it on your own art software
