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.

check the size of your image or the category you submit it to!
it won't appear if it's too small and also it doesn't allow you to put in for some categories

you have to upload either jpeg/jpg or png or something along that line. psd doesn't work if you want to get a watermark!!
I usually concert to png when i use photoshop and want to post on dA, if that helps :)

if it doesn't then it might be your category to which you submit your picture to or your picture size

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?
Reply
:iconbrightenyoursmile:
BrightenYourSmile Featured By Owner May 17, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
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.
Reply
:iconbrightenyoursmile:
BrightenYourSmile Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
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

:iconbrightenyoursmile:
BrightenYourSmile Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
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
