Watermark with AD
« on: August 05, 2019, 12:29:11 PM »
A way to create a watermark on a case-by-case basis with AD. It is a little longer than a brush and is to be done for each photo.

1. Place the photo.
2. Type the text.
3. Duplicate the photo.
4. In layers, mount the top photo in the text thumbnail. The text disappears.
5. In the layers, select the text and apply a "3D" fx to it.
6. With the text selected, tick "Lock children" in the context bar.

If the text is moved, it takes the color of what is below it.
If the lower photo is deleted, there is still the watermark that can be moved and keeps the background of where it is (on its photo).

On the resulting page, click on the red button to download the video.
