How to add WaterMark on dA by bunnydesuuu How to add WaterMark on dA by bunnydesuuu
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.

What is a watermark, though?

A logo on your art so people can't steal it

Im trying to make some money by selling my artwork as a digital copy(premium content). But eventho i checked the "add watermark", there's still no watermark on my artwork. I do have my own logo as my watermark at the bottom corner of my artwork but the reason i wanted dA's watermark is because people can easily download my artwork without purchasing it (right clicking and save image). Why doesn't the watermark show on my artwork? How big should my artwork be? I've tried everything. The current size is 1024px. Please help

p.s Im not desperate for money, im 16 years old and im trying to get money on my own to buy stuff i need without constantly asking my parents.
I'll also donate half the money of each purchase to charity (most likely foundations regarding saving our Earth)

p.p.s Am i doing this wrong? Can i not sell digital prints on dA?

Sorry, I am unsure as to why the option did not appear to you. It might work if you change your file type to jpeg or jpg!

If not, I recommend you enlarging your watermark and placing it (with light opacity) over your artwork just like how the dA watermark would look like. The premium content option (which you enabled) allows you to attach the original, non-watermarked copy should someone purchase it, so watermarking the displayed picture is ok. 


On a side note, as another fellow teenager, I advise you not to expect too much from the premium content option on dA. Not many people are active on dA, and many who do are also teenagers (if not younger :(( ) who do not have/cannot afford simply buying things from the premium content as they do not have the points or money. I advise you either open up commissions and draw for others, or simply just draw for leisure and find other means to earn money to ease the monetary burdens of your parents.

Nevermind. I already figured out how this works. Only prints for sale have watermarks on the sample pic? Or am i wrong? Ive listed my artwork for sale as prints anyways so cheers.

What if I submit my artwork for printing option (without my watermark, only my signature is there, and my own little logo) and I want DA watermark on preview option, but it doesn't show there. I have managed to upload only one drawing for print which got that DA preview watermark. This kind of watermark option shows in the section where you can edit your print options (it says there that it is visible only on preview). I'm not sure if this option showed on pic above, when you upload your artwork and click "Add watermark" is that same option - namely, if I click that, will my prints have DA watermark? Once I have clicked it and it was visible in edit section on prints where you can adjust your drawing. To whom to turn to in order to solve this problem? Thank you in advance! :)

Why does the Watermark Option only appear for some of my artwork. Like, some work I submit it's visible and then others I submit, it's nowhere to be seen!

it depends on the size of the artwork you submit. if it's big enough to fit the watermark then the option will appear, if not it won't

It may also depend on the type of file you submit eg. jpeg, png etc

you should make your own watermark and watermark it yourself then. It's not that hard :XD:

signing your name (like you've been doing) is already a form of "watermark" actually, so you are actually fine just like that :)

what size does the picture have to be in order to watermark it?
Reply
:iconbunnydesuuu:
bunnydesuuu Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2016  Student Traditional Artist
the water mark is quite big, so i think around 300px by 300px at least would be best
