How to Add a Watermark
When you want to show your property pictures on portals or your company website, you may want to establish your ownership on those pictures. The easiest way to protect them is to watermark them. A watermarked picture displays the company logo on the picture without annoying the viewer.
Step 1: Create the Watermark
- Open your company logo in Photoshop, preferably a black & white logo to easily blend in with the property pictures.
- Use Invert Color (Image > Adjustments > Invert) to change the color of your logo from black to white. Having the watermark logo in transparent white yields a good result. You can accomplish this with any technique you like to use, as long as the end result is the same.
- Once you have your logo in white, experiment with a look that suits your logo. For example, in this case we have 40% opacity and a slight drop shadow.
- Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow will give it a slight shadow making it stand-out
- Try placing the logo on top of property pictures to see how it looks. Once you are happy with it, save it as a .PNG image and upload it into Masterkey.
Step 2: Upload it on Masterkey
- Select the Module System Admin and Select Parameter Zone > Watermarks.
- Click on Watermarks and you will find three options.
- Default Watermark - this Watermark is applied on all images entered on Masterkey and will reflect on Unit Cards, Web Portals and the Company Website.
- Sold Watermark - this Watermark will be applied to all Sold Units.
- Leased Watermark - this Watermark will be applied to all Leased Units.
- Click Browse and select the watermark and click Save, click on Preview to view the Watermark.
- The Watermark will now show up on all external Portals, Company Website and Unit Cards.
