A special Pixelmator watermarking action helps to make it a one-step Automator workflow. Video Transcript: What a lot of people like to do before sharing a photo online is to place a watermark on it. So you have a photo like this and I just want to imprint my name on it before I share it. You can do that, of course, using any image editing app. You can do it in Preview using Markup and to put some text over it. You can even do Markup in Photos and put text over it. But what if I want to put a logo or graphic of some sort.

You do have to create a workflow. We want to create a fairly large document because photos have a lot of pixels in them. We want to create something, maybe, by here. Here we go. You can adjust the text as you need. Choose a cool font if you want. Just to show that we can actually do something a little bit more than just text because you can just do that in Markup.

So I can change the color here to something like that. Now what you want to do is we want to make it semitransparent. Just hit the Delete key there. The one with the text on it.

I can change it to make it semitransparent. Make it like sixty percent. I can also change its color to something. We can do this here too. We can make this semitransparent.

We just saved it to the Desktop. We can see there it is on the Desktop. I want it to receive an image file in the Finder. Now we want to drag things in here. You can see the Pixelmator logo there. I can drag that in. Add it. I want to Save it, Command S. So you can pretend I just dragged that out of the Photos app.

I can hit More and I can see Watermark 1 is now one of these options. Now look what happens when I click it. It appears there. Now I may want to do some adjustments from here. I may want to make it, you know, brighter, more dimmer, or something like that because this may be too much or too little. I may want to trim some off the edges. I might have a lot of border around there. I may want it to be more in the bottom right hand corner or maybe not. I can go and drag and drop that into say Facebook or some other place where I want to put this logo there.

As another example here I can go into Photos and I can say, oh I want to share this image. I drag and drop it in here. Then I Quit Photos. I can hit Watermark and then the watermark will appear there. So I can easily watermark these photos here.

I can upload them. I can leave them in my Watermarking folder maybe for future reference.
