Photoshop Quick Tip: Turn Your Logo Into a Brush Preset


Are you one of those people who apply their logo or watermark to an image via Photoshop? If so, what method do you use? For years I would go through the menu, click “Place Image”, scroll through 100’s of images on my computer, select my watermark, and finally place it onto the image after resizing it. I didn’t realize how much time I wasted applying my watermark to images until a friend watching me asked what the hell I was doing. The method he showed me was SO much easier and literally saved me a few minutes each time. (Yeah I was stupid) So in case you do not already use this method, here is how you turn your logo or watermark into a brush preset.

  1. First you will need to open your logo in Photoshop, make sure it is in the transparent form. Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 10.51.03 AM
