White Wolf asked how to do watermarks from a picture, a business card, a icon/sticker  or from a free picture found on Internet without any Copyright.

Then he sent me 2 images and asked if I could watermark them. So here's how I did it on his Wolf head photos.. I also did his other watermark with his second photo and gave it all to him..  Can't wait to see them in his photos.

Here is a watermark I had made for him with the empty layer and the Photo Studio Pro app available on Google Play Store. I made a article about makink a Watermark from scratch here :

This is the result.

Watermark made for White Wolf

By scanning your business card logo, drawing, or taking a photo of an object that you think represents you and following these guidelines, you can watermark your photos. Do not take images from the Internet unless they are offered for free and have no copyright. 

I made you an empty layer that you can download by clicking on the following link (the layer is  big, i will try to replace it soon 😞

You can use it in the Samsung editor and write the desired text in it.

My biggest problem for writing this post is that I couldn't find any FREE program available on PC and Android so that you can work on your photos whether you are on your tablet or on your computer. White Wolf couldn't install it on his phone...

Krita  is now available on Google Play Store in Beta version? (early access) and allows me to make this post. Krita is also available for free on PC here:    https://krita.org/

So I'm going to put screenshots and then I'll comment afterwards.

  • First of all, you have to select with the magic wand (on the left of the screen) what you don't want to keep in the Image. In this case, I want to remove the black around Wolf's head.
  • If you did not select everything and/or if you also had other things that you do not want, by pressing the SHIFT key, it adds the places where you click

  • Here is what you will get, the Wolf's head has been pasted on your new layer
  • Now you have to delete the layer called "Background" to keep only the new layer with your Wolf's head that was copied there.

  • We have reached the end point. 
  • Click File
  • Then click on EXPORT
  • I don't know why but I couldn't save the file with the .PNG extension as recommended. If I click on all extensions, .PNG is in the list of supported file extensions..
  • So I had to save with .WEBP extension and it works when I want to add the webp image in Samsung editor as a sticker.
  • By closing the application, you will also have to save the file with the Krita extension and this is normal except that the Samsung editor will only show you a question mark or exclamation mark since it will not take into account load this extension.

The SAVE your work in .webp first and when you close the application it will be ask if you want to save the file in psd or Krita extension...Say YES because sometimes we need to work again on the file or we want to make it better.

That should be all, if you see any errors please let me know.

Don't be afraid to put pictures on this post showing you watermarks made with my method.

This is the result of the Watermark i made for him :
