Watermarking a picture means that it will be safe to put up online without anyone "stealing" your image; this is very useful for photographers, graphic designers and people in similar professions. In this tutorial I will show you the simple steps to make a watermark.
First of all make a new small project, for example 250px by 250px and make it have a transparent background.
Then make a new layer
now, make the background transparent
and create your water mark on the layer you've just made. It doesn't have to be fancy, I just wrote out the domain of this site with a brush.
now from Edit menu select Define Pattern (edit>define pattern)
and name it whatever you want
Now open the picture you want to add your watermark on in a new Photoshop document.
and from "Fill" option in layer's window, select Pattern for the upper layer you have
now select the water mark pattern, set the scale you want and finally click OK!
You may change the opacity of the pattern layer so that the watermark is less visible (I usually set it to around 30%)
