I get frequent questions about how I add my logo to the images, so I thought I’d explain it in a blog post. Here it is …
My log is added as a layer set to ‘Screen’ blending mode, with a drop shadow to actually make it appear again.
When I have a cluttered background, I change the blending mode to ‘Normal’, and remove the drop shadow.
If the background is too cluttered, I add another layer, sized to about the same height as my log, but with the color as a gradient.
That’s it. Simplicity itself.
But here’s the sad news. I do this manually for every image I post on my blogs or on Facebook. I haven’t figured out yet how to automate it for images of varying sizes. So if anyone knows how to do that precisely, I’d love to hear. Thanks!
