How to create a watermark in PicMonkey

  1. Use any combination of text or graphics on your canvas to make your watermark. You can also experiment with the Draw tool for an artistic touch.

  2. Convert the color background of your canvas to a layer.

  3. Delete the color layer so that you have a transparent background.

  4. Your watermark will remain in Hub until you need to use it.

  5. If you download your watermark, make sure to do so as a PNG file so that it keeps its transparent background.
