Convert your Logo into a Watermark for your Picfair Plus Store

Stores and Plus

18 February 2019

Posted by Jon Davatz Photography


If you have a Picfair Plus Store, you can now add a custom watermark! This short tutorial explains how I converted my custom logo into a watermark and added it to my Store with a few easy steps, using the FREE image editor, Infranview (download it here).


Step 1: First, have your logo ready and open it in Infranview.

Step 2: Convert your image into a grayscale image by pressing Ctrl+G or following the path below.

Step 3: You probably want to reduce the strength of the image and fade it away a bit, for it not to be too strong and distracting. It should mimic the original watermark Picfair uses as standard. Press Shift+G to fade it as you wish by moving the sliders, especially the Gamma Correction slider as desired.

Step 4: Save the image to your local drive and add any transparency you may like to add. Note, you will have to save it as a PNG file to achieve the transparency of the white areas. Press Ctrl+S to save your logo and select the PNG format.

A pop-up window will appear where you can save it with a transparent background.

Step 5: Click anywhere on the background to select the colour that shall be used for transparency.

Step 6: Once you have saved your file, you can then go ahead and upload it to your Picfair Plus Store. You may need to repeat or adjust the opacity (gamma correction) until you get the results you are looking for.

Once you update your Store, it may take a short while for the changes to take effect and for your images to appear with your new watermark.

I hope this helps you get your personalised watermark up and running fast!
