    Step 3

    Now it’s time to decide where you’d like your watermark placed and what style you’d like your watermark to have. The preview windows make it easy to see what your photo will look like before saving your changes.

    Select whether you’d like to have your watermark placed in the center of your photo, tiled or in a corner.

    Play around with the Size, Opacity and Emboss features until you have the watermark to your liking.

    Step 4

    Save your photo and you’re done!

    Note: Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 may have remembered your “save as” format settings from when you saved your watermark as a PNG, so you might need to change the file format back to JPEG (or whichever format you’d like your photo saved as) before saving your photo.
