View Full Version : Watermark Background

These are very popular currently - a very light grey logo printed at an angle as a continuous background to look like a watermark.

As far as I know there is no dedicated function for this in BV so here's how I do it.

Open MS Excel or your favourite spreadsheet. Type the words that you want to be watermarked. Format the font to be the correct size and font type, and choose a light grey for the font format colour.

Format the orientation of the cell to be 45 degrees. (in Excel - Format/Cells.../Alignment) Hit 'print screen' on your keyboard and then paste in to your favourite imaging software. You now have a jpg of your screen with the watermark in the middle. Crop it, save it as a jpg and then choose the jpg as background in BV.
