Watermarking Photos With Automator and Pixelmator

If you want to watermark your photos before sharing them using a logo or other graphic, you can build a semi-transparent image in Pixelmator and then use an Automator Quick Action to easily apply that watermark to any image file. A special Pixelmator watermarking action helps to make it a one-step Automator workflow.

    As always great info. Always impressed with your command of topics. Do you have a basic book or online course for automator?

    Oakdale: No, no course on that, sorry. Automator is too nebulous of a topic. Using it is very different depending if you have no, little or a lot of programming experience. Plus it is very dependent on what software you have installed and what type of work you do.

    Can i use this technique to watermark all my photos before loading onto google photos for storage. If so, what is the easiest way to accomplish this task. \?

    Walt: I wouldn’t do that. The idea is to watermark your photos before sharing them or otherwise sending them out into the world. When you are storing them in your own private library, you want the original images, not the watermarked ones.

    Thank you for the videos! Any tips? I seem to be stuck. I am unable to drag the “pixelmator watermark images” file into Automator. I’ve tried all the trouble shooting tips I could find and other items will drag into Automator. I bought pixelmator this past week, running Mojave, and all updates are current. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Ella: What did you export the Pixelmator file as? What format?
