Taking measurements

Image size

The first thing you have to jot down is the size you use for your web photos. When I say size, I mean pixel dimensions – the maximum width of landscape photos, and the maximum height of portrait photos. For most people, those two numbers are the same, but some of you won’t want your portrait photos to be as deep as your landscape photos, or whatever. This is stuff you have to figure out for yourself. If you are having trouble deciding, comment below so we can discuss.

The default sizes I’ve chosen for the action are 720 pixels in both directions, but your requirements will be different. We’ll be changing the action to suit your needs shortly.

Written down your web images’ width and height in pixels? Excellent.

Draw a marquee around your watermark. Make it as accurate as you can, but don’t sweat if you’re out by a pixel or two:


Then look at your Info Panel, and write down the dimensions of the watermark on your piece of paper:
