How to make a basic watermark in Photoshop


Notice: Undefined variable: read_more in /home/scottp12/public_html/wp-content/themes/traction/archive.php on line 34

Watermarks are sometimes very annoying especially if large and so distracting that it draws the view away never to return. I’ll help you make a watermark basic enough to not discourage your audience yet ugly enough to stop takers. If you are using GIMP checkout the tutorial here: scottphotographics.com/how-to-make-a-simple-watermark-in-gimp!

The Red Centre – Outback, Northern Territory, Australia


Notice: Undefined variable: read_more in /home/scottp12/public_html/wp-content/themes/traction/archive.php on line 34

At the end of last month I flew to Alice Springs and explored the surroundings of Central Australia over an extended weekend. It was an unbelievable trip and the experience of almost pure Outback was so unfamiliar/unique to me that I found it was amazing how Australia offers such a dynamic range of landscapes and culture from cities to the vast outback. I documented my trip visually as you’ll see as you scroll down – although some of these images are very revealing of Central Australia it is still nothing compared to being there, however with the use of panoramic photographs I hope it offers a better representation of the broad spacious lands that I experienced.

Digital Blending – Dynamic Range – GIMP


Notice: Undefined variable: read_more in /home/scottp12/public_html/wp-content/themes/traction/archive.php on line 34

When wanting to combine two or more photographs for a higher dynamic range (HDR) or correcting an overexposed photograph, I mostly use programs like Photomatix, however it is sometimes too difficult or frustrating fiddling with the settings for minutes getting nowhere. So, there is an easier way and in certain cases much better than an HDR especially if you want to avoid those really surreal photographs – Digital Blending is the way to go, you can be much more selective with your increases/decreases in dynamic range and get more realistic results.

Kane Gledhill

Kane’s Autobiography (from Flickr profile):

My name is Kane Gledhill, I am 27 years old.

I live in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

I’ve been a keen photographer for over 15 years; I picked up my first SLR camera when I was still in school, back when I lived in New Zealand. It was a Vivitar v2000 and it cost me $300.00 cash! I’ve probably put 100’s of rolls of film through this little gem, I’d never sell.
