      Batch Watermarking
      If you have a whole folder you want Watermarked, proceed to the File Menu and
      choose Automate > Batch.
      In the resulting dialog is divided into four sections: Play, Source, Destination and Errors.
      In the Play section pull down "Action" and select the Action you just created.
      In the Source section, click the 'Choose' button and highlight the folder of files you want watermarked. (Hopefully you copied the folder, and will actually be watermarking copies of your files!)
      In the Destination section choose "Save and Close"
      If you wish to move the newly copied files to a new folder, click Choose... and find the folder.
      Are you ready? Click "OK" and sit back. Have coffee. When you get back, your files
      will be watermarked.

      Sharpening (the way I like to do it)
      In the Layer palette select the layer that has what you want to sharpen.
      1: With this new layer highlighted select Filter / Other / High Pass. Set the Radius between 2-10 depending on the size of the photo, and hit OK. The higher the resolution is the higher you can go.
      2: Zoom into your image to Actual Pixels level so you can better see what you're going to do next.
      3: Go back to the Layer Palette and select Hard Light from the left drop down.
      4: Now go to the Opacity Slider and select a level of sharpening that seems best to you.
      I like this method b/c it puts all the sharpening on its own layer and can easily be changed.

      this doesn't really have anything to do with photoshop itself par-say but it's VERY VERY helpful.

      Ask and ye shall receive. Sorry, I haven't done much with this since I started this thread. If you guys have questions, I will do my best to do research and figure it out. I am by no means a photoshop pro, there are people in this forum that put me to shame, but here's another one.
      Turning your Signature into a Brush
      -Step One: Grab a nice black felt pen and sign your name or your studio or what have you on a large piece of paper, and then scan your signature
      OR
      If you use a tablet, just open a new document (resolution 300 ppi), and press D to set your foreground black, get the brush tool B, and then choose a small, hard-edged brush and sign your name fairly large
      -Step Two: Go under Edit Menu and choose Define Brush Preset. This will bring up a Brush Name Dialog, where you can give your signature brush a name (How about "Signature"?) and click OK.
      You are done!!
      But let's put this to use.
      Step Three: Open your photo, and get your Brush tool (B), and Control-Click or Right-Click if you are a PC and click anywhere on the image. The Brush Picker will appear, and your signature brush will be the last brush on the list.
      Step Four: By default, the size of your brush will be the size it was when you created the preset, so you may have to adjust the diameter size.
      Step Five: Create a new layer, if you don't want to affect the original image, and click.
      Here is a quick and dirty example of this.

      Enjoy!

      i agree.
      would it be very difficult for you to set up your first post like the DIY FAQ in the MK4 forum? that way you can have tips listed in the first post and link it to the appropriate page..... just wondering.

      it's for exactly what it sounds like.
      sometimes when you take a shot or you're editing, things aren't as clear as you would like them to be. easiest way to describe it is with a picture. so here you are.
      this picture is SUPER sharpened to show how sharpening can make color shifts.

      here is the image again with proper sharpening but still exaggerated.

      Okay, and be real slow explaining....how do you get the "panned foliage" effect behind a vehicle when it wasn't in motion? I have a "babe on snowmobile with windblown hair" pic I'd like this effect on. Thx.

      That typically isn't done in photoshop, but usually done with an actual pan shot... You typically match the the shutter speed to the actual speed (mph) you are traveling and shoot the car/vehicle so that the vehicle is static and in focus, while the background is blurred,etc... Is that what you mean?? Or are you actually looking for an blurred motion look for photoshop??

      what i have always wondered about is how to drop your watermark into a photo so it appears the same relative size in every picture regardless of the images size itself. any thoughts?
