Another contest! Free Custom Watermarking Action!

CLOSED! Winners announced above. Thank you so much for entering!!!

I had so much fun with my blog design contest I decided to have another one, this time with an action prize. Just paste my button below on your blog (or if you are not a fan of buttons, a post about my site counts!), comment here and link your blog, and in a day or two I will randomly select 1-2 comments and you will get a custom CoffeeShop Watermarking/Cropping action!

When I select the winner(s) I will post them here. Then I will design an action for Photoshop or Photoshop Elements that will crop your images to web-size, sharpen, and apply your watermark. I can even add an optional frame or rounded corner version! You just send me your watermark and tell me where you want it placed (it will be adjustable at the end) and soon you will be saving time posting on the web. I designed a watermark action for Julie (you can see it on her newest posted images) and I also was lucky enough to design her blog.

I might have to have another blog design contest soon. Blog design is so much fun and I am a bit addicted! Here is the last winner, Jen's blog. She was so sweet and I really enjoyed working with her. And her kids are so cute!

Make sure you link your site in your comment. And if you already have my button on your blog, that counts!!!

You're awesome!! I would love this!

I have your button on my blog under my list of favorite photography places!! I LOVE your actions and use them often. A watermark would be awesome! Right now I have to individually make one for each and every photo and it takes forever b/c I don't know what I'm doing. This would really cut down on my work time! Thank you so so so so much for the chance to win this awesome prize! I am definitely keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed for this one! God Bless and thanks for all that you share w/ the photography community!!


Cate July 24, 2009 at 9:51 AM  

I love your actions so much! I can't afford to buy Photoshop yet, so I'm so so grateful that you do free actions for Photoshop elements! I've linked your button to my photography blog,

Amber July 24, 2009 at 10:18 AM  

My Blog has your blinkie in the sidebar!

Rita July 24, 2009 at 10:21 AM  

Nicole, this type of action is one of those things that needs custom designing for each type of watermark, so that is why I haven't posted a free version on my blog. I have started custom-designing them for people because I have had so many people ask about them (and I don't have the time to make one for everyone unfortunately!), so just email me at for information! Rita

Amanda Smith July 24, 2009 at 10:22 AM

I get so tired of constantly opening, closing, open, close, etc. I love LOVE LOVE (if I could make text bigger I would) your blog and actions. It has made my life so much easeier! ! !

Hi Rita.....was the message on your Flickr group for me??? :) I just recently came across your blog and love all the free actions you have for PSE. I finally upgraded my very ancient PSE to PSE7 just so I would be able to use them! I have added your button so others may take advantage of your generosity if they so desire. I also enjoyed your tutorial on customizing brushes....I have had a lot of fun with that. I'm looking forward to adding more photos to your Coffeeshop Action Flickr group. Thanks again for sharing your many talents!

I don't have a blog but I sure love all the help you give. Maybe one of these days I will get brave and start a blog. Even though I am 70, I love learning things and especially love all the items you offer that make my scrapping so much easier.

Thanks so much, sorry I can't post your blinkie to enter your contest.

Lorraine July 24, 2009 at 6:39 PM  

I don't have a blog and don't have a clue on how to create one...but if I did, I would promote you big time. This action is awesome. I think it would be great to use in store galleries when posting my layouts. Will you be offering the action for sale?
