Add a logo to an image
“A useful timesaver for online shop owners – don’t photograph stock hundreds of times, cheat!”
Anyone running a small business with an online shop front is going to need to take photos of their stock, and this can be a time-consuming process.
If your business relies on printing, you can save time by photographing blank products, then compositing a logo or pattern on to them using image editing software. This can be especially useful if you’re printing to order, since it means you don’t need to print off one copy of everything you intend to sell.
Check out a range of selling sites, however, and you’ll soon see that the way many logos and graphics are superimposed on T-shirts and the like looks highly unrealistic. There are ways of making the graphic follow the folds of the shirt, however, as we will see. We’re going to use Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 for this, a free trial of which can be downloaded from https://adobe.ly/2Eh3YNv.
