Add a logo to an im­age

“A use­ful time­saver for on­line shop own­ers – don’t pho­to­graph stock hun­dreds of times, cheat!”

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - CONTENTS - Your guide Ian Even­den says…

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.
