Select Drag Tool “Cursor Icon” or use its shortcut key by clicking “V” on your keyboard, then select image2 and drag it into image1. After done, you can find your logo – image2 on image1: image2 will be showed as default “layer1” layer and image1 will be demonstrated as “background layer” layer.
Third Step of PhotoShop Watermark Is Modifying The Watermark Logo.
Select layer1, double click image2, adjust the Opacity and Fill to the extent you like best, this can help you make the logo light-colored.
Also you can rotate the watermark to an arbitrary angle, by selecting image2, hitting [Image], [Image Rotation], [Arbitrary] and inputting the angle into the input box.
