Watermark

I'm beginner in Photoshop.
I use Adobe Photoshop 5.
My question is how to convert an ordinary image into watermark. In this case, I want to convert my own image to
watermark format, so I can make it as a background of my
homepage.

That's all for now...
Thank for your attention and hope for the answer!!!

Regards

Daniel

Still can't convert to watermark.
Okay, this is what I did:
Choose from menu pulldown: Layer-New-Adjustment Layer
There's box like this:
Name:.........
Type :.........
Opacity:......  Mode:......
I adjusted Opacity: 20%, like you suggested.
And then from Layer pulldown, I chose flatten image.
But nothing's change...
So, please explain it more clearly...
Remember, I'm just beginner
:-D

Well, the effect that you want.  It's just simply a faded out "watermark" type image to go into the background of a web page, correct?

If so, then the only other thing that I can say, is to make sure that the image is in a floating layer, not the background.  I'm assuming that since the opacity was adjustable, it was.  Did you notice the image fade as you adjusted the opacity?

Assuming its on a white background, another method would be to simply adjust the brightness and wash out the image.

Hope that helps.

What do you mean by "make sure that the image is in floating layer"?

Commented:
well, thats why one of the steps was to copy nd paste the image.  When you paste an image in Photoshop 4, the default is to paste it into a layer sitting above whatever layer you are currently on.  You need to be in a layer other then the background layer for the transparency to work.
