Photo Resizing & Watermarking

Bloggers who are photographers know the benefit of Photoshop. It's a pricey program, but it can work miracles. But all those miracles can make your images pretty big.

Some time ago, I was introduced to a WONDERFUL PS action called BlogStomp. It's inexpensive and perfectly sizes your images. It also watermarks your image and sets the width. On this site, I use a 700 pixel width (watermark printed on image) and on my photoblog, I size my images to be 800 pixels with a white border (watermark printed below image). Below is an example of both!
If you have Photoshop and want a solution for resizing and watermarking images that takes TWO seconds, you've GOT to check out BlogStomp. You won't be disappointed!

I'm sharing this over at Works for Me Wednesday. I think it will work for you, too!

This is a great idea! I use picnik to edit and am constantly getting the message "this file is too big" and I tell it to back off because I like my pics big.
But I think mine are 600 pixels wide b/c I have a 3 column blog. Hmmm. Will have to look.
Great idea and tip! Thanks!
*PS- hope to meet you at Blissdom!
