           Many sites offer fonts for everyone to use some of them are free and others not, and my favorite free font site is dafont.com 
Dafont.com is a great resource for many, many fonts, and you can easily download and use any font. 
Some fonts come as shapes which is pretty useful for graphic designers or crafty people or for photographers to use into their watermarks.
Here's a tutorial of how to download and install fonts into Photoshop.

:bulletpink: Step 1 : 
Go to dafont.com



:bulletpink: Step 2 :
find the desired font and click on " Download " 



:bulletpink: Step 3 : 
Extract Zip file 



:bulletpink: Step 4 :
Open extracted folder and right click on the font file, then click on " install" 



:bulletpink: step 5 :
Open Photoshop and choose ( T ) Text tool, and into your fonts list you'll find the font you installed 



You're Done 


- When you open Dafont.com 
you will find that they already put down a " How to install a font? "


- If you have any suggestions for future lessons please let us know !

            Since we're publishing our art everywhere on web and can't control who can use it, and no one like to see his/her photo being claimed as others work. 
Watermark or copyrights help a little to prevent others from stealing your efforts, or at least make it difficult for them to erase your name. 
I found many ways to add a watermark and I'll list few for you to try them out !

Method 1 : Text tool Watermark in Photoshop 
Method 2 : Brush Watermark in Photoshop
Method 3 :  Plug-in Watermark in Photoshop
 



DETAILS 

Method 1 : Text Tool 

Step 1 : 
Choose Text Tool ( T ) 



Step 2 : 
Pick your favorite font 
and start typing your watermark 





Step 3 :
 You can re-position and re-size your mark by the Move tool 



Step 4 :
 Decrease Opacity to make a transparent watermark




Method 2 : Brush Watermark

 
Step 1 : 
Open Photoshop then go to " File > New " 



Step 2 : 
Select the below setting for your new project then click "OK": 
Width: 1000 Pixels
Height: 1000 Pixels
Res : 300 Pixel/Inch
Background : Transparent



Step 3 :
With text tool ( T ) and after choosing your font write down your text



For adding another text below or somewhere first click on the check mark [✓]



Then while you still using the text tool click where you want to type another text.



after you're done click on the check mark again [✓]

Step 4 : 
Choose the crop tool 



Select your text 



Then click the check mark [✓] or press " Enter " on keyboard 



Step 5 : 
Go to " Edit > Define Brush Preset "



Then name your watermark and click OK 



Now your Bush is ready to use !

Step 6 : 
Open your image then click on brush tool

 

Right click anywhere on your photo and go down to the end of your brushes you will find your new brush, click on 



Change opacity by the slider above the image



Or by the Opacity slider above layers, while you're selecting the watermark layer.


And you can change the color of the watermark 



resize your brush and click on the image where you want your watermark to be 




Method 3 : Watermark Plug-in 


I recently found a helpful watermark plug-in from Russell Brown. [ Download Link ] 
ٍScroll down into Russell Brown site you'll find a link of tutorial video beside " Adobe Watermark Panel 2.2.2 "
I still didn't use it but it's easy, download it and and start discovering. :love: BTW it's FREE la in love
