Watermark not Smooth

Postby TAOGde » Sun Jul 27, 2014 6:59 pm

I try to setup my watermark for some exports.
i use an PNG file with tranparent background. so far so good but on the final image it looks horible (see Image)

on this way it is not a very professional look on the final image. any change to repair this?

This all depends on the PNG and watermark settings.
Create a support can and provide us the details, we can help to define the proper settings.

Copy that. I use Watermark in Aperture bevor and the same PNG-Grafik (transparent) looks "horible" in Capture One Pro.

Understood. But again, it depends.
Create a support case and provide the PNG. We'll be happy to take a look.

I have found that resizing the watermark too much caused this problem. Actually any resizing will cause a bit of degraded image, but the more you resize the worse it gets. Here are the contents of the watermarks folder on my hard drive. Each number at the end of the file denotes the pixel width.


I haven't used the larger ones. Once I got on a roll making different sizes, it was hard to stop. :lol:

Another important tip if you want the file to be placed correctly on different size images is to add in blank space to the watermark file. For instance, my watermark on the 200px image might only be 120 px square but has a buffer of 80px on the right and bottom of the image. With this set-up i can set the Capture One placement at 50 / -50 and it will be in the same place on each image.
