Watermark on any background!

I am pretty sure all the graphic-noobs out there, just like me, had some trouble when it came to watermarking images, for example an image you want to insert into your visual basic project, a blog header with the domain inside the image... stuff like that! And I always came across one big problem when using paint, and I know for most people its common sense and I know most people simply use another program to automatically place the watermark on any background but I have seen SO MANY videos/websites where the watermark looked like this and is barely visible:

There are even more and a lot worse examples, sometimes the image doesn't allow you to simply go for red/white/black text or something. I've seen MANY websites with cheap barely-visible watermarks and I want to give you the easiest solution to fix this using paint. Once again, this is common sense, but sometimes you need a thread like this to kick you into the right direction and realize how easy it is to fix something like this without going online and searching for an image-editing program or site.

Here is the process of fixing this "issue":




1. Add your text as usual, don't be scared if its not visible at some places at first:

2. Add another layer of the same text, but with another color (I prefer white/black - you might want to play around with the font and color to increase the quality of this effect):

3. Push the second text above the first one, but add a small "3d-effect" by moving it just a few pixels to the side:

4. You are done and your watermark will now be a lot more noticeable! :)

That's it, and ONCE AGAIN, this is common sense and very easy and not supposed to look super-professional. But I am pretty sure some beginners will be thankful for this since you don't need Photoshop or any other software to do this only MS Paint, nothing else. :) Thanks for reading!
