You can create watermarks in Revu simply by adding a custom stamp and then flattening that stamp. Flattening a stamp, or any other markup, ensures that the item is integrated into the PDF content layer. This makes the stamp unalterable and usable as a watermark for your documents.
Creating and adding a watermark
Adding an image for use as a watermark:
- Go to Tools > Stamp > Create Stamp.
- Set the Opacity to 30% and leave the Template field as Blank (none). If you want text or dates in your stamp, you can select these options under the Template field.
- Click OK. The stamp is created and opens in a new Revu tab.
- In the new stamp tab, select Image from the toolbar and choose a desired image from the file explorer window.
- Click inside the stamp outline to set the image. Resize and orient the stamp if necessary by clicking and dragging the box handles.
- Once your stamp is formatted to your liking, save the stamp by going to Revu > Save (Ctrl + S).
Flattening your stamp for use as a watermark:
- Go to Tools > Stamp . Select your newly created stamp from the displayed list.
- Click anywhere on the document to place your stamp.
If you want to apply a watermark to multiples documents, see Batch Apply Stamp.
- Drag your stamp to a desired location on the document. You can also adjust your stamp’s opacity and other settings from the dynamic properties toolbar.
- With your stamp selected, go to Batch > Flatten Markups .
- Under Flatten, select Currently Selected Markups and uncheck Allow Markup Recovery (Unflatten).
- Click Flatten.
Your watermark has now been created and can no longer be edited.
