Watermark templates[edit]

Here I have collected a few of the templates for the watermarks I have removed from any watermarked images.

To use them, drop them on the watermarked image in Gimp or Photoshop and align them with the watermark. If you use the XCF or PSD file, then that's it. If you use the "divide" or "substract" layer versions, then you will need to set the layer blending mode of the that template image respectively. For templates where I have provided only a divide layer and the watermark appears brighter than the background in the watermarked image, do "invert colors" before and after using the template. For JPEG images you will most likely need to blur or clone over any remaining JPEG artifacts.
