How to Create and Add Watermark in Google Docs?
There isn’t any option available in Google Docs for adding a watermark yet. However, you can go about using a technique that will help you in adding the watermark, which will make your document more reliable. For this, you just have to follow some simple steps mentioned below in this article.
Firstly, you will need to sort out the Google Document that you want to add watermark on. Once you have opened the required Google Doc, then click on “Insert” and find the option of “Drawing”. Click on “Drawing” to access the option off “+ New” for creating the watermark.
Going through these options will open up a drawing box where you can customize the watermark that you want to add to the document. Click on the “T” option for adding the text box. Edit the text box using the tools given in the tool bar, which can be accessed by clicking on the three horizontal dots given in the right end of the tool bar in the drawing box.
Make sure to edit the watermark in the form of a washed text so that it looks like a watermark.
Once you finished creating the watermark, then click on “Save and Close” and the watermark image will be inserted in the document.
Then click on the image and access the edit image options in the bottom of the image by clicking on the three vertical dots. There, you will find the option of placing the image in the dropdown option of “Text Wrapping”. Select the option of “behind text” or “in-front-of text” to adjust the placement of the watermark in the document.
That’s it, you will see the watermark placed in Google document in the form of an image behind or in-front-of text based on your chosen option. You can access these option below the image as well.
Furthermore, you can do that with the image too. If you want to add an image as a watermark, make sure to edit the image as a washed image before uploading the image to the document so that it looks like a watermark and then edit the image placement as “behind text”.
