Adding your contact details as a transparent text is the best way to add watermark in your photos. Viewers can see your details and at the same time, your contact details are not blocking anything. In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to create transparent text in Photoshop.
This is going to be a short tutorial. We’re not going to use any adjustment layers but just layer styles.
Before we go ahead, I want to show you the after and before photos. Here’s a very beautiful photo of Praca do Comercio that is present in Lisbon, Portugal.

Let’s start the tutorial.
Step 1: Write the text
Grab the Text tool from the tool panel.
Change the font to the one you want to use. I am going to choose League Spartan (one of my favorite fonts 😀).
Write the text.
Step 2: Adjust the position of the text
Go to Edit > Free Transform or press Cmd + T / Ctrl + T to activate the Free Transform tool.
Drag and drop the text to your desired position. Press Return/Enter to deactivate the Free Transform tool.
Step 3: Make the text transparent in Photoshop
Go to Window > Layers to activate the layer panel.
Make the “Fill” 0%.
This will make the text transparent.
Step 4: Add some style using Layer Style
Click on the fx button that is present at the bottom of the layer panel. It’s the second icon from the left. Choose Bevel and Emboss.
Adjust the setting in the option. I am going to go with the below settings. You can tweak these settings. This will give an emboss like effect to the text.
Click on Outer Glow and adjust the settings. This will make your text glow.
Click on Drop shadow. This will add a shadow to the text.
And this is how you make a text transparent in Photoshop.
