How To Add Watermark In Google Docs

Google Docs has some pretty useful features. Along with those, it also has the option of adding a watermark to your Google documents.

Here is how to do that:

Open the document in Google Docs in which the watermark is to be inserted.

Choose Insert > Watermark.

To choose an existing watermark (e.g: an image watermark), click on the Select Image button. By default, the Faded option is enabled, which means that the watermark will be faded or light against the background. You can remove this option to have it displayed prominently in the document if needed.

The watermark in Google Docs to be added can be uploaded from the local folder, through Google Drive, through a URL, through camera and photos, and even using a Google Image search.
