PDF documents are widely used in today’s digital world, and confidentiality is always a top concern when it comes to sharing sensitive information. One way to ensure that your PDF documents are secure is to add a confidential watermark. In this article, we will discuss about adding confidential watermark to PDF documents on macOS.
This can be achieved with Apple’s inbuilt Preview App on macOS. Follow the steps below to do it.
Step 1: Open the PDF in Preview
The first step in adding a confidential watermark to your PDF document on macOS is to open the PDF in Preview. Simply double-click on the PDF file or right-click on the file and select “Open With” and then choose Preview.
Step 2: Open Markup Toolbar
Once the PDF is open in Preview, you will need to access the Markup Toolbar to add the watermark. To do this, click on the “Show Markup Toolbar” icon in the top right corner of the Preview window. Alternatively, you can select “Tools” in the top menu bar and then click on “Show Markup Toolbar.”
Step 3: Add Text or Image Watermark
Once you have the Markup Toolbar open, you can add a text or image watermark to your PDF document. To add a text watermark, select the “Text” tool in the Markup Toolbar and then click on the document where you want to add the watermark. Type in the text you want to use as the watermark eg: confidencial and then adjust the font, size, colour, and opacity as desired.
To add an image watermark, select the “Rectangle” tool in the Markup Toolbar and then draw a rectangle on the document where you want the watermark to appear. Next, select the “Image” tool in the Markup Toolbar and then drag the image you want to use as the watermark onto the rectangle. Adjust the opacity of the image as desired.
Step 4: Save the PDF
Once you have added the watermark to your PDF document, you can save it by selecting “File” in the top menu bar and then clicking on “Export.” Choose the format you want to save the PDF in, and then click on “Save.”
