Use the color picker to select the color for your box. I find it works well to use a color that exists somewhere in the photo. In this case I matched the teal in my son’s shirt. The yellow on the bike would have worked well too.

A drop down menu will appear and you should choose “my computer.” It will open up  your files and you select your watermark. Use you cursor in the corner to make the watermark as big as you like.
