How to type an umlaut on a Mac?

I need to add an umlaut to a letter I’m writing, but I can’t figure out how to do it. How can I type an umlaut on a US Mac with an English keyboard?
Hold down the option key press the u key, let go of both keys and press the key you want to have the umlaut on. Depending on the OS version you can also hold down the key you want the umlaut on and get an option set of the umlaut characters to select from.
