    I have noticed that a lot of the posted pics here on TPF have signatures in the low right corner. I was wondering how you make these. Does Photoshop CS have this feature :?: I can't seem to get anywhere in the PS help menu.

    The text tool is the simple answer. Select it, click on your image, and type :) Most fonts have the copyright symbol. You can find this with with Character Map, built into Windows, which you'll find by Start Menu-->Run-->charmap

    An easier way to get © is to hold down the Alt key and type 0169 on the keypad.

    But how would you create an action out of this and automate it? I need to add a signature to about 200 photos, is there a way to do it batch? Thanks

    Have you looked at www.irfanview.com ?

    I use this to resize and I know there are quite a few batch options. I don't have this at work so I can't check, but it's free and it might do that for you.

    Assuming all of your photos are oriented the same way, have the same border, and the sig will go in the same place on each one, you can make an action in photoshop and run that action through the batch dialogue.

    Here's a dumb question. How do I format the font of the text I'm typing in??? It's defaulting to some huge font.

    The controls for the font are at the top of the screen in the toolbar.
