    Here's how I do it in PS:

    1. Open a new file. Be sure to check the "transparent" button under contents. Play around with the canvas size and dpi resolution to ge tthe size name stamp you want.

    2. Use the Text Box tool to open a text box.

    3. Pick a font you like and type your desired info, eg "Joe Schmoe©2003"

    4. Crop the image down as tight as you can without cutting the edges off any letters.

    5. Click Edit->Define Brush

    6. Name the Brush eg "Copyright stamp"

    7. Click on the Paintbrush tool and you should see the brush you just made at the bottom of the selection palette.

    8. Select that brush and use it as a stamp with the desired color and transparency you like.

    Hope this helps. Feel free to send me a private message here if you have problems.
