    how do I add my name copyright to an image?

    adobe photoshop 5.0


    i have a very basic knowledge of photoshop, so this is escaping me.

    Can you be more specific?

    You can add text to your image with the text tool.

    Why not add it in camera? Check your manual to see if the D60 allows you to add authoring info into it. If not, then use CaptureNX to add batch EXIF data to your files when you transfer them off your camera.

    you can type it in the font you want and change the opacity to more trasparent if that's what you want

    Select the Text tool
    Click out somewhere in the image
    Type out your name
    Using the text tool highlight the text you just typed and adjust font type, font size, spacing, etc till it's what you want
    Select the Move tool and move the text layer around until the text is where you want it on the image
    Save as PSD or flatten layers and save as JPG

    thanks Phelan - i thought that might be the way, but it seemed like yours were so consistent, I thought it was a general mark that was being put on by the program.

    Part of why mine are consistent is I have a PSD that is nothing but the copyright text and I just copy & paste the text layer. I do have to adjust the font size depending on the image I'm pasting it into, but that's easier than having to remember the font used, kerning, etc and manually creating it each time.

    If you will be putting the logo in the same location everytime you might want to look into recording the process of creating your logo as a photoshop action that creates the logo, saves the file and then closes the file .. this way you can open up multiple images and just click the play button a few times and everything is done in no time.

    I have mine setup as an action in CS4, not sure if yours can do it. If it can, it is a big help.

    There are online photo tools that can do it automatically. Doing it in photoshop is pointless if your trying to do multiple pics
