Putting text on images?
Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to put the copyright (C in a cirlce) logo and my name on my images. I have PS 6 and Capture NX. Is it possible to do this with either of these programs, and if so, how?Thanks..

The copyright symbol is text generated in any program, not just an image editing program. Use the text tool in Photoshop. ALT+0169 on a PC and Option G on a MAC will put the copyright symbol in your text.Larry Bermanhttp://BermanGraphics.com..

Hello,.

The (ALT+0169) in text tool in photoshop in my PC (it's not Mac) doesn't make copyright symbole. What do you think about it?any help appreciate...

You need to type the 0169 while holding down the Alt key. When you release the Alt key, the will appear!.

What about other programs like Word or Notepad? The text is a function of your operating system, not any one program..

The alternative is to copy the copyright symbol from a web page and paste it into your text:http://bermangraphics.com/tips/copyright-symbol.htm.

Thank you Larry. Your link was useful and helpful for me.I saw this symbol almost in all fonts in character map but the keystroke(Alt+0169) dosen't work in any program Maybe because I use laptop and it hasn't got numeric keypad.Anyway as you said I can copy it everywhere.Thanks a lot for giving your information...

FWIW, the alt+0169 does not make the copyright sign appear for me either. It does however allow me to write text (my name, etc) on the image.Bill..

Using the numeric keypad and once you release the Alt key, it will appear..

This works when using Photoshop programs and the text button. It also works in 'notepad' and will look like this by lucy elmore 2007.

That's why. It doesn't work on laptops. Or rather, you have to do finger gymnastics to do it. You probably need to 1) make sure NumLock is turned on; 2) hold down the Function (Fn) key; while 3) holding the Alt key, and 4) typing 0169. Have fun!.

Easiest way is to save a text file with the copyright symbol and copy and paste it whenever needed.Larry Bermanhttp://BermanGraphics.com..

Hi Dave,Hi Larry,.

Finally I could do it in all programs  As you said it is neseccery: 1- switch ON your labtop "num lock" by holding down Function key( blue "Fn" key) and press blue lable "Num Lk" key 2- while holding the Alt key type 0169 by blue lable numbers. It does work in my labtop in this way and I didn't know.Any way thank you very much for teaching to me this technic.  ..

Open photo you want to work on in Photoshop, create new layer, then select T type tool, place curser on photo, hold down ALT key and use the number key pad and type in 0169, and release, you now have a copy right mark on your photo, just add you text as normal .Then go to the layers pallet, bottom left corner, there is a black dot with an F in it, select this, and adjust the text to suit, then merge all and there you have it, although why any one would want to do this I don't know, as copyright is automatically yours if you took the photo, it is all embedded in the Exif file. I put one on this photo as an example.

Selecting the text tool and placing it on the image and typing automatically creates a new text layer..
