View Full Version : Creating an action for placing copyright symbol on images
12-08-2003, 03:52 AM
I'd like to create an action to copy an image and then put a copyright symbol on it. The placement of the symbol isn't absolutely critical, just so it's across some of the photo.
How can I make one?

start recording hte action:
-copyright symbol (check the alt code guide, or use charmap.exe or write (c)
that should do you.

I do know that the alt code for the copyright symbol is "alt 0169" © yup - it worked

glad to have helped.
I just made a tiny photoshop file with the text over a transparent background (being too lazy to work out an action). I just copy and paste. That way I can place it where it works with the image.
Gads! One of the four minor things I hate about PC's: typing those special symbols.
3rd worse is creating new folders. It's easy: ALT + F, ENTER, ENTER (different for each system)
2nd peeve is finding the source for an alias. There's gotta be a better way.
And 1st place goes to: ALT F4 to quit (who came up with that, just awful).
But, thank the gods for ALT TAB, almost makes up for these.

I like (windows button) - D to get to an empty desktop when you've got lots of windows open, myself... :-)

if you rely on keystrokes to increase workflow... GET A MAC :D
new folder: CMD+SHFT+N
new window/file: CMD+N
spanish/french accents?: OPTION+E

Yeah, but then you have to use a key with your mouse all the time... :-)

not with my wacom tablet and 4D mouse.
any two button USB mouse will work with a mac.

why do macs not come with a two button? I've never understood that. It's not like they don't know they exist. Heck most poeple now use a 3-5 button mouse, sometimes going overboard on those 7+ buttons. But macs (imacs atleast... not their most shining star) still just have the one buttons that don't fit comfortably in any hand. What's the science with that yo?
