    Hi Bill
    Happy New Year to you to.
    Did you create your Copyright stamp in PS? Can you describe how you did it please? I can't seem to get it right.

    Yep Ricks Tute is pretty much what I used , But I got the Copyright Symbol from the preset menu here , Make the new Document , Create a new Layer, PC , Shift U for the custom shape menu, Click on the third icon from the left , Press enter that will bring up the Custom shape picker with the copyright symbol , Drag out the copyright symbol and place in the new Document

    It's pretty cool once it's added to the brush presets , One click and done

    To get the © symbol, do Alt+0169. (That is, hold down Alt and hit 0169 on the number pad.)
    I don't bother with making a brush/stamp as my photographs can vary in size and I always want my name to be clear and sharp. I find that simply typing it in with the text tool is the best way. Saves fussing around with the more technical methods too.
    Just my 2c for anyone who wants options.

    Using the brush method you can easily increase/decrease the size of the watermark, just the same as you can with any other brush. Select the brush and then use the [ key to decrease size and the ] key to increase the size. I resize my watermark brush all the time, using the [ ] keys. You can also use the eyedropper tool and select a colour from your photo, then select your watermark brush, to have the watermark in different colours.

    And also if you use your Copyright Brush on another layer you can change the Opacity of the Watermark to whatever suits the Image

    A question -does simply placing a copyright stamp on an image have any validity? I listened to a photography podcast recently (from US) which indicated that images actually have to be registered for copyright to be valid in a court of law.

    Any thoughts?

    To quote from the Australian Copyright Council...

    There is no system of registration for copyright protection in Australia. Copyright protection does
    not depend upon registration, publication, a copyright notice, or any other procedure—the
    protection is free and automatic.
    A photograph is protected by copyright automatically from the moment it is taken.


    If you go to their website they have a PDF for Photographers Copyright, very informative and not full of legal mumbo jumbo.

    Oh and thanks for the reminder William, I'll have to update mine when I get home.

    My latest thought is it might make someone think twice before pinching it and using it somewhere else without my permission , (Stop the honest thieves ) if you know what I mean

    @ Michael : Thanks for that info , I did think the Photographer owned the Copyright to the image they had taken

    That's why I use it on my images, not really for any other reason.

    There are situations that change that though so don't take that as a blanket statement for all photographs. I suggest you read the full document that goes over the differences.
