    Hey everyone

    I have a large photo collection which i regulary use on a rotational basis on my website.

    The thing is i would like to have "JEMDNA Photography" put onto the image in a font/size of my choice in the right hand corner (small) of the image.

    Now i know i could copy and paste the text into each photo but as my image library is already 350+ and going up regulary, this could be a time consuming task.

    What i would like is a way to utilise automator to do this task for me.. something like

    -> Select Folder with orignal images

    -> Paste text ontop of image

    -> Output edited version to a DIFFERENT folder

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks everyone in advance

    Assuming you have Photoshop, I'd look for a PS action/script that will handle this for you.

    Read this tutorial. It's very advanced and very confusing, but it's a great tutorial.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    Thanks surfwax

    I had a read through and found it ok but seems a little complicated for something simple.

    However much i hate my windoze box, i have found software (freeware) which does the whole batch resize thing (like iPhoto) but also had the ability to add a watermark

    "Visualizer Photo Resize"
