SUPPORT INFORMATION
This script adds the filename, which can be with or without the extension, to a photo, along with optional text before and after the filename. The script works cross-platform in CS, but to use the script in PS7 you will need to install the scripting plug-in from Adobe at http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=1536 (or the Mac equivalent. Download my script and save it to c:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop\Presets\Scripts Run the script with File>Automate>Scripts or File>Scripts, for batch processing incorporate in an action. You can edit almost all the attributes - Point Size, Font, Colour, Position, Opacity and blend mode. This is best done in a HTML editor such as AceHTML for the PC or BBEdit for the Mac. The Font name has to be the Postscript name, which is always different from the usual . You can get the name by creating a new file, typing anything in the font you want, and running the Adobe GetFontName.js script

Wonderful script, but I am unable to use the copyright symbol in my text. It just gives a question mark instead. Seems to do that with all the non-character symbols. Tried different fonts without success. I can edit in the right symbol, so it is not missing from the font.

Fantastic little script. Does exactly what I needed. Code was well written and easily editable to be able to tweak the settings.

Keep up the good work!
