Add Filename Plus & Date

This script is the same one as that of Brian Price, Add Filename Plus, with insertion of the current date moreover. In short, 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. In my version, the optional text after the filename contains the date (dd/mm/yy).

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 (or the Mac equivalent. Download the 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

Thank you! Helped me very much! I thought, I could never automatically add the filename to a picture via droplet.

Works as advertized. I changed font color to white and location with Dreamweaver, but location can also be dragged inside PS as well as changing the font and color with type tool.
