Giving photo credit to yourself

Daniel Cheung , Aug 11, 2006; 01:01 p.m.

Sorry, I know this doesn't really belong in the Canon EOS forum but I've posted basically everything in this forum and I know the people in this forum usually knows what they are talking about.

I'd like to place some text: "Photo by: Weiyang Liu" at the bottom right corner of about 150 photos. What's the quickest and easiest way to do this?

thanks in advance.

Irfanview has a watermark feature that allows you to add any text to a folder of images. It's a free download at http://irfanview.com. I don't use it much any more, but it's a really good free image viewer and it's got very powerful batch tools.

If you have PhotoShop CS then you can record an action and do a batch run on the folder with all the images that you need to amend.

One word of warning though; when I tried it the text came out at different sizes because not all my photos were the same pixel dimension and the text remained at the same font (pixel dimensions)
