    Hi

    I got a problem. I want to print the date of exposure into a picture
    for example in the right corner.
    Does anybody know whether this could be arranged with an action or
    something else done by PS 7.

    I want to use this action for hundreds of pictures for example for
    marriages and other happenings and the date of exposure is always
    different.

    Has anybody got an idea. Would be very helpful

    Thanks in advance

    Albert

    This question comes every week or so.
    Most of the time people want to add a copyright info or a signature on a
    batch of pictures.
    You need to make a layer with your date and then paste this layer on every
    pic you want.
    You can create an Action or even better a Droplet to automate the process to
    the entire content of a folder.

    If you are getting the date from the Photoshop File Info (which
    includes EXIF data), and you have programming experience, you can
    probably do what you want using the Photoshop scripting plug-in,
    which can be downloaded from the Adobe web site. If you're lucky,
    you might find a script already written to do this.

    Hi Stephan
    Thanks for the answer. My problem is maybe a little bit different to
    the others. I asked myself whether it is possible with PS 7 (by using
    an action or whatever..) getting the date of exposure out of the EXIF
    datas of each picture. Afterwards ich want to put exactly this date in
    the corner of the picture.... That seems to be possible only by
    writing a special script for. But I´m not able to do that, therefore
    I´m looking for such a script or for an action or any other solution
    for my problem........
    Do you have any idea.....

    Hi Warren

    Thanks for your answer. It was exactly what I was afraid of ;-)
    because I´m not able to write such a script.

    Therefore: Do you maybe know whether such a tool ist "downloadable"
    anywhere or whether there ist an other software tool available solving
    my problem ???
