preference of techniques for inserting copyright notices

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by J. F. Cornwall, May 28, 2007.

  1. Hi all. Just curious how most folks deal with the repetitive and boring
    task of inserting a copyright notice into a digital image while you're
    processing it. Type it in by hand every time, or create a separate file
    you paste in, or somethineg else?

    Just curious. I do the type-it-in method myself, but I'm leaning
    towards making a separate file.

    J. F. Cornwall offered these thoughts for the group's
    consideration of the matter at hand:
    I'd like to know that myself! I add a copyright manually in EXIF
    even though it is easily removed. I know I can add them later in
    Exifer, but what I'd really like is a batch function to add
    something to EXIF and perhaps to the face of the image after I've
    finished a series.

    The best I have now is a small Notepad file with the most used
    special character symbols , my copyright notice, and some other
    useful stuff. I copy whatever to the clipboard and paste into
    wherever I need it to go. Pretty slow and very tedious.

    Exifer can do that for you.

    I talked about my approach to this in an article on my blog,
    Single-Serving Photo:

    http://www.singleservingphoto.com/2007/04/15/automated-workflow-i/

    Basically I use a combination of ImageMagick, a previously-created GIF
    image for the watermark, and a little bit of scripting magic to glue
    it together. The code and examples in the article are for the Mac, but
    they should be adaptable to the PC using something like Cygwin or
    other similar trickery.

    I have it to the point where watermarking doesn't even enter my mind
    because it's all taken care of automatically at export time!
