Following on from my previous post re watermarking photos (and while I'm sucking up to Gudge) can I ask another question....

Assuming the text layer (your watermark) is going to remain constant in all photos, is it possible to "save" the text layer and reuse it, or do you need to recreate it on each photo?

Thanks again

What I did before switching from PSE to CS3 was save a picture with the text layer the way I wanted it somewhere handy. Then when I wanted to add the text layer to new photos I opened the photo with the text layer in it and the photo(s) I wanted to add it to and just dragged and dropped the text layer from one photo to another. You can also do this by copying and pasting.

Now that I use CS3 I just created an Action (macro) that does everything I want to create the watermark and assign it to a function key. Then when I want to add it to a photo I just hit the function key and everything is done automatically.

Another way to quickly add a watermark is by creating a watermark brush:

Although the article is for Photoshop, I've done it with PSE.

Once again, thank you for your help. I'm going to print your reply, re-read a few times, and have a play when it's not quite so late at night (well, it's late on the east coast
