    I am trying to do a batch action with photoshop but it's not working.

    I have a whole folder of images and one photo of a copyright symbol. I turn on actions/record then copy the copyright symbol to the photo and save it. I turn off record and choose file/animate. It's not working.

    Basically what I want to do is have the symbol place itself automatically on each picture and save it in a folder but I keep getting error messages saying that document 6 is not available (whatever that is) and then it asks me what resolution to save the photo at. Automate should do all of this without my intervention.

    I would be happy to use another program if anyone has any suggestions on how I can do this. I have thousands of images I need to copyright so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I don't know about using external documents as points in the action or if that will even work. Just create one entering a text layer, rasterize it and move the layer where you want it.

    Don't use an image of the @ symbol. Open an image, any image, start a recording for a new action. Select the text tool, type in the image you just opened, move it where you want it and stop the recording. Open a different picture and run the action.

    Is that the only way to do it cause I created a special copyright image with our logo and company name. I don't HAVE to use it but it would be nice. Thanks.

    I have been looking around and I seemed to have missed a step. I did not choose New Set then New Action. I did this and now it pastes the image of the copyright ok but then when it goes to save it, it wants me to save it as a psd file, when in the actions I clearly clicked Save For Web and choose .jpg. I've used these actions before without any problems and I shouldn't have to click anything, it should just do it.

    I found a trail version of a program called PhotoMark. It does exactly what I want and it's very easy to use. I think I'm going to purchase the full version as it's only $28 USD.
