Photoshop CS6: Batch Processing Copyright Metadata for Multiple Images and Photos
s In this tutorial I will be showing you how to use Photoshop CS6’s batch processing and actions to add copyright metadata to all the images in a folder. We will set up the process first then after that we will be able to in one batch command add our copyright metadata to the entire folder without having to edit each image individually. It is important that we add our copyright details to our images to protect our intellectual property rights. However adding them individually can be very tedious. This process will save us a lot of time down the track.
For this exercise I will be using Photoshop CS6 but most versions have this capability and are all pretty simple if not exactly the same.
This process has been tested and works also on Adobe Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.5 as well as CS6. The process remains unchanged across all these versions of Photoshop.

I will show you how to add multiple transparency gradients to an image in Photoshop CS6. This is more of just a quick simple tip than an actual tutorial and the process should be the same or very similar in other versions of Photoshop. Although we are not actually applying multiple gradient masks we are able to add multiple gradients. Often one gradient in one direction doesn’t acheive the effect we are looking for.
I know I myself tried searching for this recently for a project I was undertaking but couldn’t find much to help out so after much research here is the best way to go about doing it. Continue reading
This is a rather unusual question I’ve been asked. Can the crop tool in Photoshop CS6 crop a circle? Yes and No. Fact is Photoshop CS6 or any other version of Photoshop cannot crop a circle with the crop tool. It can however be done in any version of Photoshop via other methods. The same can be applied to other Adobe products such as Fireworks and Illustrator.
Photoshop CS6 batch processing multiple images ready for the web
In this tutorial we will be showing you how to use batch processing to re-size an entire folder full of images you want to prepare for deployment on your web page. Rather than editing each photo individually, with one simple action we will change them all to 72ppi and re-size them all to suit your website. We all know we don’t want great big picture consuming a few meg of bandwidth each being re-sized by the browser. This is very bandwidth heavy so normally we would use Photoshop or Fireworks to re-size them etc. but when you are processing dozens or even hundreds at a time this can be quite tedious. This is where batch processing comes in. For this exercise I will be using Photoshop CS6 but most versions have this capability and are all pretty simple if not exactly the same.
This process has been testing and works also on Adobe Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.5 as well as CS6. The process remains unchanged across all these versions of Photoshop.

In this tutorial we will show you how to rename dozen or even hundred of images at a time with Photoshop CS5 batch processing capabilities. This technique will work in all version of Photoshop including Photoshop Elements. I am doing this tutorial as I have noticed a lot of people searching my site for it and getting pages that relate to other batch processing items but if you use those methods you could wind up losing a lot of files or just doing nothing at all. Recording a normal action and telling it to rename a file simply won’t work.
In this quick tutorial we will show you how to use Photoshop CS5 to make text go around in a circle. We will show you how to do so in either direction as well as how to rotate the text. We can also use this technique to make out text follow any path we are able to draw in Photoshop. Making text follow a path uses exactly the same techniques as it does for the circle.
We will also show you how to do text inside of a circle so that it takes on the shape of the circle.
