While Photoshop allows you to edit and alter photos in a number of different ways, it is somewhat limited in the way that it handles text. For example, in order to make a copyright sign in Photoshop, you must use a keyboard shortcut that is not intuitive. Being able to make a copyright symbol in Photoshop can be important, particularly for those who create a design or other intellectual property in Photoshop and want to protect their rights to its ownership.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open the page on which you want to insert the copyright sign.

  2. 2

    Click the "Text Box" tool and click and drag your mouse on the page to create a box in the location where you want to insert the copyright sign.

  3. 3

    Click your cursor inside the box.

  4. 4

    Press "ALT" and "0169" on the numeric keypad on the right side of your keyboard. The copyright sign will appear in the text box.

Tips and warnings

  • If you are using a laptop and have no numeric keypad, press and hold the "FN" key before performing Step 4. Then use the number keys at the top of the keyboard.
