The copyright symbol is a letter "c" enclosed in a circle. You may want to precede a copyright notice or photographer credit with this symbol when designing graphics or editing photographs in Photoshop Elements 7. Many font faces include a copyright symbol, though you'll need a special keyboard command to access it.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Launch Photoshop Elements 7.

  2. 2

    Click "File" and "New" to create a new image canvas, or click "File" and "Open" to select an existing image file.

  3. 3

    Click the Text tool in the toolbar. The icon for this tool is a capital "T."

  4. 4

    Click in the location on your image where you want to make a copyright symbol.

    Hold down the "Alt" key.

Tips and warnings

  • Not every font face has a copyright symbol. If a different character appears when you press "Alt" and type "0169," highlight the character and change its font to Arial or Times New Roman.
