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.
