Adding the word "Proof" to a set of proofs - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Is there an automatic way to add the word "Proof" to a set of 70 photos before I print off the 4x6's for a client? Also, do Digital Photographers doing Portraiture typically put a Copyright or "Proof" on the proofs they give to their clients? Thanks, Eileen...

    Default Re: Adding the word "Proof" to a set of proofs

    I'm a digital portrait photographer and I seldom hand out proofs to my clients. generally people have problems to understand from a 4x6 how it would look at 20x30 on their walls. That's the reason why I will buy myself a digital projector soon. If they see their images at 40x60 any 20x30 will look small....

    But if I do hand out proofs, I usually print my website URL across the image. This way I can promote my website to everyone they show the images.

    If you hand out proofs, never give them such a big choice as 70 prints, because they most likely won't be able to make up their minds. Limit the number to only a few of the best. This will improve your sales, reduce your costs and you don't have to show them the ones you will never sell.

    I work in a photo imaging place. People are always bringing in the proofs for us to copy. They think they are saving money. On the back of most pro prints are words DO NOT COPY. This is on the paper not rubber stamped. Obviously such paper is available. We refuse to make copies whenever we see the DO NOT COPY or if the prints are obviously taken by a pro. It violates copyright law.

    Some pros who use digital cameras are now giving clients a CD of all images instead of proofs. The CDs are usually marked COPYRIGHTED IMAGES - DO NOT PRINT. The images are email quality. We don't print those either.

    Elements does not have a feature where you can add words to images en masse. I believe that the full version of Photoshop can do this.
