I know there is going to be a simple solution to this but I cant find it.
I've started publishing a lot more of my photos on the internet for friends and family etc to see and to keep them safe I have been watermarking them with my details, however I can't find a way to add the copyright logo (circle C) to the beginning so all they say at the moment is Chris Heathcote.
Any help on how to add this would be great.

Depends what font you are using.
To check all fonts out run "CHARMAP" generally from the accesories menu. Click select the font and then hover the cursor over the character. In the bottom RH corner will be the code you type to get the character you need.
Just gone through over 40 fonts and it remains the same ( hold down ) Alt 0169
Try 'AltGr' & 'C'
Thanks everyone I'll try tonight when I get in. Thought I'd tried Alt 0169 but not sure now. Tried numerous TBH
Use the right hand numeric keyboard for the numbers.
I'm using a laptop so I dont have the right set of numbers, I guess I press the Fn button and use the numbers under letters?
On a laptop, hold down FN and Alt,and type M,J O and 9. If you look at the keys you'll see the numbers 0169 in the corner!
Thanks again everyone. Can always really on EPZ for help and advice

I've never heard of that before.
Alt 0169 is a keyboard shortcut.
It should work regardless of which font (or typeface to use it's original name) you're using.
In case it's of any use, here's a selection of shortcuts.
If in P/S create a blank layer, select the copyright symbol from the shape tool; using black drag the copyright symbol across your image; adjust the layer blend to lighten; create a Bevel and Emboss layer style; adjust opacity, size and position to taste.
Scroll down to my image of Wells Cathedral as an example here
Just managed it using the Alt Fn 0169 shortcut
Thanks again all
I have my text with the copyright symbol as a brush i.e. pre-prepared.
If 0169 doesn't work for you, copy and paste it from a word editing tool inserted as a symbol e.g. from MSWord !
