You can if you have Microsoft Word programe do it this way.
Open Word and click on the Insert Tab & from the drop down menu click on Synbol tab , from which a box will appear with loads of symbols on it, copy & paste the copywrite symbol .
When in CS3 using the layers palette make a transparent layer & then copy & paste the symbol sign again

Hope this helps

To get the copyright symbol in Photoshop, press Alt and 0169 on the numeric keypad.

Should be as simple as creating a new document with a transparent background, laying the watermark/text over it, and saving for web.

Add a new layer to your file.
Create the watermark in white. Scale and place it where you want it to be.
Reduce the opacity of that layer untill you are happy with the results.

You can also play with the Layer Styles, so that only the Shadow or the Inner Shadow is shown. Might be less interfering with the image and still doing its job.
