Hey there,

Just wondering if there was a way of putting a signature onto photos automatically...

I work as a DJ in a few bars and while I'm working I take snap shots of the customers for a Facebook page. It's all just quick simple shots with no editing on the pics (besides the occasional crop).

But by the end of every night I've taken quite a few pics and I don't have time to edit a signature onto each one of them.
I just want to know if there's a program that will do that all for me so I can just quickly upload them.

Thanks :)

EDIT: by the way, is signature the right word to be using in photography?

Put it in a Photoshop action, then batch process the series.

If you have Lightroom when you export them as jpg files there is an option to include a watermark. You can either use plain text or, create a custom watermark file in photoshop and use that.

You can also use Mogrify for LR and insert your watermark on export. With any of the automated methods, you're pretty much stuck with putting it in the same spot on each image. Since I tend to move mine around, I do it manually. At most I'll watermark 50 or so images from any given set for posting to FB and forums. Takes maybe 20 secs an image, which isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

Its crazy how people can't work out how to use search on site or even google

Try typing - add watermark or watermark photos or batch watermark

There is like a million tutorials out there and several dedicated sub $30 pieces of software

@LONDON808
What's more crazy is that you mentioned the amount of programs and tutorials yet failed to name one.
Did you really just comment to complain about my question?
Sorry for asking a question that can be found through google but some people such as myself would like to know what professionals on this forum use for this task, and if you weren't going to help then the question wasn't directed at you.

@Maxwell1295
That way is all good if I was doing photoshoots but at the end of each night I have about 400 pics to directly upload onto the site without any need to edit, and if there is a program that adds a watermark to every pic in the album with just one click it would save time.

If you don't have Photoshop, there is a freeware app called Photoscape that can do this. Just run the Batch Editor and tell it to add either text or overlay an image in the bottom corner of every photo. You can also resize for web in the same step.

I did not feel the need to type in what pros use because it would obviously be photoshop

Did you try useing the search on the site because If you did you would see this gets asked almost every week

Oh and your question properly belongs in the post processing section

@LONDON808
Here's an idea,
Stop wasting my time. I don't see why you feel the need to type anything if you aren't going to give a helpful answer.
I came here for help with photography, and for your information I did search but I wasn't entirely sure what to search for as I didn't know the proper name for it at the time. I tried searching for "signature" and "logo" but didn't come with anything useful.
If I knew it was called a watermark in the beginning I would have found a thread, but I am extremely new to this, so I don't see why I wouldn't be allowed from asking such a question if I think someone could help me.
The least you could have done is linked me to one of the other threads you're talking about.
Oh, I hadn't even noticed there was a post processing section. Once again, new here. Please don't put me down for trying to learn. Everyone has to start somewhere.
