Im trying to create a photoshop action that allows me to open an image (photograph) and drop two layers into a specific spot on the image. Essentially what I am doing is Taking about 600 pictures of doctors and putting a small play arrow in the top right corner. The arrow needs to keeps its alfa channel. Any ideas?
That should be easy enough. Save off your arrow as a PSD or PNG file with as much gutter as you need on the top and right side so it position correctly if aligned to the top right corner. Then open your first image. Start to record the action. Place your arrow image, click the check mark to accept it and place it. Then, control click on the BG layer, use the aligh button to align to the top and right edge of the photo.
Done. The key is creating your arrow graphic with the spacing you want in it so you can auto align.
