Creating symbols in photoshop cs
on Jan 27, 2006 at 10:26:29 pm

I trying to figure out how to put a copyright symbol into photoshop. Is it in one of the fonts, or do I have to get it from somewhere else? I have to be able to resize it.

Are you using Windows or Mac?

I'm not sure of the method on Mac, but here's what I do on Win:

1. Choose Start > Run.
2. Type "charmap" (sans quotes) and click OK.
3. Choose your Font.
4. Find the character you want, double-click it, then hit the copy button.
5. Go to Photoshop, grab the text tool and create a new text layer, set the font, and paste.

Also notice at the bottom of the charmap window, it lists the keystroke to type that character directly. For example, the copyright symbol is Alt+0169 (hold down Alt and type the number on the keypad), at least for the Minion font I have selected.
