How to Get a Copyright Symbol


How do you create the copyright logo in Photoshop on a laptop/notebook computer that doesn't have the ten key pad? Thanks!

  Try holding down ALT and Fn and type 0169. I haven't tried it on mine but I've read that will work.

I was testing Richard's tip because I too, am without a 10-key pad, but do have numbers across the top of my keyboard from left to right. I found that this tip does not work with those numbers. However, there are also numbers doubled up with certain letters on the regular keyboard, 4 is with "U", 5 is with "I", etc. What I found is that if I press the Function Key, then "num lk", it activates these numbers. You still have to use the 'alt' key. Then it works. ©©

  A.M., The numbers above the letter keys will not produce the same results. You need to use the keypad or secondary function numbers as you will have on a laptop keyboard accessed via the FN key. You may need to consult your laptop owners manual for some models.

  A.M.& Richard,
Thanks for your input and time. It works! My old Dell notebook has the same as A.M. mentioned.
Have a great New Year everyone!

Larry Larsen   In PS open the custom shape tool, select the drop down menu, there is a copyright symbol there that can be resized , change color etc.

  Larry, yes, but not always as convenient to enter and resize with the rest of the text you use...though you can do that if you work carefully with layers.

  Or, you can just invoke the 'Character Map' application included with Windows, and copy and paste it.

  Character Map is a possibility though the shortcut is a LOT quicker. Character Map can be accessed via Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools...or perhaps there is a shorter route. Then you need to locate the character, double-click the character, click copy when the Copy button appears and go back to your application and paste. If you choose to use the Character Map and end up using it frequently, you may want to make a Shortcut on your Desktop and/or add it to your Start menu.

I hope that helps!
