This is a tutorial that will explain how to add a copyright notice to your photos in Aftershot Pro. It can even be done automatically when you export the image as a Jpeg for publishing online. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to create a new preset called “My Copyright Text”. This tutorial uses the zText plugin.
This is what a simple copyright message will look like but you can change it to suit your own needs.
After you install zText find it in the plugins tabs and enable it, type your copyright notice and set the size appropriately.
You can adjust where the message will appear on the “Preset” tab of the plugin.
Once you’re happy with your copyright message hop over to the Presets widget and click the + “Add Preset” icon.
This window will popup, rename the preset to something meaningful and click “None” to unselsect everything.
Go into the Advanced tab and select zTextPlug and you should see the settings you already configured. Click OK.
Click the Show checkbox next to your new preset and the “Done” button on the Preset widget.
If you have an output job configured you can add the copyright notice as a preset in the job settings to automate the task every time you export a file. One advantage of doing this is your image in Aftershot Pro won’t have the copyright text making it easier to export it again using a different batch output job.
Hope that helped, want some more Aftershot Pro tutorials?

2 more Aftershot Pro plugins here. Mix3 and Bez. Both open source too so I must take a look at the source..
And of course the Aftershot Pro forums on corel.com are invaluable.
