unwanted text distortions in PS

Hello from a new member who has limitted experience with post processing digital images. Hope I've come to the right place for help.

When I batch convert (resize and insert text CR) large jpg files straight out of the camera, the CR watermark turns out exactly the way I want it to.

However, when I try to batch convert jpg files that have been converted from RAW files (or from files that have been somehow resized) , the watermark gets grossly distorted and bunched up, despite my using the same action as the former.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? PS is now doing this consistently. Any help would be great.

Thanks
Eric

I don't know if this will help, but Russell Brown has an excellent QuickTime tutorial on watermarks.

It sounds like the proportions are not being constrained when you are resizing. That is the only thing I have found which tends to distort text. Try Image>Size before and after and compare the dimensions in pixels.

Hi Swampy
I learned the workflow from those tutorials, and the results have been fine, until now

Hi Murray
I used the "fit image" tool under file to constrain the size to 800x800 px, since there are landscape and portrait image orientations. So, theoretically, it shouldn't matter what size the original image is....right?

If I use "image size", I'd have to batch process portrait images separately from landscape images.

Thanks for chiming in
Eric
