Time stamp with PS CS4?

I would like to add a time stamp a copies of my edited photos for use in photoalbums (I only use copies for this purpose not to ruin my optimized originals).

Is there a way to do this in PS where you can just copy the exif information onto the text layer?

If you could make this as a batch process it would of course be even better.

Thank you,

Git

Re: Time stamp with PS CS4?

You can add a date/time stamp through lightroom in the print module. I'm still learning lightroom, so don't know how to do it well. I put a time stamp on my images using photoshop scripting, which is a bit more involved, but I can make it just the way I want using javascript.

Thank you very much for your answer. Unfortunately I don't own the Ligthroom software but only PS CS4 + Bridge.

Not a plugin, but if you make a folder with the images you want stamped this might help

Re: Time stamp with PS CS4?

Here is a script file you can use. Unzip the attachement and place the file timestamp in the subfolder of photoshop CS4\presets\scripts. Start photoshop. Open an image and then go to file>scripts>timestamp. This will place the date and time in the lower right corner. You can and should add this to an action. After you run the script in the action, you can adjust the layer style and such to make it more visable.

The script works great! Is there anyway to change it so the timestamp shows the "seconds" as well? So it read HH:MM:SS not just HH:MM. Thanks!

Yes, open the script in the extendscript toolkit (comes with photoshop) and on line 24 change the very last number from 35 to 38). so line 24 should look like this (all one line):

Code:
timeDate = dateString.substring(24,26) + '-' + dateString.substring(27,29) + '-' + dateString.substring(19,23) + '  ' + dateString.substring(30,38)

I would also change the first line to read:

Code:
#target photoshop

Re: Time stamp with PS CS4?

Hi, cool stuff works great.

About the Timestamp text, i tried to put put a different font/color to the timestamp by using something like this:

textItemRef.fontcolor (f48009)

or

textItemRef.fontcolor (244,128,9)

both don't work, i guess i should create a "color" object.

A bit hard to find info online...

any ideas?

Thanks

Yes, you have to create a color object such as:

Code:
var foregroundC = new SolidColor();
	foregroundC.rgb.red = 0;
	foregroundC.rgb.green = 0;
	foregroundC.rgb.blue = 0;
	foregroundColor = foregroundC;
