I have been asked to take senior pictures for a few kids whose dads are out of work. I have basic lighting and ordered a reflector and am shooting with Canon 20D digital rebel. How can I "imprint" name on bottom of photo in photoshop? Also, any suggestions for good pics would be appreciated! I am new at this and am just trying to help out. Regards!
Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking to do but what I do for some pictures is to make transparent text at the bottom. The text is completely see thru as to not take away from image.
I use some of the text examples found in Scott Kelby's "Down and Dirty Tricks" books. He has various examples of "transparent text" in his books and offers good step by step examples
Here is simple example and link to a "non Scott Kelby example " but you can get the idea. This example goes through many more steps than the one I use offered by Scott Kelby
Here is a link to another example

You can add a text layer that has the name on it above the layer with the main image. This allows you to place the name in any location you wish and add as many layer styles (Outer Glow, Drop Shadow, Transparency, etc.) you wish to spice it up.
Since you're doing this for grads, you might also want to look at the Picture Package feature.
File > Automate > Picture Package, for multiple printing layouts after you've completed the file.
Thanks -- I'll try both of these!!!
