Is there a way of having the filename print out on the picture?

I'm forever having to present these printed photos and would like to have the descriptions I use on the bottom of the photo, like a footer.
Is this possible?

Thanks

The answer seems to be no.

Why don't you print the picture from internet explorer, then the path and filename will be printed on the page.

Because the photos are on a company server.
I have to distribute them at presentations and whatnot and I'd like the file or path name to be on so they can be sourced by people in the company from the hard copy.

Thanks anyway.

Actually, now I think about that, it might work.
I'll try tomorrow.

Thanks.

Simply use any image editor....even MS Paint will work

Select Text from the tools menu
Choose your desired colour.
Uncheck Image>Draw Opaque on menu bar.
Insert your required text and the underlying picture should still be visible through the text.

So the text becomes part of the picture, when you re-save the pic.

If your talking about professional photoImage editing then go with freeohfree's suggestion, but this works fine for any old images

i thought i replied to this yesterday.

you can do it with php. http://ie.php.net/gd

you'll probably loop something like

Code:
<?php
$files = scandir( "/dir/where/images/are" );
foreach $files as $key => $filename {
      if( ereg( ".*\.jpg$", $filename ) {
      $image = imagecreatefromjpeg( "$filename" );
      imagestring( $image, 1, 10, 1, "$filename", "$black" );
   }
}
?>
of course, you could use bash and Imagemagicks `convert` also

Code:
#!/bin/bash
cd /image/directory;
mkdir marked_images;
for x in *.jpg; do
   convert $x.jpg -draw "text 0,10 \"`date` $x.jpeg Copyright ME!\"" $x-marked.jpg;
   mv ./$x-marked.jpg ./marked_images/;
done;

both of the above should write the image name on the image, the bash one also will write the date before the image name.


thanks.
