How to create Copyright symbols

Today I want to share with you some good information concerning Copyright symbols and how to make them on computers.

As we all know it's been kind of difficult and strange to find the copyright symbols and trademarks on computers you just have to go into some ASCII text.

Is not everyday that people been using this and to make your life simpler here goes some good tips how you can get those symbols.

To get the "c in the circle" to display on your computer or website, use HTML code "!" or "&copy" in browser view so it will look like this: © 2007

For a trademark symbol on a web page, you must use the ASCII Character Code: "™" or, if your trademark is registered: "®" or "®" (browser) to look like this:®

To get the copyright symbol to display when typing text documents, you can either insert the symbol using the software program options or:

For PC -
1. Hold the Ctrl and Alt keys at the same time and press c (Ctrl+Alt+c), or
2. Hold the Alt key and type 0169 on the number pad (Alt+0169)
3. You can access the Character Map from start>programs>accessories>system tools>character map and search on to library font if that particular font has the symbol you want then simply copy and paste it to Photoshop or other program.

For Mac -
Hold down the Option key and press 'g' (Option+g)

For the trademark symbol when your trademark is not registered, press:
Ctrl+Alt+t or type Alt + 0174 on a PC; or
Option+2 on a Mac.

For the registered trademark symbol, type:
Alt + 0153 or Ctrl+Alt+r on a PC; or
Option+R on a Mac.
