How to Put a Registered Symbol in Photoshop


To help you reduce the amount of time it takes to create shapes, Photoshop's Custom Shape tool allows you to select a shape from a set of commonly used shapes and insert it in your document. One of the shapes installed with Photoshop is the registered trademark symbol. Using the Custom Shape tool, you can insert the symbol in your document and then customize it to match the design of the document.

  • Open the document you want to edit in Photoshop or create a new document by clicking Photoshop's "File" menu and selecting "New."

  • Click on the "Rectangle Tool" icon in the "Tools" window on the left side of the application. Continue to hold the mouse button down until a pop-up box opens. Click on the "Custom Shape Tool" icon in the pop-up box.

  • Click the "Create A New Layer" icon at the bottom of the "Layers" window on the right side of the application. Placing the symbol on a new layer allows you to edit the symbol without affecting the elements on other layers of the document.

  • Click the "Custom Shape" pull-down menu on the toolbar above the document, then select the registered trademark symbol from the menu.

  • Click and hold the left mouse button on the location in the document where you want the symbol to appear. Drag the mouse to enlarge the symbol, then release the mouse button when symbol is the correct size.
