PhotoShop Action: Batch Watermarking Your Facebook Photos

If you haven't taken the time to read all of the Statements of Rights and Responsibilities for your Facebook page (for personal or business use) you may not be aware of the following.  In particular for photographers who post many photos be sure you thoroughly understand #1:

Sharing Your Content and Information - (click here to read all of the rules)

You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:
  1. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it
With this in mind I have decided to watermark some of my images.  I wanted a quick and easy way to do this and after scouring the internet on how to do this, I found the video below to be the most useful.  I had already created a brush with my logo, which I find very easy to do.  So by creating a layer in PhotoShop that has my watermark it was super easy to follow the instructions below.  There are a lot of other instructional videos on how to create a batch action like this, but this one was the one I ended up using.
