Now activate your Text Tool - Set your font, size & color.
I used :

Now add your copyright & credit information. (Do not skip this step! Very Important!!)

Now once you are happy with every thing on your tag - go to your layers pallet - right click on any layer - then click Merge - then click Merge Visible.

Now if needed activate your Crop Tool & crop off any access canvas that you did not use.

Once cropped you may want to re-size your tag depending on where you will be using it.

Once re-sized I like to Sharpen my tag one final time. You can do this as well or your own preference.

Now all that is left is to save your tag as a PNG file & you have completed this tutorial!!♥
