I am after a simple script that will automatically add the image filename to my photos as a text layer. 

I need a .jsx file that I can download and add to my Photoshop scripts folder.

yes, trouble is I don't really know what I'm doing.

I downloaded the script from https://tejwani.com/photoshop-script-insert-current-filename/

This sort of worked but required a step to decide on the script size and whether to include the file path or extension.

I used to have a script that just loaded the file name without this step but a change of computer meant I lost the script and I cannot find a replacement.
