    If you have Photoshop, you can set up an action that does this.

    If not, here's a freeware program which seems to do the trick:

    Picture-shark gives you the ability to watermark and copyright your picture galleries.
    Enjoy :-)

    I don't know how to do the Action, I've tried. Do you know a great tutorial?

    I have Picture-shark, but doesn't work with PNG with transparences, just make transparece a color, and I can't arrive to a great quality image with that. I need a program that allow me transparences, for example to add shadows.

    Thanks for your quick answer. Again, sorry my english.

    Hm, I didn't know about the PNG-problem in Picture-shark. Anyway, googling after "photoshop actions tutorial" gives lots of results:

    The matter is that my PC at work don't have a lot of resources as to run an Action Script with a lot of pictures (also I have problems with horizontal and vertical pictures).

    Don't you know a program that do this specifically?

    Thanks in advance.

    XnView - free image browser (a great one, by the way).
    Go to Tools->Batch Processing->Transformations tab and under Image select Watermark.

    ThumbsPlus is one that I use. It's not free, but they do offer a 30 day trial. It's super easy to add watermarks to entire directories of images.

    You can try using Digimarc. We have using it for more than 5 years now.

    adobe photoshop - the automate tool,

    click at the top on "windows" -> "actions" then click the little arrow on the actions window panel and create new action, now when you do it should begin recording every thing you do, if not click the red circle, to record. After it's begun recording - simply create your watermark on an opened file or drop it on one of an opened image file then stop recording the action. Now go to "file" -> "automate"->"batch" then select the folder with all your .jpg's in one folder, it will then run the action and place the watermark automatically to all of them. But do not interrupt it, for it will stop.

    that'd only work if all the images were the same size, otherwise he'll end up with a watermark in a different place on every image.

    Photoshop is a costly software, so for someone who is not a graphic designer buying it for watermarking the images would be a waste of money if the same result can be achieved with free program.

    It's GIMP or GIMPshop - GIMP with Photoshop-like interface.

    And what on the 31st day?
    That's why I suggested a free program in order to avoid temporary solution only.
    However you're right with the batch tool in Photoshop of course.

    hey,guys.

    I have a couple ideas for you.

    1) Batch Watermark Creator...
    Provides the ability to create and apply templates containing images, text, borders, etc.. in a batch mode. I'm currenty using this tool and it can apply wraps to 30 images in about 6 seconds... so yes it's fast.

    2) Timothy Armes has created a Lightroom Plugin called Mogrify, this uses ImageMagick. I've just started to do some testing with this process, but it provides the ability to complete the action with an export. I don't yet know how quick this is.

    Good luck,.
