When I had a need for this I opted to go with a paid solution. I purchased Bytescout Watermarking PRO. I am very happy with my purchase and do recommend it if you choose to go with a paid product.

Fineprint will add a watermark to any print job (plus does a lot of other stuff).  Not free but worth the money.

thanks for the info

Imagemick looks a little bit complicated to me. seems to be a commandline only utility?

Bytescout Watermarking PRO and Fineprint are unfortunatly not free  :(

It doesn't have to be a really powerful program, just a program where I could add a watermark to a group of images with a batch command.

you can use Picasa 3 to do that.

Picasa can just add text as far as I can see, but is not able to add an image logo as watermark or?

I don't know if it seems to be a command line utility. I know it IS one.

It's just a different interface, and that might seem to make things complicated. But actually the command line interface is very straight-forward, I believe :)

http://www.imagemagi...script/composite.php might give an idea of the straight-forwardness.

if you don't mind using GIMP, there's a script for it: "Watermark it".

I looked on ByteScout's freeware page and they have a Lite version that is freeware.
