Photography Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional, enthusiast and amateur photographers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to place a small logo in the bottom of about 100 images at onces.

Is there a cool, free and easy program I can download where I can do this?

I basically want to place a signature watermark in all of the 100 images in 1 location.

Thanks in advanced!

On what operating system? ImageMagick or GIMP come to mind, but I'm not sure they they fit the "easy" bill, since they do so much more than that... (ponder) –  lindes Dec 1 '10 at 18:46
    
If it is a text, Irfanview (batch mode, advanced options). –  Leonidas Dec 1 '10 at 21:08

I use FastStone Image Viewer:

  1. Once you open the viewer (if you opened it in a single picture view - press ENTER to open Manager), you can select any number of pictures you want
  2. Then follow the menu Tools / Batch Convert Selected Images (or just press F3)
  3. Click Advanced Options button
  4. Open Watermark tab, and place a flag on Add Watermark checkbox
  5. Adjust it as you want and click OK
  6. In that window you can specify some other settings also
  7. Press Convert

Picasa is probably the most popular program that can also do that. It has a simple GUI interface. Here is the Google help page on how to use it.

You can also use NConvert with you own script or have XnView generate a batch file that will call NConvert for you. NConvert is command line, so you need to do the calculations for exact positioning (how many pixels to from edges).
