Pasting 1 png onto every jpg in a directory

Pasting 1 png onto every jpg in a directory
I have tried many so called batch plug ins and am now convinced that Gimp plugins are the new "Rick Roll" because not one has ever done anything or even been recognized by the main Gimp program.

I know there has to be a way to just select one transparent png file and paste it onto every jpg in a directory automatically. This of course assumes that all files involved are the same size and shape. Can anyone help with this? Thanks.

I am the permanent noob, so please forgive my stupid question.

I also tend to be horrible at explaining things. So please be patient. I'm trying to learn as fast as I can.

The Imagemagick command can end up quite long and complicated but it is the most flexible way.

Where is it going wrong? Which plugins have you tried? Which OS do you use? There are not that many batch plugins for Gimp.

However
Have you tried BIMP
http://registry.gimp.org/node/26259

example http://i.imgur.com/WnKmu.jpg

The watermark image is showing in Gimp but you do not need any images open to use BIMP. The plugin installs in the File menu. Obviously the watermark image has to be a sensible size for the base images.
