watermark for images
first of all thank you very much for gimp.

this might sounds like a very easy task for experts, but im struggling with having a watermark for all my images.

what is the easiest way it can be done?

i just want one watermark that i can put on any image on my website.

Thankyou very much for reading my post.

RE: watermark for images
Nobody here is involved the Gimp development Smile

Add a new layer to you image and move it to the bottom. Fill it with pure 50% gray (R,G,B=127,127,127). Using the text tool add your watermark text to it. Then select again the image layer, and use "Filters/Map/Bump map..." using the gray+text layer as the bump map. Adjust other settings to your convenience.

If you need to do this on many images, investigate using the ImageMagick toolbox (also free software), in particular its 'compose' command that has a 'bumpmap' option.

And remember the rule: the size of the watermark is proportional to the photographer's ego, and inversely proportional to his talent, so keep it small (200x50px max, and 20% of the largest dimension (if that makes its so small to be unreadable, it means that the size of the picture doesn't warrant a watermark)
