I have been thinking about water marking my photos for a while now.
Though I have mixed feelings about doing it.
I think that there are times it can take away from the photo.
But, I would like to water mark some, both for copy right purposes, and to let others know I took the photo.

Whats the best way to water mark? Besides just manually doing it in PS?
I would like to find a way to water mark a batch of photos at once.
Or, at the very least, setup some sort of template in PS to make it faster.
I also would like the water mark to be the same on all my photos.
So I was worried about just manually adding text in PS, as it might not turn out the same each time.
Just looking for a soft, faded edges, white/black text.

Also, what is the law, etc, on copy rights?
I was under the impression that I didnt need to file anything for it.
That if I took the photo, and water marked it with my name, that was sufficent.
Am I correct?

I haven't used it, but IrfanView will overlay text. If it does what you want, I doubt you will find anything simpler (once you figure out the batch process) or faster.

If you have PhotoShop, just use its batch process.
