I have a large collection of Books. I have all pages in JPEG format. I want to apply a text of My website transparent on each page. I have made an image by the help of Adobe photo shop. But its very difficult for me to apply on each page as it will take alot of time. If anyone can suggest me for a software that could solve my problem. Thanks in advance.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

In Photoshop, you need to "Record" the action of you watermarking one and then you can apply that same action to a number of photos. It might not be super fast, but it'll automatically do the work for you. This talks more about it:

Also, if you Google Batch Watermark Photos in Photoshop, you'll get a ton of tutorials.

EDIT: No problem. Also, this might actually be a much easier tutorial to follow and it contains images - that usually helps me anyway :) Glad to have helped answer your question. I know Photoshop can be amazing, but harder than heck to use sometimes.

Wrong place to ask, voted to move to superuser.
Anyway, you might want to look at ImageMagick, if you are not afraid of the command line.

This would be my choice too - I once set up some scripts for Imagemagick for a photo agency to create thumbnails for their stock images and also to produce copies with a watermark - it whizzes through whole folders in no time at all. Sadly I don't have copies but the commands weren't complex and there's online howtos for this kind of stuff – Linker3000 Apr 28 '11 at 20:53

You can use IrfanView for it. Use the Batch conversion. There is an option to insert text.

Use XNconvert to add a watermark quickly

  • can add transparent watermarks
  • can process thousands of files with a single click
  • watermark position and opacity can be adjusted
  • tool is portable (follow these instructions on how to create a xnconvert.ini) enter image description here

Note: You need to create a template watermark file once.
