I'm looking for a simple yet effective software to watermark a lot of photos in batch.

I have to apply a transparent png watermark image on 400 photos.

The program have to place the watermark at a custom position relative to the bottom right corner of every picture.

I would have done this in photoshop, but the scriptable action doesn't allow me to do conditionnal placing if the photo is portrait or landscape.

I'm looking for a free lightweight program.

XnView can do this, with the batch processing feature.

You select which pictures to transform, from where to where, in which format, and which action(s) to apply to them, including adding a watermark.

And it's free!

Imagemagick can probably do what you need.


I did this for about 6000 photos using FastStone Image Resizer. Also lets you save profiles so you can run it again on additional batches.
