Does anyone know the best way to create a watermark on a transparent background?  I've been able to create a watermark on an individual photo.  However, I'd like to design a watermark that I can use on every photo I create.   Selling my photos online is my goal; but I don't want to post any photos unless they have a watermark on them.  Zenfolio allows its users to add a watermark.  If I could create a single watermark on a transparent background, then Zenfolio would add the watermark to each photograph.  I haven't had any luck using the clipboard.


Also, is there a way to create a macro of a watermark?  That would be helpful because you could create a macro and then use in batch processing.


Could anyone shed some light on this issue?  Any feedback would be appreciated.
