Parents asked me if they can watermark their photos. By "watermark" I mean a small signature in a corner.

I made Phatch scenario which they run they need. But it looks like Phatch breaks rotation EXIF tag and scaling is not very advanced too.

So I'm looking for a tool that will allow non-technical people to watermark images. Preferably, with automatic colour picker (it should choose invert colour for watermark).

OS X has a good example -- Bronson Watermarker.
