Are you talking about adding them dynamically ? ( i guess )

2 options i think:

1) if you have hosting that allows you to run shell, you can use imagemagick utility.
2) if not you probably have to use GD library and change the images from php directly

All images need to be linked thrugh php ( no direct access to the images ) or yet better redirect the request to watermarked image automatically with .htaccess
.htaccess can check if the watermaked image is prepared ( file exists )
if yes - redirect directly to image
if not - redirect to php script that will create the watermarked image.

the php script will create new image combining the watermark image with the original, and saving it so it needs to be done only once.

example of creating the image - http://www.sitepoint.com/watermark-images-php/

I suggest you don't do it everytime image is requested, but save it, as the image manipulation through GD is really memory expensive.

The watermark in the image above is not really "text."  It is a stylized image of a text string.  Here is how you do it.
http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_image_watermark.php

This script uses the images here:
http://www.LAPRBass.com/RAY_add_watermark_source_image.png
http://www.LAPRBass.com/RAY_add_watermark_watermark_image.png

HTH, ~Ray
<?php // RAY_image_watermark.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// LOCATION OF THE IMAGES (COULD COME IN FROM $_GET URL STRING)
$original = 'http://www.LAPRBass.com/RAY_add_watermark_source_image.png';
$h2o_mark = 'http://www.LAPRBass.com/RAY_add_watermark_watermark_image.png';

// READ THE IMAGE AND THE WATERMARK FILE
// MAN PAGE http://php.net/manual/en/function.imagecreatefrompng.php
$im = ImageCreateFromPNG($original);
$wm = ImageCreateFromPNG($h2o_mark);

// ADD WATERMARK USING LOCAL FUNCTION
imagelogo($im, $wm, imagesx($im), imagesy($im), imagesx($wm), imagesy($wm));

// SHOW THE IMAGE
header('Content-type: image/png');
ImagePNG($im);

// A FUNCTION TO ADD THE LOGO WATERMARK
// SEE http://php.net/manual/en/function.imagealphablending.php#77085
function imagelogo (&$dst_image, $src_image, $dst_w, $dst_h, $src_w, $src_h)
{
    ImageAlphaBlending($dst_image,TRUE);
    ImageAlphaBlending($src_image,TRUE);
    ImageCopy($dst_image, $src_image, ($dst_w-$src_w), ($dst_h-$src_h), 0, 0, $src_w, $src_h);
}

I object to deleting this question.  This is a very well understood design pattern, used daily by thousands of sites around the world.  I posted a tested and working code example showing exactly how it is done.  I posted the test data, the complete code, and a link to the script so you can see it in action.  It's all there and it works.  If you have some kind of misunderstanding of the solution I posted, please give us your comments or at least try to work with us instead of just deleting the question.  Thanks, ~Ray
