How can we automate to add Watermark into 1000's of images

I have 1000's of images in different sizes in many folders and want to add my logo on top left side and i have a strip with my website name and need it in the bottom. Can anyone help me with automating this and get a free tool to achieve this.

uMark has a free version that accomplishes this: There are versions for Windows & Mac OS.

uMark is batch photo watermarking software. It allows photographers to add visible watermarks to their digital images in a snap. You can use uMark to watermark hundreds of images at one go with your name, logo, copyright information, EXIF info, shapes or QR codes. uMark also facilitates bulk resizing and renaming of images.

I use irfanview for almost all of my photo editing. This tool is free and can convert between most image formats. It can also do bulk modifications on images, one of them being adding a wartermark.
I second Joseph. Irfanview will do it. Use Batch Conversion option and go to Advanced.

I agree with the choice of Irfanview. But since no OS was mentioned, I suggested uMark since it works om Mac & Windows, whereas Irfanview has no Mac version.

Furthermore, Irfanview allows you to overlay text, but no images, like a logo.
In Irfanview if you use the Batch Conversion option and go to Advanced you can overlay an image.

It is usually safe to assume a Windows OS if the OP doesn't mention otherwise.

Thanks akb - I hadn't noticed the overlay an image option!
