Most photo editors will do this
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / June 18, 2008 7:48 PM PDT

Like Adobe's Photoshop, or Paint Shop Pro. Very often retail computers with Windows pre-installed will have a trial version of some photo editor or other already installed.

If you use Google to search for Add watermarks to photos you may find some free utilities.

if you are using photoshop or gimp, create layer of text, set the opacity to 15% or as you wish
