I can still visualise myself doing this at ease using the method I proposed.
If you are handling the images in 'batch mode',e.g. opening and
watermarking a dozen images at a time, all you need to do is open them all
as well as the watermark image. You then hover over the watermark image,
press CTRL+C and move the mouse pointer over all other images, hitting
CTRL+V as you pass by the windows (focus follows pointer will increase

In my humble opinion, with a brush you will need to do more work. The
optimal solution involves creating a script and running it to add the
watermark to all images from a shell. I have some MATLAB code that does
exactly that. Pixie < www.mosfet.org/pixie/ > can add captions to images in
entire directories too and has plenty of options. If you will be working on
thousands of images in the future, it's worth finding the best tool.
