    Yes

    You have to create a JPEG first, all it does is load that and allow you to place it on the image with various opacity

    Yeah tried making one in microsoft paint then saving it as a Jpeg but it imports the background not just the graphic, which meant a great big white stripe across the bottom of the picture. I was after a graphic with no background so to speak.

    GIF can have transparent background, JPG can't.

    As far as I'm aware JPEG's don't support transparency, the GIF image format does, however that has a very restricted colour palette.

    The PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file format is a more modern replacement for GIF and also supports transparency and has a much larger 24bit colour palette. Or 32bit including an alpha channel... I think.

    GIF and PNG can have transparent backgrounds (alpha channels), JPEGs cannot. I would suggest, if there's any real colour in your watermark, that you save it as a PNG as GIF also only supports up to 256 colours.

    New layer, Text Tool , Seelect your font & size, Alt 0169 Gives you your copyright symbol, type your name or whatever, add a stroke ,outer glow or whatever you want to dress up your signiture crop and save in the brush presets. that way everytime you want to add you copyright signiture you go to your brush ,,click in the area of your image and lo n behold your copyright Sig appears !!.
    can reduce its opacity, colour n size all too easy as you go..
    Hope this is what you were after and i havent ranted on reading your query wrong!!??..
