How do I add a watermark across the bottom of a picture?

    I want to put some EXIF data across the
    bottom of my photos as a watermark.

    I can do this with the "Exifer" software
    program, but this covers a small part of the
    bottom of the photo.

    What I really want is to ADD a white strip
    beneath the bottom of the photo and THEN have
    "Exifer" (or some other software) print on to
    this bottom strip.

    I can add the white strip easily with
    Photoshop5.5, but then I lose all the EXIF
    data, so that "Exifer" has nothing to work
    with on the white-strip enhanced photo.

    Can all this be done with some other
    software, bearing in mind that it has to be
    automatic because I have about 50
    photos/batch?

    Please help

    You already said how. batch it.
    1 expand the image at the bottom to the size you want for the white bottom border.
    2 resave it
    3 then call exifer on the images.

    Thanks, but when I do this all the EXIF data
    disappears after the 2nd ("resave it") step.

    How can the EXIF data be retained after
    saving as a jpeg file in Photoshop? I am a
    bit new at this.

    Well only thing I can figure is you aren't talking EXIF data, or you haveit set to remove EXIF data when you save it.
    There's EXIF data and IPTC data.
