Batch editing of images

I have several images of products and I need to add a disclaimer at the bottom of the image. Is there a way to do a batch process or script?

You could define a "stamp" with the disclaimer under the "Image" ribbon tab, "Stamp" button, then add it manually to each image by pressing the down pointing triangle next to that button and selecting your stamp name. A batch operation would be also possible with HyperSnap 8 command line parameters in a .bat file maybe. I don't recall the exact syntax right now, would be worth doing that way if you had hundreds of images to stamp like this, for something like several (about 10?) best to just do it manually.

.bat command line parameters is what I am after. Is there a tutorial or how to that I can look up?

Hello Ron,

there is  page describing the commands for HyperSnap here: http://www.hyperionics.com/hsdx/CmdLine.asp
A German, slightly updated version can be found here: http://de.hyperionics.com/hs/commandline.asp
Greg also published another macro-oriented feature in HS8. You can find it in the appendix of the HS8-manual.
For immediate access load this file: http://www.hyperionics.com/hsdx/docs/HyperSnap8Manual.pdf
and go to page 121. Topic: Paste Keys Editor and Syntax

If all this does not help, I recommend googling for a free software. I used the parameters "batch image processing freeware" and found - among many others - ImBatch, which can add watermarks (without transparency) in batch mode.
Did not look further as I don't know your specific needs.

Thank you, Thomas, for reminding me of these resources! I did not update the command line parameters in a long time, and added some in the meantime. One such parameter that is not described there is -stamp followed by the stamp name. So the complete command line to stamp image could be like this:
 
hprsnap8 -open C:\MySnaps\snap1.png -stamp StampName -save C:\MySnaps\stamped\snap1.png -exit
 
It would stamp and save the image without showing any window. Don't forget to enclose in double-quotes if any names contain spaces... if hprsnap8.exe is not in your system PATH, then you would need to use the full path\filename for it.
 
The simplest way to apply to group of files, under Windows Command Prompt: Enter the directory with saved files (C:\MySnaps in the example above, and "stamped" sub-directory created), then execute:
 
for %f in (*.png) do hprsnap8 -open "%f" -stamp StampName -save "stamped\%f" -exit
