PHPMaster.com has a recent tutorial showing how to use the built-in Imagick extension to watermark your images effectively. It talks about what makes a good watermark and how to superimpose one on your images with a bit of sample code.

He talks about things like watermark transparency, the size of it (how much of the image you want it to cover) and the contrast of the watermark image to make it stand out from the image enough to be useful.
