I spent all farking night on this, so I thought I'd write it down so that I don't ever have to go through this again. Also, if anyone else out there happens to stumble onto this, all the better. It certainly seems that this is something many want to do, but there's so little info on how to do it, so…

Here's how to create a transparent watermark to apply to photos before uploading them to the internet:

Notes: At first I was trying to figure out how to save my transparent watermark as a gif -then I found out that .gif files can only have one transparent color in them. This means you can't make the entire watermark transparent when saving as a gif -you'd have to live with opague text and a transparent background (or vice-versa, but that's just dumb). But if you want the entire image to be transparent, you must save as a .png file.
