    Most watermarks you see here in CS are done using Adobe Photoshop. You will need a program that enable to you "layer" your text above the original picture. As for framing, simply create a black background that is about 3% larger than your picture and paste your picture on top of it. This can be done using paint program in Windows of even Microsoft Powerpoint.

    all allow you to use layers. they are free, i.e. the poor man's photoshop.
