You must know the basics of Paint Shop Pro to follow this tutorial.

Deselect your text by pressing Ctrl+D or going to Selections > Select None.
Crop you image as much as possible without cutting off the watermark.
After you have cropped it. Go to File > Export > Picture Tube
Enter the following settings:
And VOILA! Now every time you want to watermark your images, select it from your Picture Tubes, and use it!
