The below code will create a watermark on image using C#.
 
 

//Use NameSpace
using System.Drawing;
 
 
 
//Execute below code at the event, where u wants Water Marking. 
{ 
           // Create a bitmap object of the Image, Here I am taking image from File Control "FileTest" 
            Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(FileTest.PostedFile.InputStream); 
            Graphics canvas = Graphics.FromImage(bmp); 
            try 
            { 
                Bitmap bmpNew = new Bitmap(bmp.Width, bmp.Height); 
                canvas = Graphics.FromImage(bmpNew); 
                canvas.DrawImage(bmp, new Rectangle(0, 0, 
bmpNew.Width, bmpNew.Height), 0, 0, bmp.Width, bmp.Height, 
GraphicsUnit.Pixel); 
                bmp = bmpNew; 
            } 
            catch(Exception ee) // Catch exceptions 
            { 
                Response.Write(ee.Message); 
            } 
            // Here replace "Text" with your text and you also can assign Font Family, Color, Position Of Text etc. 
            canvas.DrawString("Text", new Font("Verdana", 14, 
FontStyle.Bold), new SolidBrush(Color.Beige), (bmp.Width / 2), 
(bmp.Height / 2)); 
            // Save or display the image where you want. 
            bmp.Save(System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/ 
WaterMarkImages/") + 
FileTest.PostedFile.FileName, 
System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg); 
}

This code will convert ur image to proper format by which u can save ur image to ur database.

private void btnBrowse_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {   
            
                OpenFileDialog openFileDialog1 = new OpenFileDialog();
 
                openFileDialog1.InitialDirectory = @"C:\";
                openFileDialog1.Title = "Select Ur Image File";
                
                openFileDialog1.Filter = "All Files (*.*)|*.*";
                openFileDialog1.FilterIndex = 2;
                openFileDialog1.RestoreDirectory = true;
 
                openFileDialog1.ReadOnlyChecked = true;
                openFileDialog1.ShowReadOnly = true;
             
                if (openFileDialog1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
                {
                    tbUpload.Text = openFileDialog1.SafeFileName;
string FilePath;
                    FilePath = openFileDialog1.FileName;
                    if (openFileDialog1.FileName != null)    
                    {
                        
System.IO.FileStream fs = new System.IO.FileStream(FilePath, System.IO.FileMode.Open, System.IO.FileAccess.ReadWrite);
                        System.IO.BinaryReader binaryReader = new System.IO.BinaryReader(fs);
                        long byteLength = new System.IO.FileInfo(FilePath).Length;
byte[] Attachmnt;
                        Attachmnt = binaryReader.ReadBytes((Int32)byteLength);
                        fs.Close();
                        fs.Dispose();
                        binaryReader.Close();
                    }                    
                }
               
             }      


Now u can store the value of {Attachmnt} through storedprocedure or query into ur database.(But the column where u want to put ur image (Attachmnt) should be type "iamge")

Here i explained it throuth openfiledialog by Browse button,where u will select ur image.

But i have no idea about watermarking through program.
