Whenever you create a graphic you never know what size its going to be so the easiest way to use your watermark is to make it into a tube so you can resize it easily, 

to do that , go to FILE - EXPORT-PICTURE TUBE

Click OK.

 Now your tube is in your file .   When inserting a tube onto a graphic  go to your tube tool then go to the  TOOL OPTIONS icon   and you will see the tubes in your folder in the little window

 Scroll around until you find your Watermark, click on it 

 

and size it  according to the size of the graphic you are applying it to

 

if its the wrong size don't worry, go to ....EDIT.......UNDO TUBE.........and start again .

 You can use this tag if you wish

and this is how your Watermark will look

 that's it :o)
