This request relates to an earlier request for handling of transparency, but I think deserves separate consideration.
Many photographers choose to watermark their images with a personal signature block or logo. Some have even paid money to get a beautiful hand drawn signature block like those produced at PhotoLogo. This is one way to help build your brand. There is even a video tutorial for how to do this with Luminar 2018 in which a PhotoLogo signature is used. So yes, it's currently possible to add a layer, import the PhotoLogo, mess around with things (size, placement, get around the whole transparency debacle, etc.)
The issue I have is this is a horrible way to accomplish something that should be simple. I'd really like to see a capability more or less comparable to what's in LR now where the user can define various signatures - either text or images, and specify where they want them, etc. Then once that's defined just export images with that signature selected and voila! All shots have that signature applied in that way (scale, location, etc.). If defining with text is a challenge, then by all means let it be only images - users can easily produce their signature image from some other tool that can handle text and then just use that.
Bottom line - it should be easy. The only effort should be in the time spent by the user defining their signature and related settings, with minimal effort needed to pick that signature during export.
