Hi Bruce,

The Layers page has some examples (
https://wiki.contextgarden.net/Layers#Place_labels_on_pictures) and the
Collectors page as well (https://wiki.contextgarden.net/Collectors).

Some MWE:

\starttext
\definelayer  [figure][width=\overlaywidth,height=\overlayheight]
\defineoverlay[figure][{\directsetup{figure}\tightlayer[figure]}]
\startsetups figure
\setlayerframed[figure][frame=off,preset=rightbottom]{\copyright\ 2022}
\stopsetups
\externalfigure[cow][background={foreground,figure}]
\stoptext

\starttext
\definecollector[example]
\setcollector [example] {\externalfigure[cow][width=4cm,frame=off]}
\setcollector [example]
[corner={right,bottom},location={left,top}]{\copyright\ 2022}
\composedcollector{example}
\stoptext

Adam
