Lightroom Ecosystem: Graphical & Image Based Watermarks on images

When outputting any image from Lightroom mobile directly to any service, the image needs to have, at minimum, a © NAME simple watermark placed upon it. I don't think we need full functionality of the Watermark editor in Lightroom desktop but we do need the minimum functionality of the Simple Watermark in Lightroom's Export dialog. Until there is a way to mark an image, why would anyone consider using LR mobile to post anywhere?

NOTE: The original post was a request for a simple, text based watermark which has been implemented. This thread will continue to be the place to vote for image based watermarks. 

Edit: 1/21/2020  - This thread has been changed to represent all three of the Lightroom Ecosystem Clients (Desktop, Web, and Mobile) 

Edit: 5/15/2020 - This thread has been updated to include information on new functionalities. Please see the official post below.

Where is the option for easily adding watermarks to our images export from Lightroom Mobile. Sending out images immediately from a Mobile application is the benefit of mobile for goodness sakes. Not having this options seems to me the application is virtually useless. At least for me it is.

Without the ability to add a copyright watermark or at least a name it's not really usable by professional photographers and I would imagine most enthusiasts would want to protect their work.

actually the "full" functionality is required to a certain degree for corporate identity reasons. I won't publish images without he logo known to many of my followers.
The app is quite useless now for me. I can't use it to edit meta data, I can't use it to export and share, I won't use it (due to iPad's limitations in terms of usability) to edit images.

I just discovered the syncing collection feature with LR 6. I was thrilled as it seemed a great way of offering a preview to clients through the private website link AND have them hot sync their choices to me remotely. The selection process with clients is always a hassle and a way of streamlining it would be seriously helpful to my workflow and business. HOWEVER, I MUST have the option of having my watermark on the images. While I have clients whom I trust not to download and post unedited images, I have many that I don't trust.

Honestly, I really do not care at this point about LR mobile. Its really not a part of my workflow. Thus, I had never discovered this private web link and hotsyncing functionality. I shared my info in a photographer discussion group and they were unfamiliar with it too. THIS is a VERY important feature for pro photographers. Honestly when I stumbled across it, it was the first thing in LR 6 that excited me. PLEASE add it.

Lightroom Mobile needs to provide a way to add a water mark when sharing to social networks. I currently must save the picture to a file on my mobile device then use a separate App to add the watermark.

I just spent 3 days reorganizing my entire photo collection to use with Lightroom Mobile so I can start sharing out my work while on the go, only to find out there is no watermark option.
Why would Adobe send us to an outside app like ArtStudio to do what can easily be done in their app? I just don't get it, Adobe.

This is definitely a feature that should be in the Lightroom Mobile app.

The silence from Adobe on this is very telling. This is a critical feature that would go leaps and bounds in making the UX in the mobile app something that is worthwhile.

Currently, for my quick shots that I post from social media (behind-the-scenes stuff from shoots), I have to do light edits in the app, save the image and then pull into another app to add a watermark.

If I can't do it one step through the program I am editing in, then it ain't happening.

In fact, I will just use LR Mobile for mobile portfolios.

Hi! Why don't you add a "watermark" option on Lightroom Mobile? It would be really needed when posting images from Lightroom mobile to social network. At the moment I'm forced to save the image into the camera roll, then open another app (there's even the direct "open in" into lightroom for watermark apps) to watermark it. Thanks!

W.T.H.

Watermark should be something shared accross all CC applications.
