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.

Can you please post a screenshot?  This update may not be available in Canada yet but as of now I still only see the options for the text watermark as an option.

Chris, I just looked on LR on my iPhone, and still only see the text option, no gear. See screen shot.

The graphic watermark is v6.0. Check your current version. It may not have updated to you yet. I just checked mine and I’m still on the previous version. Hope this helps

My apologies, I was looking on desktop. I see the same on mobile (Android) and I don't see the graphic option either. 

Here's what my desktop LR looks like with the graphic.

Is that desktop or mobile? My screenshot is mobile app. But I got a notification of “what’s new” and it says v6.0 mobile app includes watermark. Maybe they are doing the update in waves. It has not reached me as if yet. I’m in the US. Not sure if that matters lol but, we shall see 🙏🏾

@Annette Matthews  that was desktop. Even after uninstall/reinstall don't see the graphic option. Maybe soon for me on mobile, I'm in Canada so maybe that has something to do with it... we tend to get the short end on delivery times :)

@Annette Matthews @chris_rockwell_jhhms43r7cild  I'm in the U.S., see it on iPhone and iPad, but not on laptop version. Nice that it's finally on the mobile devices, but really need it on laptop for travel and remote editing.

@Rikk Mobile, version 5.4.1 - No graphic option, Desktop (Windows if that changes anything) v4.0 - Graphic option. 

So the mobile is because the version is behind, Removing/reinstalling did not update so maybe it'll be in soon but with the desktop working that works for me!

@Rikk okay now I have it on desktop version. I did a complete uninstall including settings, restarted, and reinstalled. I'm on version v4 for desktop. This is awesome, a big help when working remotely. 🙌🏻

Thank you so much for commenting. I would have likely missed this new feature. So pleased this is now done. I had to use affinity to add watermarks which was a faff. 
My mobile hasn’t updated yet but about to check on the Mac. Really happy. Thanks for listening Adobe. Can’t wait to try it on my photos as had a logo made for me then found out LR wouldn’t do it !! Spot on 🤩

@anne_thompson_17oqaigjzckio uninstall and reinstall. If you have an iPhone, at least, it worked for me and someone else in the thread. The reinstall will pull thru v6.0 🤗

How does this not have the option to store multiple graphical watermarks and switch between them? Four years after this was first posted and Adobe gives us the minimum basic functionality.

I made the PhotoStack web app two years ago to solve Lightroom not having graphical watermark support, and it has been able to store (and switch between) multiple watermarks since v1.0. I guess I'll have to keep using it, because my work requires me to use different WMs depending on the project.

Hey if you add a folder in iCloud with all of your logos inside you’ll be able to switch back and forth that way. That’s how I do it . I have 4 logos that I use and I just switch out that way
