Lightroom is not longer exporting when watermark option is check DIRECTLY following the recent update. I waited forever to do the update because I heard bad things and immediately I am having trouble. Any ideas on how to fix this? I would watermark in PS and bypass this issue altogether to just to get the job done, but PS corrupts every file once the text tool is used. Adobe has asked me one question regarding this with no help to resolve. Frustrating to pay for a service that is no longer working and you depending on with no help from adobe.

Below is a image on what PS does to my images once the text tool is in use. I have re-started the compute, and run PS with out any other programs or web pages open. For the LR issue there isn;'t a screen shot to include since the image just exports without the watermark altogether.

Thank you to anyone who can and will help.

For your Photoshop issue, it looks like you're on Yosemite. Go to Preferences>Performance... and uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" and restart Photoshop. The problem with the bad driver should go away.

Are you using a Simple Watermark, a text-based watermark or a graphic as a watermark?
