Lightroom mobile: Graphical or Image Based Watermarks on images

  • 205
  • Idea
  • Updated 1 week ago
  • Planned
  • (Edited)
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.

Just to add another voice to the choir. I would really like to see a watermark feature added to Lightroom Mobile. It is one of the things that holds it back from being a truly mobile alternative for me.

This is a must have in the export options from each platform, if im going to continue using this program long term.

Another voice to the choir. Such a basicfeature missing in the version of the software that is intended for quick edit-share flow.

For some people, there is no sharing without watermarking.

A popular idea! I merged it with the rest and changed it to an idea to give it more weight.

Thanks, Tiera!

Are you joking Rick? This thread itself is 3 years old! How much more "weight" can this change give it? Are you implying that no one at Adobe has looked at this in all that time?

As the originator of this request,  and having previously occupied Rick's current position, I can assure you that Adobe is aware of the request. Every vote helps but prioritization of features is a complex process. Without limitless resources, not everything can be done at once and sometimes it takes a long time.

As a full time pro doing a lot of sessions, it would soooo help my workflow for the mobile system to be an expanded system for my client to select and receive full res images once done. Now, because of only being able to like and comment on images, I often wind up with people selecting a large number of them to work on. If they had access to a rating system that they could filter down, it would allow them to make multiple culling passes. It is also easy to miss if they come back later and like more images. Once I edit the images for my clients, I have to use dropbox or a gallery on my website to get the full res images to them. Would be great to simply trigger a full res upload to them through LR.

Hey, Reggie! It may seem like merging posts is simply burying them but it's how feature requests are prioritized. If we don't merge them they don't get counted. 

Whether or not they make it into the next update depends on how many other serious issues precede them. The popular stuff usually makes it sooner of later so go ahead and click that little "Vote" box in the upper right of the screen. That's how it works!

Cheers!

Please make this feature available. Where is the consistency (where appropriate) that Adobe has always advocated?

Thanks, must be an iOS update. Android has "Preferences" option, not Settings and ability to add a Copyright, but not to customize. Will keep an eye out for someone with Android to get the update.

Maybe you just need to manually check for updates like this:

First click on the three dots...



Does that help?

Looks like my iPad is not compatible with ios 11. A replacement is a bit expensive for just this feature when all other functions work. I personally would prefer the feature to be made to work in LR Classic desktop (Windows). It's there for web galleries so why not with 'Synced collections on the web'?

Synced Collections are not output files per se' like the Web Galleries.  They are designed to be proxies for originals so that you can continue working away from your desktop.  A better option might be to get them into the sharing features via the Lightroom web environment.

This thread is a combination of about 10 other threads.  It has been open for years in some cases.  I personally have had my thread combined at least 5 times over the last 3 years.  So what the original poster asked for is highly irrelevant at this point considering not all OP requests were tracked as threads were joined.

It is a copywite mark not a watermark.  So it shouldn't be closed period.  We combined numerous threads into one and Adobe delivered the bare minimum of what one customer asked for.

A point of correction: A copyright notice can be a watermark.

Can be but isn't in all cases.  It may suffice for some but not all of us.

What you type into the field is entirely up to you. It's a text-based watermark, some people choose to put a copyright, others their website, and others their IG handle.

We are still working on a way to add an image in addition to text.

Keep in mind, software, esp on mobile, are designed to evolve over time. Option 1 is wait for a long time to get everything, option 2 is to get parts over time. In this case, that meant that the text-based watermark was possible to be done much more quickly than an image-based one, so for those that can benefit from text only, they can already get the benefit.

@jhaftel I appreciate that it is a process. And it is a good step forward. The point I was trying to get across is that this was not the ask of many of the requesters that were consolidated to this one thread. In addition we are asking for something that a $1 app on the App Store can do. It cannot be technically difficult.

@jhaftel You said "so for those that can benefit from text only, they can already get the benefit." I don't see anything when I save the edits. My app is updated and is running on Google Pixel phone. Is it apple phone only for now?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Image-based Watermark on Lightroom CC mobile, Collection-Export.

Luckily one of the updates of LRCC mobile last year added a text-based watermark-feature. But what about a image-based watermark, like on the desktop-versions? I still miss this feature...
Also i would like to export more than 15 picutres at once... it‘s frustrating if you have about 200 pictures to export... I‘ve started to work with LR on my mac years ago but for mobility i bought a ipad pro and use LRCC on it. works pretty well, but some improvements are need to be done. I would be happy to see a full-functional LR on the iPad soon.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Implement actual watermarks in Lightroom Mobile.

I'm glad that you have implemented a copy write mark for Lightroom mobile but it is not a watermark.  Many of us have a brand we are marketing under and our logo is a part of that marketing.  Please implement actual watermarking not just an ability to put our name on the photo that leaves out the brand marketing of our company.

It will be nicer if i can add a fixed logo ( ex. Dr. Girish photography ) by default to every photo i click. With little creative design options will be better. Like different styles, placement of logo etc before u click the photo. Also please dont detoriate the quality of photo. Please add different options for saving photos in HD and other lower versions.

It would be nice to have watermark presets available at the export stage, so we don't have to go from the image in the edit panel back into the settings every time we want to alter it.

I would like to add/upload my own created watermark in lightroom cc. Then applying it when using iPad / iPhone to take photos but as well if uploading or sharing my photos in various ways. Not only the standard text written through the app. Please :)

Really hope this picture-based option gets implemented. The current app options to do this are ad-ridden and as a paid CC subscriber I'd hope to see this in Lr Mobile rather than have to pay for another app.

Definitely need image watermark support if this is to work as an alternarive to Lightroom Classic CC.
