Lightroom Ecosystem: Graphical & Image Based Watermarks on images

  • Idea
  • Updated 5 days ago

  • (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. 

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

I’ve just started editing my images on the iPad Pro and need to send them to publishers however I can only use text based watermarks. For the last 5 years I’ve used my logo and this looks like a set backwards professionally. Can you please add PNG watermark capabilities.

And idea that you could place a .png picture as a watermark and maybe freely place it to the picture and save it as an sample so it goes for everypicture the same

I would suggest that in the same way you can create a custom watermark by uploading an image (e.g. my logo) on PS Express you should be able to do the same on Lightroom.

from what I've been reading , adobe is wanting to pony up an additional 120 A YEAR to get the ability to add a watermark? This seems insane.  why can you do it in mobile but not on a desktop? creators have been asking years for this... they've proven they can do it with the mobile version? I guess adobe really doesnt care for creators

So what does it mean when it's been marked as "planned"? Do we get this feature in weeks? months? I'm planning to get an iPad so I really need to know will this be available.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Seriously, no watermark option on desktop.

Just subscribed to Lightroom CC, wish I had read these posts first as a major requirement was to be able to add my brand new logo to my photos.  Will read your posts on workarounds but they seem labour intensive and frustrating.  Hopeless Abobe.

Really need this ability to add my custom logo as the watermark when sharing from Lr mobile, not just a plain text one.  Hard to believe it hasn’t been implemented yet, especially now that iPadOS has the Files app that allows us to have the png file accessible on our iPad.  Surely this could be easily implemented and rolled out in a minor update to the app.  Can anyone from Adobe give us a sense of whether this functionality is coming or not, and when or why not?

Need to be able to add custom watermarks in Lightroom mobile, watermarks that you have purchased or made. They need to also have a transparent background.

Lightroom Mobile is the only version of Lightroom I use. However there's no option to import a custom logo. I don't want to use just a text watermark, I want to use my own custom watermark. Can this be implemented? It's a deal breaker for me

I just learned, thanks to your customer support (excellent btw) that the creative cloud LigthRoom Version (2020 CC, version 3.0) does not have the watermark feature, but the "classic version" does.  

The solution is easy, because you can download the "classic" version and it has it, but the 1/2 hour spent trying to find that option, looking online, looking on your help menu and not finding it, is always a frustrating experience. Therefore, it would be helpful if you would indicate when launching the program for the first time, that the watermark version is not available, with a link to a version where it is. Regards!

Please can you add a proper custom watermark feature for Lightroom Mobile (import of a PNG or other image file) so I can use my actual website logo like you can with Lightroom Classic. The text-only based watermark looks generic and amateurish. Thanks.

Graphic Watermark in Lightroom and Lightroom Mobile (not just Lightroom Classic) 100% needed for Photography users; It is so time consuming to do these one by one on a mobile device through PS or have to wait to be home to use a desktop.

Hello Adobe Lightroom friends I have several ideas that you may like.

1.- Link watermark of Lightroom mobile version with the PC version, so that in all the photos it is the same watermark and has the same parameters and does not have variations between photo and photo.
2.- In the version of Lightroom mobiles place the option of several watermarks of both the same company and several as they have it in the PC version, since I handle the design of several companies.

Greetings from Mexico City.

Hello,

Can you add an option to Lightroom Mobile to add an image as a watermark, in the export menu?

Just like Photoshop Express has.

I only use Photoshop Express to add my custom watermark, which is stupid.

PLEASE, Adobe! Add the ability to either import custom watermarks or allow users to import new fonts to sign their work!
