Now that there are watermarks in mobile app, it would be nice to share or use those watermarks in LR classic with the mobile app. The same fonts are not present in both the programs so I can’t duplicate the style in the mobile because the fonts are different.

I've updated the LR mobile app on my iPhone, but I don't see how to use it. How did you get to the watermark menu?

Hi Darrel,

It is an iOS only feature right now and this page will tell you how to do it:

Hi Rick Spaulding.  I need to add watermark to all pictures in a collection to be shared with a customer. I use LR Classic as well as LR Mobile iOS on iPad and iPhone.  Hence i created the synced collection on LR Classic on my PC, then set my LR Mobile on my iPhone to include watermark, then shared the collection from the iPhone.  However when I preview the shared link no watermarks are displayed.  Grateful for any proposal on how to solve this. Best Tom

Watermarks are only applied upon export, not to the shared URL.

In addition to this, it would be amazing to be able to have my graphic watermark on my images when I sync them to CC from LR Classic CC. This is how I share my images with clients, and as far as I can tell, I have no way to use a watermark on them.

I would like to see this as well. As Scott stated more fonts should be added to LR cc. An ability to import not only fonts but to use a custom graphic for the watermark as in LR Classic. I have created a Trademark Graphic in Photoshop that I use on my images. The matching font that I use is not even available in LR cc so replicating it is not even possible. Using a custom graphic would be the ultimate option I would like to see.

Otherwise, for now the work around is to produce a copy image with my logo on it in LR Classic and sync it through the cloud. It works but adds bloat.
