Watermark a photo without exporting

I would like the ability to watermark my photos with out exporting them. After I process my photos I will add them to my collections folders. This then syncs with my mobile LR app and I know have the photos available to me on my phone or iPad. If I want to post them to IG or FB they do not have a watermark. Would it be possible to add a feature to allow us to watermark the photos without exporting so that once I watermark them I can then drag to my collections folders? Thanks.

You can check the box marked "Add to this Catalog" during export to add a watermarked version of the file back for use in collections synced to your mobile device.  This could also be done via a Publish Service.

Hi Rikk thanks for the help but it did not work. Screen shot is above. Photos are watermarked on my desktop folder but not in LR mobile photos. I was also hoping to keep the photos in a specific collection rather than LR photos. Any ideas what I did wrong? Thanks.

Hi Rikk....it worked...I just noticed under Catalog on the left panel a new item " Added by Previuos Export". Photo is watermarked and I can drag to a collection now. Thanks for your help.
