Hello

In order to prepare my portfolio I would like to sync in cloud photos managed in lightroom classic cc with watermark.

I haven't find how to do it. Is it possible ?

Thank you for your help

Thank you but it is not what i'm looking for.
I know how to add watermark during a file export.
But i want it for a cc sync to be able to add my lightroom album directly in my adobe portfolio website with the watermark.

Yeah, I looked for that also, but didn’t find a way. If you’re worried about piracy, just leave off the “Lightbox” feature (in Settings) so they can’t click a photo to see it full screen. Nobody wants a 1” image!

So what would be the purppose of a portfolio with only 1x1 images?.
My concern is less about piracy than the fact that no one will know who is the photographer when that image is viewed out of context.

@dvince94
Heres a workaround until Adobe gets its ears out of its azz and listen to what we KNOW we want insted of trying to harness the kids with tablets (who wont pay a subscription anyway because they are broke and whatever money they get its to buy weed)

On export with watermark enable "add to this catalog" and LR will reimport the image. You can then select and make collection for sync.

No purpose at all, which was my point, but apparently I wasn’t clear enough. With Lightbox for Images off, they can’t screenshot your image to steal it, but clients only see a small version. That may be good enough to get an idea of what you do, for some.

Are you thinking of watermarking in the direct download or watermarking as an additional overlay during on-screen slideshow presentation (to prevent casual screen-shots)? I was told the team is considering supporting the latter for Lr CC shares.

For me... watermarking as an additional overlay is close to useless and provides a false sense of security.

I think it would be better to have a watermark directly during CC share it also can be useful if someone want to share a Lr CC catalogue through the public url
