Posting here is contacting the Adobe Team directly. They are keenly aware of this feature request already. Remember, Lightroom CC is a new product and not everything can go in at once. If it did, you would never see it.  The best thing you can do is to hit the Vote button at the top and add useful commentary on what you need. 

That said, Adobe seldom, if ever comments upon upcoming features until they are ready and released.

Thanks Rikk!  I have heard that for a while.  I really hope you are right.  They just need to hear how important this is, and should have already known.  There are so many tools not as important in a world of online photography. Protection is #1.   I believe this has been noted for over 3 years now!  The free market system is already beating Adobe in many aspects with other products and services by very small businesses.  They are just not combined in one place.  I know full well being new to the Adobe platform, this wasn't my first option and the price is now starting to weigh heavily on the monthly package...  This should not have to be a consumer driven need to be recognized as an issue.  Adobe is holding itself as the experts.  We are just the end users.   Granted these are great platforms and all, but when I can use a different free product or app that does things better.. that's saying a lot.

This is the Lightroom CC forum not the Lightroom Classic CC forum. Lightroom CC as of yet does not have watermarking.

Another user who spent hours editing on the admittedly pretty decent new Lightroom only to find out she couldn't watermark. I only switched because Lightroom Classic wasn't syncing with the cloud and I'm on a deadline. I'm pretty irritated.

Yea, Join the crowd!  And welcome to the group of "Oh what the hell, Adobe?"  I see post come in everyday about the watermark feature..and try to contact as many as I can, to say... hey their is an App for that.  I'm using for both ios and android..  Other than that I have to hand place them "Custom watermarks".   Believe me they are getting complaints across the board!  ON EVERYTHING!

You can watermark on mobile, why can't you do it online or on pc.
Also: If you download pictures via your personal website, why aren't they watermarked?!

You would think that after people take the time and effort to leave such an important notice to Adobe, they would get it and put it out in their newest release.  However, this has been going on for a long time.  I'm currently using an app to do my watermarks.  Now I have two apps because I work on both platforms.. ios and android.  I don't just want the capabilities for a text watermark either.  We should be able to add a png custom signature watermark.   I wonder maybe they are busy making another 10,000 new text fonts.. LOL   I can see Adobe getting their asses kicked in this market real fast.  They do not have it going on in the industry.  They do not hold market share anymore either.

I might just cancel my subscription, without png watermark export, this is useless for professionals.

I love using Lightroom CC. But I am really missing the option to use my own watermark graphic like on Lightroom CC classic. Thank you.

Yes! Please add a watermark feature! I think many who use Lightroom are those who love photography and love to share them, but also do not want others to steal the photo from us. Thank you so much in advance Photoshop!

Well, LightRoom CC Mobile has complete support for text based watermarks, but the Desktop & Cloud version doesn't. Gotta admit it seems a bit confusing. For me it's not terrible since I do most of my editing on my iPad Pro; but I still have to go to the Desktop version on my Mac to assign location information. Would be nice just keep working from my Mac and export with Watermarks; but alas it's not there yet. I'm new to Lightroom so not sure when it was added to mobile, so maybe it's not a long wait for it on Desktop and Cloud.

Looks like you still can't watermark from your computer and only use a text watermark from mobile--not a graphic watermark. I had just jumped into it to have a play but there no point if I can't watermark from the computer.

Dear Adobe,

This is real simple, you promoted migration to a new system based on new cloud features. You did not inform your customers, many photographer enthusiasts that you eliminated a critical feature. You did offer new packages, but this increased monthly/annual fees.  With all the time you spend on lawyers on terms of use and policy, it is surprising that we need to inform you of intellectual property rights. I've started my 90-day clock and as a consumer I have the right to switch. Watermark comes back or its off to a different platform for me.

I am pleased to see the watermark in Lr on my IPad, however having it as a graphic/file import would be ideal of course. I trust you are looking at all options and use cases. I hope to see it soon in updates!

Guess I'm late to the party of discovering there is no watermark feature in the new Lightroom.  Put me down for a MUST HAVE feature.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Watermark PC Lightroom CC.

As many people have stated before, and remains unresolved, there is no option to place a watermark/copyright info on photos prior to publishing. I understand there are other programs or that I can use LR Classic, but I see this as a major fault in that CC is presented as a one stop shop. This can't be a difficult feature to add, please resolve this.

Are you kidding me!!!!!! I just purchased a new version of Lightroom and there is no ability to add a watermark????? I want to use some expletives here but I'll try and control myself. This is the dumbest thing I can imagine. It's mind blowingly stupid. Every photographer I know uses watermarks and I'm not going to waste my time explaining why. GET A CLUE and add this function immediately.

With the damn slow import of Lightroom Classic cc and lack of the watermark in Lightroom CC I'm about ready to jump ship. The lack of watermarks is causing me to go to Bridge then Photoshop and I really am slowed down a lot. Plenty of options out there now. Goodbye Adobe.
