This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC: Watermark isn't syncing from Lr Desktop to Lr Mobile.

I uploaded a collection in Lr Web. Wanted to add watermark to the collection. Had to sync it with Lr Desktop. Add watermark. Export it. Again add to Lr Web to share the collection. Is there any way to add watermark to Lr Desktop which directly syncs with Lr Web or Lr Mobile. Adding option of Watermark in Lr Mobile would be just too perfect.

OMG Please add watermarks. How could you not?

Also, there is a need to be keystroke shortcuts. shift-cmd-E to export not being in there is cray. 

Thanks for all your hard work!

Overall, the new Lightroom has a great interface. It is missing the basic functionality that I use to edit.

I can't even create preset folders LOL.

Oh no, you can do that. You just do it in the Explorer/Finder window that opens to add new presets, then restart LR. Only one folder deep still though.

Er, they've been working on the features that even MORE people requested. Text watermarks have just been added to the mobile apps, which means it's definitely on their radar.

Why does this even need a vote. We NEED to be able to watermark our photos. Period.

Lots of things NEED to be done, and they can't all be done at once, so number of votes helps with prioritization. 

I agree it's a high priority for me too.

Watermark please ... it was a regular use tool for me and almost everyone I work with. We use it for not only copyright but other data markup ... daily. 
Enjoy Lightroom CC and its peppiness ... thank you!

It is critical to have Watermarks, and it seems like an easy enough fix. Please help us, and anything else we can do to have it included please let us know!

Thanks

There isn't an "old version". LRCC is a brand new app which was released at the same time as Lightroom Classic (which IS the new version of the desktop-centric Lightroom 6/CC2015). So Classic is the latest iteration of the program that you were perhaps more familiar with, and has all the features that the "old version" has.

LRCC is a new cloud-centric app, probably more targeted initially at the non-professional mobile and hobby user who want all their images available wherever they may be, but do not need all the features that a power-user professional might need. Whether the app develops further to become more attractive to the professional, I guess we'll find out in due course. I know some pros are already using it, but that's probably in a hybrid Classic/LRCC workflow.

Jacqui, 

We all believe this maybe the most important addition to this app.  Why Adobe isn't listening is beyond our imagination.  You would think they have professional consultants telling them this.  I'm looking at other options (software) that can do this better even.  More people need to post the need, I guess.
 Thanks for your post.  Hopefully Adobe will wake up soon.  This can't be that hard to add.  They surely get enough money to pay someone to do it.

Who says Adobe isn't listening? 

If memory serves Lightroom Classic didn't get watermarking until Version 3.0. Lightroom CC is only on 1.1.   There are many features planned but not everything can go into a 1.0 product - or it would never be released. 

Did you ever consider the possibility that those 'professional consultants' are telling them that this feature can wait or even more ominous - isn't needed.  

Everyone thinks their missing feature is the most important in the world. Everyone thinks that all engineers should just stop whatever they are doing and put it in...  The only problem is everyone has a different most important missing feature...

Software development has prioritization and teams have finite resources.

I agree and there will always be debate on whether watermarking is important.
This issue though is stopping some people from being able to use the product because for those who believe in watermarking it is a show stopper.

I purchased this program so that I could add a watermark only to discover that I can't add a watermark! Please add this feature! I am completely perplexed as to why this isn't already an option. As a beginner, how do I now add a watermark to my photos? Thanks!

It's important to do this. I must decide if I put watermark o no, but it's necessary like in classic

Why is this even a debate? What good is a program without a watermark feature? I have just spent a significant amount of time working through thousands of images from a trip and now can't even watermark?  Do I have to now ditch this program and find something else? I won't be waiting long to make this call.

Why would you make a new version of your software and take away features that are part of the classic version. wtf seriously use your brains....Add watermarks for the Apps and the Desktop like yesterday, I can't believe I'm paying for this...it's one of the most important features it should be step one. My thoughts of Adobe have just gone down a lot for something so stupid come on!!

Adam, You are exactly right. I wish I knew how to contact them, but you would think they followed this post. They should have never stopped supporting Fireworks either. That pissed off thousands too!!

This is contacting them and they do follow this post. No doubt it will come but not everything can go in at once.  Remember,  Lightroom Classic didn't get watermarking right away either

Why does mobile have the ability to add watermarks but desktop doesn't? I'd also like to see more options in general for exporting on desktop

I found a great app to add watermarkes.. ironically it's called Add Watermark.  Works great and I use it all the time with my best photos to protect them.

I think we should all call Adobe today and contact their Lightroom Cloud Development team.  Anyone got a number?
