Please please please add the watermark feature to the desktop version of lightroom cc, so many of us photographers are calling out for it and have been for some time! It is already on the mobile app it just needs adding to the desktop add. This would make the whole experience alot more enjoyable and save me a lot of time

The mobile app is text only. We need graphic watermarks as well. Many of us have logos.

This seems to still be something many people want, and it wouldn't be a bad thing to add. I currently have to export my pictures to another program, (Lightroom classic cc) add the watermark, and then re-import them into Lightroom CC. I use Lightroom's photo sharing service on my website to display my pictures, so the final photo has to be in Lightroom CC for upload. I would just like to not have to jump between programs to simply add text to the bottom of my picture. Especially if Lightroom CC on my phone can export with watermark, why can't Lightroom CC for desktop.

As a brand new photographer im trying to maintain my brand integrity and the fact that I can't add a watermark with supposedly the best photo editor around, is seriously frustrating.

This is totally unacceptable. How can you offer a platform to a photographer that doesn't include watermarking (graphic or text)? People have been screaming about this for over two years. This seriously needs to be added ASAP.

This is absolutely unacceptable for such a notable company for the industry...especially when they're charging money to use it!! I'm trying to get my business started and it's an impossible mess trying to get my branded logo or watermark on my photos before saving them, sharing them to social media, or updating my website.. not to mention sending to clients. I started with Lightroom CC and am sad I spent so much time training on how to use it. When I finally get done editing a photo, I have to wait for it to import into Lightroom Classic. Then export it. Then upload it BACK to Lightroom CC if I want to access it from my mobile devices (50% of the time)..... Now I have duplicates everywhere and a mess from the different file names. I can't even begin to develop my own workflow with this disappointing app in the mix.. I grew up watching both of my parents use old-school photoshop, so I'm a loyalist when it comes to preserving the veteran companies, like Adobe, in the graphics community, but i'm also a millennial and can't even begin to make headway with my own business or any branding/marketing without this feature.... Right now, I am running out of patience waiting for this feature to become available before giving up and investing my money and time on a new editing program. Until we get answers on when this will be added (coding and interface is already there for LR classic.....essentially, copy and paste it developers!) i'll be adding reviews and letting my community of young professionals know that Adobe is worthless. I've been an Adobe subscriber for 3 months, and it didn't even take me that long to decide it was worthless without the last step of branding upon export. As a 27 year old, I can tell you right now that our future photographer's generation needs efficiency and efficacy, especially if we're spending $200+ on a computer program (which we wouldn't be using if we hadn't already spent the $$$$ on cameras, lenses, equipment, etc.).... Please make my life easier. Please include this in the next update for this summer. I'm done waiting to post the work i'm proud of because it takes forever to get my watermark on there :(

Hey everyone! I got sick of waiting for Adobe to add this, so I made a web app that can add watermarks to multiple photos at once and export the results to your PC. It's completely free, works on all web browsers, works offline, and has similar watermark options to Lightroom Classic. You can export your photos from Lightroom CC, import them into PhotoStack, pick your watermark, and export again.

You can try it out here: https://photostack.app

This would be a greatly appreciated update. Although given how long it’s rumbling on. I don’t hold out much hope for it coming soon

This is just sad. I honestly don't even know what Adobe engineers are working on at this point, the point of subscription services is they were supposed to actually add in features, not remove them. Cool they want to be ahead of the curve on mobile devices, but unless they're expecting to be making tons of profit from the $1.99 per app basic consumer world, they need to realize they're supposed to be developing for professionals. Professionals depend upon watermarks for visibility and (basic) copyright protection. 

This is no longer "beta", it's been well over 2 years, if they aren't implementing a feature as basic as this I honestly hope professionals think long and hard about when they're going to bite the bullet and move to a "more professional" product (you know, one that can add a watermark, like Microsoft paint for ----'s sake).

When will you upgrade to allow logo watermarks in Lightroom CC??

Sad to see priorities are not inline with customer requests and needs. With recent upgrades made regarding shared folder filtering etc but STILL no updates to the basic watermark feature in LRCC and not allowing a logo watermark to be added to images.

With my upgrade last year to LRCC (have purchased LR since version 2) i was going to remove my subscription to shootproof for image sharing and downloads. They have a wonderful system that allows you to select logo, image etc and switch on and off at any time including to existing uploads as well as a built in online cart feature that allows you to link to preferred printer (that are aligned with SP) or for customers to purchase digital dowloads direct and options for file size and with or without WM.

This would be a good feature to add into CC for the $$$ we pay each month.

Looking back I see that customers have been asking for this crucial feature to be reinstated for more than a year. Still no roadmap or projected date for this to be corrected? Pretty appalling.
