Tech Tuesday: Lightroom 3 watermark

In past versions of Lightroom it was always frustrating not to have a watermark feature. I know there was the identity plate but it was cumbersome and clunky. If you wanted to watermark you had to open the photo, in Photoshop, adding one more step.

Now with version 3 not only do we have a watermark feature, it is editable and can be added right at export.

To access the feature to edit go to Edit>edit watermark

Once you click it the user interface will open

There you can type in what you want for your watermark or select a simple copyright symbol

From the drop down menus you can select any type style from the list

Since I use Celtic styles for my blog, I chose another Celtic style

You can go down the checklist and adjust to taste, even adjust the color

Once you are happy just click save

Then when you open the export dialog you can scroll down and check the option to include a watermark and which one to use. You can have multiple watermarks available. I hope you give this feature a try.

    You make that sound so simple. I finally figured it out, I think. I just did not realize that the watermark does not show up until I export. And I was not checking the include a watermark on the export dialog.
