Watermarking your images is one of the best ways to protect them, discouraging people who might be tempted to download your photos and claim them as their own. Lightroom has made it incredibly easy for anyone to apply a watermark to their images before they export them, with options for both simple copyright watermarks, custom-designed texts and even personal logos and graphics.
Here we’ve broken down watermarking with Lightroom into 4 easy steps!
- Select Edit Watermarks From Lightroom.
- Decide Between a Text or Graphic Watermark. If you want a graphic watermark, upload an image. For both text and image watermarks, you have the option to change its size, position, color (for text only) and add special effects such as shadow and transparency.
Save the watermark. Give the watermark a unique name so you can identify it when you're ready to export your photos.
Export your photos and apply the watermark. Scroll down until you see the Watermarking option and select the watermark preset you've just created. Click on Export and that's it!
You're done! You’ve protected your images in just a few clicks with a custom-designed watermark you can use again and again.
