Creating Watermarks in Lightroom 5

On this Adorama video Mark Wallace takes a look at a very basic but important task – adding a watermark (basically your own “virtual signature”) to your images in Adobe Lightroom 5.

There are lots of ways to add a watermarks and you can create very different signatures both inside Lightroom itself (for example by adding and styling text) or by importing  an external transparent PNG file (for example a logo you created in Photoshop).

We have already covered how you can add a watermark in Photoshop in a previous video by Jen Swedhin and our colleague Howard Pinsky did his own version on adding watermark into Lightroom a few months ago.

You can find many more Lightroom tutorials on our dedicated Adobe Lightroom section.
