One of the most common questions we receive on Photo Workshops is “How do I add a graphic logo watermark?” Having an eye catching logo as your watermark on a photograph does look more professional than a simple name. In this short tutorial we will walk you through the way to create a watermark using Adobe Lightroom.
One thing that you will need to start is a logo! This tutorial doesn’t cover the art of creating a logo. Although you can use the jpg of the logo as your watermark, we suggest that creating a transparent background will work best. For information about how to create a transparent background have a look at this easy to follow video.
Once you have your logo ready, it’s very simple to use Adobe Lightroom to add it to your photo. We use a series of screen grabs to show the steps needed to do so.
And that is all there is to it! By creating a watermark preset, or series of presets, you will save a lot of time. There is no need to go through all of these steps each time. Please let us know if you have any questions about it. If you are interested in learning how to add your copyright to the image as well, have a look here.
