P: Edit watermark lightroom 11.5 must save as new one even though nothing was edited

In lightroom 11.5 (on mac os catalina 15.7) when i export an image, i select watermark in the export window, then choose 'edit watermark' and then i can select my different watermarks to see which one fits best. In 11.5 whenever i choose a different watermark, it changes to 'edited' and i have to save it with a new name in order to select it. In 11.4.1 and earlier versions, i could select one of my watermark presets that i wanted and click 'done' and that watermark would be applied.

 

The workaround is to see what watermark fits the image best, then cancel (for i do not want to save a watermark preset that i have and that i have not made any changes to), then choose cancel, and then in the export window, scroll to the watermark i want in the watermark drop down window.

Access permissions are fine.  Same as OP I can see the .png watermark in the Edit Watermarks screen, just doesn't export pics with the watermark on it.  Tried on 2 different computers, same problem.

Have just spent 2 hours with Adobe. Didn't relly know what he was doing and made no progress. Appears to work intermittently but always very faint despite opacity being set to 100%

Did you create a new .png file?  I deleted and redid them with my original .png watermark and a copy and had no luck.

I deleted all old watermarks (via LR preferences >presets> other presets. Closed LR and then reopened and then created new watermarks with original png file. Don't understand why but it seems to have worked

Buongiorno, ho installato la versione 11.5 su MacOS 12.5.1. Non riesco più a fare l'esportazione di foto con filigrana png, nella foto esportata la filigrana non si vede. Se la faccio testuale funziona. Suggerimenti?

John,

 

I have not been able to reproduce this on Mac or Windows. Are you able to reproduce and if so, can you get me an updated set of repro instructions?

I was able to reproduce this but as myself and @CumberLinda pointed out above if you Update the Watermark and then hit Done than it seems to work after that.

tout est stocker sur le disque dur principal de l'ordinateur et l'export aussi.

J'utilise un filigrane graphique qui fonctionnait très bien sous l'ancienne version.

J'ai essayé vos propositions et ca ne change rien. Le problème est toujours présent.

Ver 11.5 , filigrane PNG n'apparait plus lors de l'export, l'aperçu oui, mais le filigrane "logo.png" ne s'exporte plus sur les Jpg.... Pourriez-vous apparter un correctif ou une solution dans les meilleurs délais ? Option très utilisée pour le travail. Merci.

I have now seen a couple of posts with the Watermark not appearing problem.

Two suggestions made in those posts were-

1) Redesign the Water mark Presets (as 'new' watermarks), even to the extent of re-saving the PNG from Photoshop first.

2) Change monitor 'scaling' settings- as in this post: Watermark & Font Scaling

Thanks ! je suis retourné à la V11.4.1 pour le soucis.... J'espère malgré tout que le BUG watermark sera corrigé dans une version 11.5.1 car j'ai 25 watermark différents pour diverses sociétés et je n'ai pas envie de tout ré-encoder. 

 

Merci pour le "By-pass"

Hello - Out of curiosity, I just tried exporting a photo from my LR catalog, adding one of my existing .png watermarks. In the export window I carefully lloked at each option. making sure the settings were the way I want. The preview showed my watermark. Then I exported the image and the water mark showed up as planned. I am also on MacOS Monterey 12.5.1 with LRc 11.5.
