Hi, I am using Lightroom to stamp my photos. I am a event photographer and since now I 've been using other software to stamp my pics but I want to turn in lightroom. The problem I have is that it does not support (as far as I have searched and found) multiple watermarks. I need one watermark for my logo and one for the event organiser I photoshoot. So we have two png images. What I did for the first time is I exported the images with my logo and then load them again and export them with the event organiser's logo. I don't really like the proccess. How can I export in just one time both logos?
Make one PNG file with both logos in it.
There's all sorts of reasons why this isn't a great answer unfortunately.
I've come here looking for an answer to the same question, but there's nothing here that answers it.
In my case (and I suspect the same of the OP), the two logos I need to put on my images (I wish I didn't have to, but sponsors and all that!) don't balance together.
One needs to go in the top left, the other needs to go bottom centre.
I'll be shooting in portrait and landsacpe and will be cropping some images in different aspect ratios depending on their fit.
This will be for a sports event and I'll be exporting nearly 1000 images once the edit is complete.
So unfortunately just putting both logos on one file doesn't fit work at all. Nor does using the Print module as others have suggested.
The only way to fix this would be for Adobe to develop a small update to the export module to allow placement of multiple images on the final export.
I hope someone from Adobe will see this because I've needed this feature loads in the past and exporting, then reimporting only to export again really isn't an ideal workflow.
One method is to use the Print Module and add both a watermark and an Identity Plate. The Watermark could be your own personal logo, the ID plate could be the client's Logo. Finally, print to a JPEG file rather than the printer.
Does the second logo for the event organizer change? If yes, you could Export twice... it's not an elegant but it will work. Joe's suggestion of using the print module might be a little more streamlined however if the second logo is the same then one png with both logos as JSM suggests is the simplest approach.
OR, adobe could add a feature to add multiple watermarks. Waiting years for this, but they still never do it.
I use lightroom extensivly for event photography and got really annoyed by LR's watermarking system and is failings. The main program is briliant an upexporting phoitos d for me nothing touches it so i end up exporting photos and then use a great little program called TSR Watermark for the watermarks, it allows upto 9 individual watermarks and fives full control over them. Work on batches as well and slips into my LR workflow so good.
