New Macbook pro 16 inch and new version of lightroom (installed this week).  All works great unless I want to add watermark upon export of photos.  Will not work with JPEG or raw photos (I've tried both).  I get dialog box that "watermarking failed."  What am I missing??

First comment- You cannot modify raw image files- so naturally you cannot 'export' a raw file with a watermark.

For a JPG export- Are you using a Text or Graphic watermark?

If a 'Graphic'- Is the graphic file in a folder where the export function can find it?

Post some screen-clips of your Watermark Editor to show us how you create a watermark.

 

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 12.0.1 Photoshop 24.0.1, ACR 15.0, Lightroom 6.0, Lr-iOS 8.0.8, Bridge 13.0, Windows-11.

Thank you!!!!  I realized the problem.  I was using a jpeg file as a watermark.  Once I converted that file to png, it worked fine.  Problem resolved!!!
