Are you trying to add a watermark picture? If so, then check that this picture is still available (not moved, not renamed).

Thanks Johan, I'm adding my digital signature. The photo is still available. I also tried it on another photo and same error message appeared.

I am not talking about the photo, I am talking about the file that contains that digital signature. Is that a PNG image for example? If so, could it be that Lightroom can't find this file?

It's not the file that contains digital signature as I've tried to export photo without a watermark and same error message occurs

I don't understand. Are you saying that even if you export without a watermark, you still get the error "Unable to export; Watermarking Failed"?

Then my question becomes even more relevant, not less. Apparently Lightroom checks the watermark even if you are not going to use it, so you must make sure that the watermark image is where Lightroom thinks it should be. Or remove the watermark from Lightroom (and then add it again if you do want to keep it).

Duplicate postings, one in Discussions, one in Bugs.

Oh, and I would not at all be put off if you could delete both of my replys in this bug version.

Is there a bug with LR Classic. I try to export photos and get error message: Unable to Export; Watermarking Failed. This message appears even if no watermark evident. This is impacting on my business

I'm using LrC v 13.1. I haven't thought of resetting the preference file. Please excuse my ignorance as I would not know how to do that
