Hi all,

 

I seem to be having difficulty here. My question lies at the intersection between Lightroom CC and Adobe Portfolio.

 

I am using Adobe Portfolio for the first time to replace a website I had on Sqaurespace. I like the feature of LR that allows me to manage albums in LR and have automatically uploaded to website with optimal settings. The collections are great like that.

 

Is there any way to get the images from collections to upload to Portfolio with a watermark attached?

 

Thanks

#1 Adobe Portfolio is a separate development team from Lightroom.  If you want to bend Portfolio's ear, submit your idea to the Portfolio team directly.  If it's viable and enough people ask for it, they may add watermarking to the platform.

Hi,

As far as I know, it's unfortunately impossible to add a watermark automatically on Adobe Portfolio when adding pictures form a Lr collection.

I've seen many people asking for that feature, which I would welcome too.

Unless it has changed recently and I missed it, for now it seems there is no choice but to export with watermarks and use those to upload to Portfolio.

Thanks,

 

That kind of sounds like it defeats the purpose of using a collection to add photos to the web page. It is supposed to be simpler.

I can't believe this still isn't an option. It's crazy.

Watermarks must be flattened into a single layer.  I use Phothoshop to add watermarks & optimize images for the web before uploading to Portfolio.

#2 Watermarks don't protect your copyright.  They are easily removed with a variety of tools.   If you're serious about protecting digital property,  use digital watermarks (aka barcodes) which are encoded into the image file & invisible to humans.   Barcoding won't prevent theft but it will give you an idea of who is doing it and where the image is being exploited.

 

For added convenience, there is a barcode plugin freely available for Photoshop below.  Digimarc service fees are extra.

Hope that helps.
