Watermarks to Adobe Portfolio

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

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.

One way, which I am sure you are aware of, is to export a photo from Lightroom with the watermark added.  Then, rather than linking Portfolio with Lightroom, link it to a separate file with watermarked photos.  I know this is an extra step and should not have to be done.  I am an artist and keep two separate albums on Lightroom for each genre of paintings.   The ones that I have done over the years and the ones that I have published on my website.  It would be great to be able to add watermarks in Lightroom to the images in an album rather than the original, but that may be asking too much.

Unless watermarks are digitally embedded into the actual image file (barcoding), they are useless and easily defeated with free software.  I suppose something is better than nothing but it does little to protect you or your digital assets.

I suppose another thought is to never publish anything over 72dpi on your webpage or in Facebook or Social Media.  I have not tried that.  Lightroom doesn't allow you to choose the dpi, just an image quality percentage.  I will give this a try to see whether the image is as readable on the webpage.  Again...the problem is that you have to save it out to a separate file, then import into Adobe Portfolio.  Not as seamless as it is not.  Something should be done about this by Adobe if they are to tout the interrelationship between the programs.  Just my 2 cents worth.
