My watermark (when checked as an option in Lightroom CC) would always appear on my photos. Now when I am exporting (and checking the watermark option) it is not appearing on my exported images. This was never a problem before. Can someone help? I need to be able to export with my watermark for my business.

Please let us know the exact version of Lightroom you are using now? Are you using Lightroom CC Or Lightroom Classic CC?
I have both LR CC & LR Classic CC and tried it on both platforms. Neither would export my photos with my watermark. This has never been a problem before.
LRCC (desktop version) doesn't have a watermark capability yet, so that would explain why you don't see it when you export from there.
LR Classic does, however, so to figure out why it's not happening on your system, start by confirming that your export settings haven't been changed, i.e. check to make sure that the Watermark check box in the Watermarking section of the Export dialog is still checked.
Assuming it is, can you tell us if the Watermark that you're trying to apply is text or graphical or both?
I have both LR CC & LR Classic CC. It doesn’t work in either of the programs. I am checking the box and familiar with LR and the export module. Below are screenshots from each program & my logo (which has always worked before).
I look forward to your help!
I'm afraid your screenshots didn't appear, can you try again? One thing, you need to add them using a web browser, they can't be attached using email.
One other thing, there's still some confusion here about the versions that you're trying to use. LR Classic is fine, but LR CC is the old name that's been given to the new cloud-centric application (which doesn't have a watermark feature as yet). So I'm assuming that by LR CC you mean LR CC2015, is that right?
Also, you didn't answer my question about the type of watermark you're using: text or graphic?
Basically, the screenshots were to show you that I have the box checked when exporting. I have both LR CC & LR Classic CC. Neither will now export my logo on the photos.
My logo is a graphic designed by a designer and has text within it (Palentino & Calibri Light) with a simple design at the top. I imported the jpegs of my logos a year ago. I have used this logo in all it’s variations (light grey, dark grey and white) with no problem for over a year now. It has just recently stopped working.
Is there anyway you can just check my system to find out what the problem is? Is this the only customer service available from Adobe? It is just that I need speedier assistance and direct trouble-shooting.
Hopefully, your next email will be the solution. Also, if there is direct customer service from Adobe with someone I can speak to real time, I would appreciate you sending that my way.
I look forward to your response with hopefully, a solution.
The problem is that this is a user to user forum, so you're not talking with Adobe, just another user like you. If you specifically want to talk to Adobe, you'll need to try their tech support, or post at the official feedback site where some Adobe staff make an appearance (though you're just as likely to get me or someone like me over there). The site is here: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/categories/photoshop_family_photoshop_lightroom
One thing you could check is that the logo jpegs are still in the same location as they were when you set them up (try creating a test watermark using the same logo to ensure that the system can locate it).
You may have just hit on it! I recently moved all my office files from my hard drive to Dropbox, which included my logos. Let me try that!
I very much appreciate your time and let me see if this fixes it.
I am using the one time payed LR 6 and have found that not all fonts is supported. f.i. I used Forte, which is not supported any more
I have the same question, but I just used the text option in Lightroom Classic, and it didn't work on my photo's a few randomly got it saved but 98% didn't have it.
Am I doing something wrong?
thanks, SO much for this info! I have struggled w this problem for months and didn't realize I moved the logo files around while reorganizing my desktop.
i had the same issue, it is quite bit simple, while exporting the file, you have an option "watermark" enable it and the next dropdown list select your custom watermark, export and done. i hope it helps you. it did work for me and i am using an desktop version cc 2019
Hi. I have the same problem. However I noticed that the watermark actually does show up on the exported file, just not on the LR thumbnail within the program itself. When I look at the file in Finder or Photoshop the watermark is there. So it exists on the real file just not on the LR thumbnail. I'm using LR Classic 10.1.1 desktop version. This is definitely an Adobe problem and I wish they would monitor these customer forums and pay some attention to fixing them. Best luck in your search for a solution as well!
