Hi, I set a copyright on my photos and saved them as jpegs.

I inadvertently deleted my original raws.

I now need to get the copyright off my jpegs to print them.

I have been spending hours editing it off - but I notice, that when I load the jpegs into LR, the images are displayed first, and then the copyright mark seems to be overlaid.

Is it possible that it is not embedded in the jpeg? and that there is an easy way to remove it?

Hmm, I'm not sure what you are seeing...when you Exported the jpeg with the copyright as a "Watermark", it would have "burned it" into the image. If you Export an image with Exif, that goes into the jpeg "header".

If you open the jpeg in a generic image "reader" does the copyright show up? If so, that's what you get...

Don't delete your Raw files!!!

Yes- copyright still there.

What happened, it was a dance show - I burned last years (feb 2011) this year, and mislabelled the disc 2012. I then looked at my discs to make sure I had a hard copy and deleted the 2012 raws.
It's the first time I have exported from LR and put a copyright symbol on at the same time. I usually have 2 copies of jpegs - one without and one with which I post online.

It's strange though how Lightroom loads the jpegs - the images are displayed first in filmstrip below and the copyright. Symbol seems to follow a few shots behind.

Ah well, must carry on with photoshopping it out!

Thanks for reply.

Certainly won't do that again

Tried recovery on my imac but got nowhere - I have mac keeper but it eventually hung as did other ones I tried so I gave up in the end. The trouble is, I 'm not sure i put them on my imac - I may have put the photos straight onto my 2TB external (where i keep the raws - usually) and I think I would still be here next year trying to recover a drive that size!

My iMac has only 4g ram (2008) so I tend to keep all,photos on externals with firewire 800.

Try out the SanDisk ResquePRO, it's probably the best out there. Send me a PM and I will give you a free one year lisence

Well, if your photos have meaning to you, then think of the Raw files in the way a film shooter would think of the negatives, but beyond that, the Raw files are like the undeveloped film. If you toss your negatives you no longer have the ability to get the best print. With your Raw files you can go further and re-process a shot from "scratch".

Like I said, this is for photography that has meaning to you beyond just a "job" or some such thing. Otherwise, why bother shooting in Raw?

Because it is the electronic equivalent of burning your film negatives simply because you have paper prints to look at.

That loses you any future ability to take advantage of any future RAW processing improvements, and it also loses you any ability to re-interpret a shot (e.g. making a sepia-toned version; or making a low-contrast version of the shot)

That's funny - I save my raw files and delete my jpgs after I've done what I want with them - print, load to the net, email, etc. If I need one at some point I can just export it from LR again.

But I would certainly try to recover your raw files. All may not be lost but it will take some time to find out.

Um thats a pretty strange thing to do. Most who are serious about there images make multiple backups of their raws, i know i do. I even go as far as making multiple backups and not deleting off my cards till the next shoot, just in case.
