This is something I've needed to do for years, but it's seemingly been impossible in LR to this point, so I wanted to see if I'm missing something.

I do stage photography and need to put watermarks for myself, say upper left corner, and then a watermark for the show in bottom right. Images will be a mix of landscape and portrait mode. I shoot about 10,000 of them, so it has to be fast.

Is this possible somehow now? LR support for watermarks is incredibly poor (or has been). I have LR 6.4 on an iMac.

You would need to create a graphic logo as a PNG file that has the required components in the correct location for your export. You will need one for landscape and one for portrait images. Ideally you will also create this image at the correct pixel resolution to match the output files you are creating. I would probably do this in a vector graphics program, since then it will be easy to resize.

Then in LR you would select all of the landscape images and export with the correct graphic watermark selected, then do the portrait oriented images, I'm sure that LR can sort those for you.

Since you have LRCC you should also have access to PS, and I would think that it would be much easier to use PS to add the watermark after doing the export from LR. It should be relatively easy to automate the adding of both graphics in the correct location. Doing one save to a good quality JPEG should not harm the quality, but you could export from LR as a TIFF and then process that image, which would then incorporate the conversion to JPEG too. This would be my method of choice if I needed to do lots of images.

You need this: https://www.photograph​ers-toolbox.com …grify2.php?sec=​quickguide (external link)

Mogrify will do everything you need and more. Multiple graphical watermarks on a page (and text too) and portrait/landscape is handled automatically.

When I had to do that, I "cheated" and just integrated both my watermark and the troupe's watermark into a single png. Works for portrait and landscape in a single export.

I haven't used Mogrify but I've read good things about it.

LR 5.7 had no trouble with this. No other tools required.

Mogrify is good, but the problem is the results cannot be seen until the export has been run - which sometimes you may need to export with mogrify enabled several times to get desired output....

Doesn't work when you need to use a graphic, rather than just a text watermark though.

Ok, I created the X and Y in PSE 12. Saved them both as .PNG files. Added them as watermarks using only LR 5.7. Now that I know it can't be done, I'll stop doing it. :)

EDIT: The X and the Y are two separate and distinct .PNG files.

I'm reasonably certain that you can apply as many .PNG watermarks as you want in LR5.7. Seems odd that 6.4 doesn't do this.

Yep. LR 5.7 will let you put up multiple watermarks. No problems. Got 5 on this one. No problems. Well, except my artwork really sucks.

Bassat are you sure you don't have an extra watermarking plugin installed? I have tried it in both LR4.4 and the latest LRCC release, as I have both installed on my system. Using the Edit watermarks dialogue that is found under the Edit menu it is only possible to select one file, be that a JPEG or a PNG.

No plug-ins. I don't use watermarks, so this is all new to me. I just played with the 'watermark' check box in the export dialog. Seems straightforward to me. LR 5.7.

Just came across this, don't see this being possible in LR 6+
