    You must be a mind reader! I was going to ask you how to do this when I got home from work!

    Thanks Courtney! This is perfect timing, as I just purchased LR 5 and am planning to switch over from Aperture (I’ve been using iWatermark in Aperture). I’ve got a lot of learning ahead to use a new editing program but, at least watermarking looks easy :) I appreciate all you share!!!

    Thank you for sharing this useful video tutorial. I need to do this for some of my hubby’s prints that I sell thru my website and Etsy store.

    What if I don’t have a business or even a blog like you? Just use my name I guess? I always wonder about this. But then I feel like I’m trying to be ‘fancier’ (as my daughter would say) than I am. Thanks for everything!

      I don’t think there is anything wrong with using a watermark even if you don’t have a business. I would just use your name :)

    I love how versatile Lightroom is. I hasent been able to figure the watermark so I’ll definitely try it. Thanks for the tutorial!
