By carefully setting up and proofing your images in Lightroom, you can create prints worth sharing and selling. Author Tim Grey continues his exploration of Lightroom, this time in its Print module, and shows you how to print contact sheets and individual images, add watermarks and text overlays, create picture packages, correct inaccurate prints, and save print jobs for future use.
This course was created by Tim Grey. We're honored to host this training in our library. Watch more courses in this series here.
Among the various ways we're able to mark our images when we're creating a print layout, is to include a watermark. So, for example, if we're preparing sample prints that we want to show to a client, we may want to include our company name or website address as a watermark for those images. I'll go ahead and scroll down on the right panel in the print module, and we're going to take a look at the page section, because within that section, there is a watermarking check box. I'll go ahead and turn on that check box, and then I can click the pop up.
And, I can choose among my various saved watermarks, or go to Edit Watermarks if I want to create, or modify an existing watermark. I'll go ahead and choose TimGray.com, for example, and you can perhaps just barely see that we have a watermark in the bottom-right corner. If I decide that perhaps a watermark is little bit too subtle, I can go into the water mark editor, and then change the settings for that water mark. For example, in this case, I might want to increase the opacity of the watermark, so that it appears a little stronger in my printed output.
But the bottom line is that I can come into the watermark editor, and fine tune the text and the overall layout for that watermark. I'll go ahead and click the save button, and then I'll update this. With TimGrey.com still indicating that that is the text that appears, but with bright meaning that it's a little big stronger in opacity, so now I can see that that watermark appears a little bit more clearly. So, just by turning on the watermarking check box, and then selecting an existing watermark, or creating a new one. Or, even modifying an existing watermark, we can then have a watermark that appears automatically on our printed output.
