Summary:

With the advent of digital photography and the Web came one of the major benefits, sharing photographs online, to be viewed instantly by people around the world.

This has, however led to people's photography being used without their permission, thereby depriving them of potential financial reward and credit for their work. One way to help prevent this, is to watermark your photos. We've all seen photographs with either some text, or a logo, superimposed on a photograph to identify the photographer. Using an image manipulation program, such as Adobe's Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, it is possible to add a watermark, but without some considerable technical know-how, it's difficult to add one to multiple images.

This is where Adobe Photoshop Lightroom comes to the rescue. In this tutorial, Mike Le Gray will guide you through setting up Lightroom so that you can batch-process your completed images, not only adding a watermark, but also converting color-space, file type, adding sharpening, etc.
