I'm trying to upload a saved graphic watermark to my photos in Lightroom 4 but no matter what I do, I can't get the white box around the watermark to go away. I've already tried saving the watermark file in PNG like other sites suggested but it does no good. Other sites tell me I need to save the watermark in another version of adobe and check the box "transparent" but Lightroom is the only version of adobe I have. Any help ASAP would be greatly appreciated!!!
Step one: Make sure your PNG file actually has some transparency in it. If it is already on a white background, it will save with a white background. You must create a graphic on with transparency.
Step two: When saving a PNG with transparency present you have to tell your software (you don't mention what you were using) to enable transparency.
It might help if you posted your PNG file here so we could take a look. Also, let us know what software you are using.
I have also been trying to solve the same problem. Where does one take an already created watermark and make it transparent? I have Photoshop on my old Mac and e-mailed my solid white background watermark to myself, opened it in Photoshop and "erased" the white background. Transfered it back to my Lightroom on my MacBookPro and exported the test photo w/ the "erased" background watermark. I had no idea if it would work….it did not. OR : How does one create a transparent watermark? I have a graphic I want to use w/ my name. Please HELP!!!
