    Transparent Watermark not working, background turns white

    SheaMichelle

      I have been sent a TIFF logo for a company and need to watermark some photos. I would like to do this via LR. I have version 4.4.

       

      I loaded the file into PS6, in order to change it to a Jpeg OR PNG.... to upload into the LR watermark edit area.

       

      I am unable to find PNG as an option in the "Save As" menu. So I tried "Save for Web".. I was able to save the file as a PNG, and when opened off the desktop, it does appear to be transparent. However, when uploaded into LR watermark graphic area... it suddenly has a white background again.

       

      I am seriously ripping my hair out. I have watched a zillion tutorial and read a bunch of recommendations... and it's still not working.... HELP ME PLEASE. There is obviously some little detail or setting that isn't the same...

       

       

      NOTE---> Not option for PNG in Save As menu....

      SAVING AS PNG IN THE "SAVE FOR WEB" MENU... (I also tried selecting PNG-24) .. neither worked.
