I'd like to be able to use a Metadata field in a watermark template. This way I don't have to keep creating a new version for each Copyright year and then use that watermark preset when exporting. Much like the Simple Copyright but with the ability to control placement, font, etc.
It isn't possible in the watermark editor built into Lightroom. But you can do it using a Lightroom plug-in like LR/Mogrify. It lets you create text watermarks that include tokens for many metadata fields, including Copyright, so that each image's watermark will be created from its own metadata.
Thanks! I was hoping I had just overlooked an option.
