I've been looking for ways to add text to an LR picture (original/virtual copy etc.) that is to be published (LR term!). LR Mogrify and other solutions I've seen (Watermarks) only work either in specific LR modules (printing/slideshows) or when any sort of EXPORT is involved. What I need however is adding some text to pictures that has to show up after LR has published them directly to a gallery or service. Much obliged for pointing me in the right direction.

You should be able to use LR Mogrify inside a publishing service too. Select the LR Mogrify function on the bottom left of the dialog, then click 'Add' to add it to the publishing service settings.

That is a nice idea but do you want your logo to be transparent?. If so then the job is not that simple. Adding text is the most simplest task in Photoshop but if the watermark needs to a clear watermark then if have to do some trick.

Transparency would be great, Mariah1902, I look forward to see the "trick".
Mind you though : we're talking about LR not about Photoshop!
My goal is not any sort of copyright protection, but merely providing information [including to forgetfull old me ;)]. Transparency probably has the advantage of being unobtrusive and easy to retouch.
