Lightroom CC stopped exporting with graphic watermarks

Jan 21, 2021
Lightroom Version
11.0.1 Lightroom Classic
Operating System
  1. macOS 12 Monterey
Anyone else experiencing this? I have been using this for years and have presets set up and now all of a sudden since the last update Lightroom will not export my graphic watermark with my images. I have to physically go in each and every time and make a new export. This is making me nuts. It has been fine for years. Lightroom CC.

I suggest you Create a new Watermark Preset in the Watermark Editor, again choosing your graphic image.
It has been known that the Graphic Watermark loses its connection with the Graphic file. (For sure if the file has been moved, renamed, deleted, file system changes, etc.)
Also check your Export dialog is creating a file format that will embed a watermark.
Not sure how "make a new export" will fix the problem. What changes do you make?
