I've created a text watermark and its visible on the screen, however when I export the edited photos the watermark is not there. What am I doing wrong?
To create a watermark, you need to go to the Output tool tab and select the recipe. In the Watermark tab of a chosen recipe, specify all the necessary settings.
You can add a watermark when processing variants as JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and PSD files. In the latter case, the watermark will be included automatically as a separate layer and can be further edited in Photoshop.
NOTE: Watermarking is not available for processing variants as DNG files. If you try to do that, you will get the error.
When applied to variants, the concept of exporting and processing is essentially the same. As Capture One always works non-destructively, your source files are copied and any adjustments made are applied using a file format chosen in the Process Recipe tool.
When it comes to watermarking, it can be applied only during processing but not exporting.
If you go to File -> Export Images -> Variants from the main menu, you will notice that there is no Watermark tab in the Export recipe.
