Lightroom: Watermark your images with sequential names/numbers

A photographer friend wrote me to say that her client has requested that she stamp each image in a shoot with a visible sequence number, making it easy for the client to request shots by name. With an assist from Lightroom PM Tom Hogarty, I can suggest the following:

  • Go into the Slideshow module.
  • Pick a template if you’d like (Tom had me choose Widescreen).
  • On the bottom toolbar press the “ABC” (“add text”) button.
  • From the adjacent popup menu, choose “Filename.”
  • Position the filename over the image as desired.
  • In the lower left corner, choose “Export PDF…” (or hold Opt/Alt to get “Export JPEG…”).
  • If for any reason you want the visible numbers to match the images’ filenames, add the following steps:
    • Choose Library->Rename.
    • Back in the Slideshow module, select a preset like “Custom Name – Sequence.” (You can choose “Edit” to get fancy with renaming tokens, but the presets will likely suffice.)
