How to watermark using Adobe Lightroom

A couple of days ago @Plus961asked on twitter if it was possible to watermark pictures using Adobe Lightroom or if there was a need to “upgrade” to Adobe Photoshop.

Having no answers for the question back then I did some research on the issue and found out that it could indeed be done with the LR2/Mogrify plugin.

Here is a highlight about what you will need to use this plugin

Forgot to say that LR2/Mogrify is donationware that means it has a “trial” version that is limited to processing 10 images at a time and you can remove this restriction by a donation.


Now some twitter love

10 Flickr features you’re missing when not using firefox

A couple of days ago I have installed the beta version of Windows 7 to give it a try and it ships with Internet Explorer 8 so I thought I should try that one too.

Greasemonkey is a plugin for the Firefox that allows you to change how web-pages behave and/or look by simply installing userscripts.

Today I will share with you, in no particular order, the list of userscripts I use to customize my flickr experience.
