Watermark export action for Adobe Lightroom

20090127_watermark_1I watermark my photos in my photoblog using a little script (yes, I know this…). My workflow so far was

  1. export the photos from Lightroom
  2. open finder, go to the export directory
  3. open a shell in the directory
  4. run my watermark-script for the exported pictures

Well, this is annoying. But there is a gentle solution: Platypus! This great piece of software turns every Shell/Python/Perl/Whatever script into a little Mac-Application which can be used as export action in Lightroom.

To create your own export action using Platypus, just open the application and point it to the script path using the „Select“ button. Platypus is smart and will fill in more essentials:

20090127_platypus_1

Now press the „Create“ button and select the Lightroom Export Actions directory. It is usually
/Users/yourname/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Export Actions
Open Lightroom, select the pictures you want to export and press the Export-button (or Command Shift E). At the bottom of the export dialog you find the postprocessing options. The „after export“ combobox should now display the newly created export action:

20090127_export_action

Now press „export“ and watch what happens:
20090127_exporting

That’s it. Great isn’t it? 🙂 Here is my watermark-script. It needs exiv2 and imagemagick:

I’m living in the backyard of this building for nearly nine years now. It is decayed and somehow romantic. I love to come home through this hall full of graffiti.
The building is sold now, all residents left. In a year or so, it will be just another of this renovated buildings without a soul and rentals nobody can afford…
