    So I finally decided to make a watermark/logo to put onto my photography. Problem I am facing is that when i try to add the logo to my pictures in lightroom its a block with the white background. How do I get rid of that so i only have the lettering? i'm attaching the logo i created.

    First of all....What program are you using?

    If you are using photoshop, create new document and make sure your background is transparent then save as a PNG file....

    Rookie mistake.:hug::

    You should create it in a vector graphics program like InkScape, that way you have a clean, scalable to any size graphic, for every purpose, forever and always.

    Does it say LC Photography?

    You might want to make it a little more legible.

    What will you do when you need to put it on a dark background?

    i would get rid of the font that your using for the word photography, it looks a little dated, i would suggest using a cleaner more geometrical font, ie ITC avant guard. i feel like it would add to the more sophisticated look that you are going with with your script and think it would be a great contrast to the script font. just an opinion though

    Photoshop has some vector graphic functions, so a vector watermark/logo can be made - http://tv.adobe.com/watch/adobe-eva...gos-for-watermarks-and-overlays-in-photoshop/
