    When I go to File>Export and go to click the watermark box, it's not clickable.
    I've never had this issue before and can't figure out how to rectify it.
    Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    In your screenshot of the Export settings, you have specified "Original" as the Image Format in the File Settings panel. Because "Original" is simply a copy of the original file plus metadata, anything that changes the pixels (such as Image Sizing, Output Sharpening and Watermarking) is not allowed. Hence those options become non-selectable. Change the Image Format to something other than Original and you'll be able to add the watermark again.

    Oh goodness, what an easy fix!
    That hid from me quite easily.
    Embarrassing!
    Thank you so much!
