Watermark-free renders are subject to limitations: the maximum output resolution is 2560x1440 and the amount of saves is limited to 3 every 24 hours.

Saving a watermark-free render#

When using Clarisse PLE, your renders will always display a watermark by default. You can either use the regular "save" icon to save the image with its watermark, or use the "save PLE" icon to initiate the watermark-free process that is explained in the following example.
