It’s pretty easy to add text to your photo layouts. Photoshop Lightroom can automatically pull metadata info from your photos and have it appear on the photo print, or you can add your own custom text (and/or Identity Plate). Here’s what you can add, and how you can add it.

First, a little setup: We’re going to use U.S. letter paper size, but go ahead and click a wide photo in the filmstrip. Make sure that the Auto-Rotate to Fit checkbox is turned off; then grab the bottom cell margin and drag upward as shown in Figure 1 to move the photo higher up on the frame.
