Personalizing identity plates and module buttons

You can personalize the Lightroom interface, slide shows, and printed output using identity plates that include your name and logo.

  1. Do one of the following to open the Identity Plate Editor:
    • Choose Edit > Identity Plate Setup (Windows) or Lightroom > Identity Plate Setup (Mac OS).

    • In the Slideshow or Print module, click the Identity Plate preview in the Overlays panel and choose Edit from the pop-up menu.

  2. In the Identity Plate Editor, select one of the following:
    Use A Styled Text Identity Plate
    Uses the text you enter in the box with the font characteristics that you specify in the menus below the box.
    (Mac OS) To create a multiline text identity plate, press Option+Return in the text box. Lightroom displays just the first line of an identity plate to the left of the Module Picker. However, all lines appear when the identity plate is selected as an output overlay in the Slideshow, Print, or Web module.

    Use A Graphical Identity Plate
    Uses a graphic that is no more than 57 pixels high that you drag into the box. The graphic can be a BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, or TIFF (Windows) or JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, PDF, or PSD (Macintosh). The resolution of graphical identity plates may be too low for printed output.

  3. Choose Save As from the Enable Identity Plate menu, and give your identity plate a name.
  4. To display your identity plate on the left side of the Module Picker, select Enable Identity Plate and choose one of your saved identity plates from the menu to the right.
  5. In the pop-up menus in the right side of the dialog box, customize the font, size, and color of the Module Picker buttons. The first color picker box sets the color of the current module, and the second box sets the color for unselected modules.
