  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In our books, Adobe Lightroom - The Missing FAQ and Adobe Lightroom - Edit Like a Pro you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    Lightroom Classic us based on the folder-based version of Lightroom and Edit Like a Pro is based on the cloud-native Lightroom desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in 6.
  • It's Lightroom update time again! Color Grading and improved zoom across the whole Lightroom family, plus graphical watermarks for the cloud-based Lightroom apps, as well as the usual new cameras, lens profiles and bug fixes.

I seem to have a case of stupid when it comes to the nameplate being printed on my photo's. I normally sign exhibition prints, but I have a bunch of letter size proofs that i will have to loan
to a gallery for future work. I have successfully used the nameplate thingy in the print module, but somehow it is not responding. The only printing I got was in the middle of the photo.

So are you using the Print module to print to an attached printer or using the Export dialog to export to have printed at a lab? And what's 'not responding' about the 'nameplate thingy' (what? watermark? identity plate?)

herb,

You probably want to use Watermark instead of Identity Plate. The Watermark Editor allows you to specify roughly where on the image to apply the watermark. There is no way to specify that for the identity plate. The plate always goes in the centre.

Huh? I hardly ever use it, but last time I checked you could place the Identity Plate anywhere you want, even underneath or above the image (if you use a template that doesn't fill the entire paper with the image).

Johan,

You`re right. I didn`t realize you could just drag the I.P. wherever you want it. So that`s probably what the OP needs to do.

Ok, sorry to be obtuse, Victoria- I am printing to an attached printer, and want my identity plate (watermark?) to show up in the lower right corner of the image, i.e for copyright issues. The print module is where the "thingy" is located. I was able to move the identity plate before, but somehow it is showing up in the middle of the photo. seems like I have the watermark and identity plate comingled?

If you are trying to use the Identity Plate, then just grab it and drag it where you want it to be.

If you are using 'watermarking', then choose 'Edit watermarks'. At the bottom of the dialog you'll see an option called 'Anchor'. That's where you set the position of the watermark in the photo.
