  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

If you want a lot of flexibility in writing captions for your image, the "Identity Plate" feature on the Page pane in Print module offers far more options than "Photo Info."

Under "Photo Info" you can alter the font size, and that's just about it, and the caption appears in a fixed position at the bottom of the image.

If you use "Identity Plate," you can choose among many fonts, and alter both font size and color. Then, when the identity plate appears in the photo, you can rotate it, and drag it to any position in the margins: a custom caption, exactly where you want it.
