I have a Pixma Pro-100 and am using A3+ 13x19 paper. I'd like to print an image using the entire 13x19 sheet, but leaving a white border of about 3" around the image. I'd also like to type a title beneath the image, similar to what you'd see on a poster.

Is there any way I can do that in LR5 or the photo software included with the Canon printer? I can't seem to figure it out. Is there another software I should look at? I'd like to keep it simple, nothing fancy.

Thanks for your help.

The look I'm trying to achieve is similar to the typical motivational poster, but with a white border, no frame around the image, and large black text beneath the image describing the photograph or give the place taken, etc. Similar to this (free website), but hi-res TIFF and customizable (different fonts, size, etc.)

Not sure if there is a better way to add the text, but I know it can be done using the Identity Plate, although it's not really what it was intended for :) Photoshop Elements or CS6 are better tools for doing a quality job for something like this.

I just played around with a 13x19 in the print module and the 3" border really shrinks the image size.

Here's a screenshot of what I could come up with (left 1.5", right 2.5", top 2", bottom 2"). Sorry for the horrible screen print quality ... :

There's a plugin for lightroom called LR/Mogrify that works well for this. You can see how it works at http://www.photographe​rs-toolbox.com …grify2.php?sec=​quickguide (external link)

I also use Mogrify, works great with exporting images in bulk as well.
