I have searched this forum and googled on this topic (may be with wrong key words) and have not found how to leave the identity plate (signature/copyright info) on the photos when exporting them.

Can someone enlighten me on this topic?

Thanks a bunch.

I thought the Identity Plate was just for customizing the software header at the top _ :confused: _ not too sure you can © an image within LR.

Looks like it is for customizing the header.

What I'm actullay looking for is something like a watermarking feature, not sure if it exists in LR myself...

You can watermark them by ticking "Add copyright Watermark" in the export dialog.
Same if you create a web gallery.

I've seen that in the Export Menu but what exactly does it do or where does it show up exactly? I just have my own Photoshop Action I use for adding mine to images.

Under the Library - metadata section you can put in a copyright notice against any image. When you come to export there's an option to include copyright watermark. It will then print whatever you put in the metadata section in the bottom left hand corner of the image.

I've not found a way to change the font, size or colour, but happy enough with the standard offering.

There is no way to change where LR puts it (bottom left for landscape shots, top left for portrait orientation), using what font, or how big AFAIK.

I use an action in PS as well.
