Using Custom Text in Lightrooms Slideshow Module

In the Slideshow Module press 'T' to bring up the Toolbar and select the 'ABC' button. This will allow you to enter a variety of text information which can be displayed as the slideshow plays. Depending on your choices you can display a custom text string about you, or your company, image numbering, image name or a selection EXIF or IPTC data.

The Edit selection from the drop-down dialog box allows you to build up any combinations of the above. You can have as many of these text boxes as you like and they can be positioned anywhere in the frame or image surround.

I like to place a Caption text field in the lower right which changes as the individual images are viewed. See below
