Ric Kasnoff: The engineers at Lightroom were really thinking about you here. They know you will be showing your work to clients using the Lightroom interface. So they have given you the option to personalize it. Choose Edit, Identity Plate Setup, if you are on a PC, or on a Mac, go up to Lightroom, Identity Plate Setup, and you will notice a number of different options here. First one being, Enable Identity Plate. If we click on here, we will see that the words that are down here are now reflected up here. So we will simply retype, Rick Kasnoff Photographer Digital Railroad. Come down here, choose our text, and find a font that we actually like. I really like Century Gothic, so scroll up, yeah, there. You see we like it. Its 22, that's a good size. We could actually go in here, and choose a different color font; we can choose colors for the individual words, the separators. Customize it anyway we wanted to, but we are just going to leave that for now, and you can also customize the Module Picker buttons to compliment or match what you did on your Identity Plate.
Next option I would like to show you, is using a Graphical Identity Plate. Come over here and check the circle. Now you can create a Graphical Identity plate with your logo or any special graphics you want in Photoshop. You can have a JPEG, PSD, a TIF, it supports all of these things. What you have to remember is that these graphics have to be 60 pixels high. They can be whatever width you want, up to where the Module Picker buttons are ,but I have created a couple of them in here. Let's take a look at -- okay file, come down to your project files, go into Id_plates, and choose Fade.
You will see I have simply taken a transparent background, put a blue fade on it, typed my name over the top of it. Another one that I created just as a sample, go back into Id_plates, come over to Pick, and you will see here I have taken a number of thumbnails. I have made them 30 pixels high, put my name underneath it, gives it a little more life, okay? Have fun, experiment around, make an individual one for each client you are going to show it to, for each catalog you have. Let's move on.
