I try every new beta of Ligthtroom and the contact sheet print module still doesn't have the facility to identify the job or session unless I forego including my logo on the contact sheet. So PLEASE add one, or better still, two text fields at the top of the page.
I am told by my clients that they use contacts throughout the design process to quickly pick and identify images and then as a reference once the images are archived.
Every other contact making tool out there does this, but it's a pain to have to go to another app just for to run off contacts. So please please pretty please, it's so simple and so logical - make this photographers day and add a text field or two.

Hi Tony,

Did Photoshop's old "Contact Sheet II" feature work for you in this regard?

Hi Jeff,

No, it's even more antiquated, just the images and file names. The LR web galleries and slide shows provide the ability to label individual jobs or sessions, but not contact sheets - strange.

Lightroom Print module is very useful. Specifically, clients love contact sheet printouts with image serial numbers and captions printed under the images! Is there some way to add a custom header line at the top of each page in addition to my identity plate which I currently display at the bottom?

This would be a useful feature for stock image sales requests and also allow for a more professional looking completed assignment presentation.
