This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Provide ability to print metadata

When will we be able to print our meta data with our images in the Lightroom print module. I want to be able to place Titles, Captions, date / time, location under an image using a pre defined template, where I can select font type, size, justification, etc... I do not want a half baked version of an Identifty plate.

With out this basic feature the Print Module is incomplete.

I am bitterly disappointed that we are at version 4 and this basic need is not satisified. I was disappointed it was not in Version 1, then Version 2........ We now have books, but cannot print a single image with a professionally formatted type template.

I think this is a great idea. We have these capabilities in the Slideshow module, but why not the print module?

You are 100 % correct. The tools are already inside Lightroom.

I have Photoshop, could achieve what I want in Photoshop, but it is an extremely manual and labour intensive process, prone to error,,,,, not appropriate for producing high quality professional finished prints.

Unfortunately, I have requested this feature on multiple occasions, but I feel I must be the only person that has this need.
