Adding text on top of a photo in Book Module of Lightroom 4?

Mar 30, 2012 8:03 AM

Other than the cover template, there doesn't seem to be any page template that allows you to put type directly over a photo -- which can be a useful graphic technique.  I know I could do it in Photoshop, and import it into Lightroom, but that wouldn't allow for easy chages in text type or color, etc. and would be an interruption of the book module's workflow.  It would be nice to be able to add a text box to a page.  Can it now be done and I just haven't found the way?

    Did you try the Over button on the Caption palette?


    EDIT: You can also use the page caption (same palette).

    Use virtual copies.
