Lightroom does not have such a capability.
You can, using the Mogrify plug-in, place text on a photo when you export the photo.
If you use the SlideShow Module you can place text on the image which you can type in manually or pull from Metadata sources such as description, title, or caption.
These images can still be processed out as jpg files.
Press the Alt/Opt key and the lower left button for Ecport Pdf will change to Export JPG...
What is Mogrify plug in? I will be using these photos in my book. I guess I can export a photo to the book software. What is the slideshow module? Where is that in Lightroom?

You could use the Book Module to create the book.
The Slideshow Module is next to the Book Module
If you don't see all the Modules. Right click or Control Click on the Module Titles and make sure there is a check mark next to the ones you want to see.
You can also hide those that are not useful to you by unchecking them
The Mogrify Plugin is available here:
Plugins add functionality to Lightroom for features that are not native to the program. Some are free and some are not.
Thank you for that. The type of book I am writing I am using Amazon's Create Space. It is not a photo book, but will have lots of photos within it.
Maybe I should just get Photoshop Elements? I am not sure this would do the 2 things I need, but I am not sure Lightroom is what I need. How much does the plug in cost?
Well, when I clicked on the link to the plugin, I found that it was donation ware. So it costs what its worth to you.
Also, whats the other thing you need to do. You only asked about writing on the images.
Photoshop Elements will certainly allow you to "write" on the images.
See the thread above. I need to change old photos to 300 ppi for printing purposes for my book. I was told I could do that when I export a photo. So, that part is fine. Now, it's the writing on a photo I am asking about.
How do you find "plug ins"? I had no idea they existed if I had not asked in this chat room.
