    Print file name on photos in Picture Package?


      I've created some picture packages in the print module of Lightroom to print packages in house for sports teams and players. Is there any way to have the file names printed somewhere on the print so we can match the print to the order form by way of file name?

          Hi Brian,


          It seems that the only Layout Style that allows you superimpose a file name (or other text) onto the images in the Print Module is the "Single Image / Contact Sheet".  If you use that option instead of "Picture Package" the images will be either a single image per page or a grid of images with a consistent number of rows and columns (like a contract sheet if you're old enough to remember those from film).  In this layout style, go down to the ":Page" panel and check the "Photo Info" box near the bottom of that panel.  Then select "filename" from the pulldown list.  Below that you can select a font size.  The info prints under each image.


          Hope that helps

            Yes the Print module does have the limitation that you cannot print metadata ON the area of the image. But you can create any multiples of metadata to show BELOW the image area as "Photo Info".


            To locate the Filename (or other metadata) actually ON the image (as you would a watermark) you will need a plugin like "Mogrify"  https://www.photographers-toolbox.com/products/lrmogrify2.php?sec=quickguide


            And for Picture Package- Nothing!!! Not possible.
