Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an identity plate, part of Lightroom 5: 3 Basics of Image Sharing.
…At the top left of the Lightroom interface,…you'll find a logo for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.…And that logo is actually referred to as the identity plate.…And we can change that identity plate, to reflect essentially anything we'd like.…We can add a logo there, or add some custom text,…essentially branding Lightroom, as our own personal catalog for our photos.…Of course, more importantly in the context of sharing our images, we can utilize a…custom identity plate as part of the…branding element that we include in a photo.…

Q: When I access the Identity Plate Editor dialog, I get a message in that dialog that says "No options for Lightroom identity plate." This is different from what I see in the lesson on modifying the identity plate. How do I resolve this issue?
A: The difference you are seeing relates to changes Adobe made in version 5.4 for Lightroom, related to support for the new Lightroom Mobile application. The new "Lightroom" option for the Identity Plate popup enables access to the sign-in and synchronization for Lightroom Mobile. To personalize the identity plate you can choose the "Personalized" option from the Identity Plate popup, which will reveal the set of controls for changing the identity plate.
