Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Using collections for sharing, part of Lightroom 5: 3 Basics of Image Sharing.

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.
