Tip Of The Day: Create Text Slides in Lightroom

The basic steps are: make a virtual copy of a blank slide (for solid black, just take a photo with the lens cap on), place it where you want the title to be in the slide show, type your title into a rarely used metadata field, then add custom text to the slide and choose the metadata field as the source of the text.—Matthew PanzarinoContributing Blogger
