Creating a Custom Identity Plate For Lightroom

Since Adobe Lightroom is one of those applications that you use for hours a day its nice to be able to customize it a bit to fit your style. One thing that you can easily do is replace the Lightroom logo that shows on the top left corner with your own logo. Setting this up is easy just click on the Lightroom link at the top left and then click “Identity Plate Setup…”. From here click on the checkbox for “Enable Identify Plate” and drag and drop your image into the black space below. The image should be 57 pixels tall in order to properly fit into the space. Images for the identity plate can be the following for windows: BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, or TIFF. And for Mac can be a JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, PDF, or PSD.

Here you can also customize the text for the buttons on the top right of the screen and have these be different fonts, sizes or colors.
