If you want to add text or a graphic to your photos, use Lightroom’s watermarking functionality. This is available when you export copies of your photos, and when you create output  in the Print, Slideshow and Web modules.  (You can’t watermark your master photos.)

Below is a video tutorial on using the watermark editor to create, save and apply watermarks. This video is one of  55 videos from my Lightroom 4: The Fundamentals & Beyond video series.  It is applicable to all versions of Lightroom starting with Lightroom 3 – including Lightroom CC and 6. (Update: My newer Lightroom CC/6 and 5: The Fundamentals & Beyond video series is now available.)
