How do I add text in Lightroom?

    I want to add text in Lightroom and I have
    followed the instructions.

    I add the custom text across the bottom of
    the slideshow image, but there seems to be no
    way to make this permanent and then save the
    photo *with* the text in place.

    In Photoshop the layers are fused together in
    one step. How does one do this in Lightroom?

    Please help, Peter

    You can't. You aren't adding text to the image, you are adding text to
    the slide show. Lightroom is not a full alternative to Photoshop.

    Lightroom is RAW *converter* not retoucher/editor

    Thanks for the replies.
    I am so confused by all the EXIF etc., and
    over the disappearing fields I added in the
    Exifer EXIF that I am desperate enough to
    watermark across the bottom every photo I
    have and save them in this form.

    The plethora of software can't take *this*
    away form me...!!!
