Are you thinking of a watermark, where the text or image appears, or a name that is in the file data but does not show?
Elements software supports watermarks, see this tutorial.

DPP does not support watermarks directly.

Yes, a watermark. Thanks for the link to the video. I've been searching the Internet for ways to add a watermark in PSE. Very frustrating. The instructions vary depending on the version you have. One video was very complete in explaining how to do it via a custom brush. BUT, I couldn't find the bush the author was referring to. I have a Smart Brush, but not a "regular" brush.

If you use Photoshop or Lightroom it is very easy. If yes, but don't know how, please feel free to ask.

What I did in PS but you can also do in Elements is make a PNG of your watermark and create a brush, only downside you can only do one at a time.
