This is what I do. When I have completed my layout and upload to the gallerys, I just copy what I have typed in the info place. (which I do anyway if I am uploading to multiple galleries) Then go back to my layout PSD and add a layer, paste the info (I usually also add in a plain white layer so that I can see the type), then hide the new layer and resave. Sometimes I do need to add in spaces to break up the long parts of the info and get it to fit on the layout. But, then I don't need to type all the info and find the links again if I upload to another gallery. This works for me, but I always keep my PSDs in addition to my print ready jpegs. If you delete the PSD then you would lose that info.
For a while I was making a second document that was reg letter size with the intention that I would print them out in a binder and then have all the info. I put the file name at the top, a smaller copy of the layout under that. Then all the info on the layout including all designer info and the pictures (file names) that I used. Also the purpose of the layout, if it was created for a special project in mind, or a challenge from a site, or a CT thing, or multiple. I also put which galleries I had uploaded it too. I think that only lasted about 20 layouts or so. Great info to have but way to time consuming and a little to organized for me.
Before that I used a little notebook and kept track of most of the same info in that.
My current in definally the easiest for me. Forgot to say that I am currently working in PSE5.
