How to Get a Custom Print Layout Into Lightroom’s Book Module
Ever since I started posting these custom print templates, I’ve been getting questions about how to take these layouts (once you’re done putting images into the layouts) , so I thought I’d do a short video about it.
NOTE: if you’re not doing Wedding albums, watch till the end of the video where I use the exact same layout for a travel photo book. These layouts can be used for any topics.
Hope that helps. 🙂
If you’re in Boston or Philly…
I’m inviting you to come out and spend the day with me as I kick off my new Lightroom On Tour full-day seminar. It’s just $99 (including a detailed workbook), and it’s 100% guaranteed — if it’s not the best Lightroom seminar you’ve ever attended, at any price, we’ll refund your ticket right on the spot! I’m in Boston on Friday, March 10th, and Philly on Monday the 13th. Come on out – we’ll have a blast! Details and tickets are here.
P.S. My next seminar stops after that are Chicago on April 10th and then the Detroit area on April 11th . If you’re up that way, I hope you’ll come join me.
A while back I’ve created a new tool (Page2LR) to allow the generation of your own custom page templates. It’s making use of a third party tool to design the templates and then converts it into Lightroom format.
It’s still in active development, so new features will be added over time.
May I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody who genuinely understands what they are discussing over the internet. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.
This is a very interesting webpage and I have enjoyed reading many of the articles and posts contained on the website, keep up the good work and hope to read some more interesting content in the future.
very nice!! cover letter templates
It’s a good piece of information. High intensity content
nice article thank you.
Jio4GVoice thanks for this
I enjoyed over read your blog post. Your blog have nice information!
Thanks for expanding your tips to cover these additional Lightroom modules. It is a shame that you have to explain something like this though because Lightroom really should have a Book module that allows you to create pages like your examples simply and easily. The Book module has been neglected for so long I think we have all become accustomed to dealing with its inadequacies. To think that Adobe, the same company that produces InDesign and Acrobat etc has a book publishing module in Lightroom that is so bad it makes Microsoft PowerPoint look sophisticated must be embarrassing I would have thought. I am assuming a lot of the development resource is going in to the mobile apps but unless the desktop app keeps moving forward someone will catch up and take over Lightroom someday soon. I am not asking for InDesign built in to Lightroom but being able to align photos and space them evenly etc is pretty basic stuff.
AGREE, AGREE, Agree….
it has always been absolutely maddening to me that Adobe requires this extra step to do anything beyond “canned” layouts in Lightroom. Because I cannot design an album layout, and because I have to use the same workaround for any meaningful text work, I am forced to do my albums in some other non-Adobe software.
I seriously doubt this is a development issue, but perhaps a fear on Adobe’s part that someone might use Lightroom, instead of using InDesign.
Maybe Adobe could, at least, give us a way to design our own album pages (maybe even using InDesign?)
