Lightroom BOOK Module: Create Custom Templates from Scratch - Blurb is affiliated with Lightroom. Blurb has an intuitive, powerful and flexible book making software called Book Wright. CC Lightroom users do have a BOOK Module linked with Blurb. However, the BOOK Module is inferior to the power and flexibility of Blurb’s Book Wright. For example, in Book Wright we can use the “Draw Tool” to add and position as many Text or Photo boxes as we want and position them in any location on a blank page layout. Users can personalize their layouts and creatively modify the fill and aspect ratio of their photos or text boxes . This provides the freedom many want when creating page layouts including overlapping images for effects. Creators are not restricted to set of templates provided in Lightroom’s BOOK Module. Having the ability to freely position and resize photo cells or text boxes in Lightroom’s BOOK Module in the same manner as Book Wright would be a huge asset. There’s an advantage to linking a Lightroom “COLLECTION” directly to Lightroom’s BOOK module. Utilizing Book Wright requires a work-around virtual “Collections” in Lightroom. A separate image folder would need to be created for Book Wright’s software to link-in. What’s worse is that Lightroom users would now have to leave Adobe’s application to utilize the more powerful external application of Book Wright. I’m certain Lightroom users would rather use a Blurb plugin or have the BOOK module updated with similar Book Wright features to keep users within Adobe’s own application. Hope this becomes a future consideration or update. Thank you
