Also can we have double page layouts where they are linked and cannot be broken apart.
Why will Adobe not release the ability to create custom size templates within Lightroom?
There are many photo editors out here who need to prepare custom layout books for export to pdf.
Since years, the community searches for workarounds of the limitations of the book module. Many professional photographers are not using Blurb for their client photobooks. Especially in Europe, we have different page rations for landscape books.
The book module of Lightroom is an awesome tool to speed the personal workflow (especially of professional wedding photographers) massively up with the only limitation, it can't be used due to the Blurb limitation.
Please Adobe, we are asking since more than 5 years for an enhancement of the book module with the ability to create custom book sizes and templates. This update would increase the value of Lightroom in a professional environment a lot!
This feature is asked everywhere... in forums, in all places.
- How many years we have to wait to be able to have our custom book size pages?
I would love this be treated urgently, and added immediately in the next update, please.
I'd like to be able to create a book in LR to my design and not be limited to the supplied presets with minor adjustments. Now if Blurb supply the templates, why don't they also give you the same facilities as in their own Book Wright? That's more akin to the InDesign plugin = greater freedom!
We need to be able to input custom size pages for the book module.
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
Create custom size templates? I have created a number of portrait templates with various layouts. I would really like to be able to create some other templates. Currently the portrait ones are all 8" across. I would like to be able to create a 8x8 square and rectangle with 8" width.
I have only been able to find answers saying connecting computer to printer. At present my laptop isn't connected to our printer.
If I connected it, was able to create the 2 new sizes templates, would I be able to use them downstairs or only when connected to the printer please?
I want my blog to be uniformed in the sense that all my collages are 8" across, and can vary in deoth.
Thank you so much
How about some updates to the Book Module. It has not had any significant updates at all. How about custom pages. How about moving the Global Options to a separate panel.
I had to move from Aperture to Lightroom when Apple dropped support and also stopped printing Books. Unfortunately Books in Lightroom does not allow movement, resizing or borders for the photo cell as was available in Aperture. I have now found the CEWE book creation program which does include these features but after making adjustments in Lightroom I then have to export the photos before they can be imported into CEWE. Please can the book program be improved to allow these adjustments.
