This is the time of year many of us think about creating a photo book to give to family and friends. If you are using Lightroom 4, try the Book module to lay out your book and upload it to the Blurb book printing service.
The book module is covered in the Adobe Lightroom 4 Classroom in a Book. Peachpit press has provided the detailed book lesson free on their web site. See Creating a Photo Book in Lightroom 4. You’ll need to follow along using your photos rather that the tutorial files, but you’ll end up with a book of your own. Skip the instructions about importing the tutorial files and put the photos you want to use into a collection.
Tip for tablet users: View the lesson article on your iPad or other tablet device as you follow along in Lightroom.
If you are looking for a quick start to the Book module, I recommend Julieanne Kost’s video:
When you are done with that, Julieanne has 2 more videos on the book module.
