Additional Book Module Enhancements in Lightroom 5

• In Lightroom 5, it’s much easier to add text in the Book Module. Each page now has Transparent Buttons for “Page Text” and, if a photo exists on the page, “Photo Text”.  Note: These are linked to the existing Page Text and Photo Text controls in the Text panel.


• When positioning your cursor over a page in the page picker, it displays a circle (just like the quick collection icon). Clicking the circle adds that page to the Favorites list.


• You can now print using Blurb’s “Standard” paper stock, which is a more economical yet lighter weight paper.

• All the same metadata that is available for captions in other modules is now available for captions in the Book module.
