Lightroom Book Page Templates

Adobe Lightroom and Blurb are A Perfect Couple. LR is crucial during the entire workflow of my images, and Blurb provides good quality photobooks at a very affordable price. I used to enjoy both of them long before their relationship was revealed by the LR4 Book Module.

Anyway, sometimes I thought: "So many templates But I still haven't found what I'm looking for (cit.)" I finally got to create a few custom templates, which are exactly what I wanted. These templates make each photobook unique and exclusive. Now I'd love to share my efforts with you, and I'd love to get comments and suggestions to improve and create new more templates.

After many sleepless nights, I created 326 page templates working with 4 different Blurb book formats (8"x10", 10"x8", 13"x11", 12"x12") and 156 templates only for big formats (13"x11", 12"x12"). About 500 templates to have fun with!

I decided to organize them in libraries, you can do a whole book with just one library, or you can mix them up. I focused my attention on details, and tried to solve a few problems that IMHO in LR4 were not considered. For example, the templates in a library have consistent photo alignments and margins, so that you can choose different layouts, but you always have a nice and neat appearance. Another unique feature is the differentiation between left and right pages: different margins take into account binding issues.

Each library includes templates for both single pages and two-page spreads.

For professional photographers and professional photobook printers
To have your own personalized templates, please contact me.
Personalized images, watermarks or logos can be added.
You can also use different print formats, if the big amount of Blurb's ones does not fit your needs!

Line D

The main idea is to have an imaginary line (the 'line D') below which all the images will be attached. The asymmetry between bottom and top margin creates a unique layout with a professional look.

For the time I invested, and to help contribute to further development, I ask you a Paypal contribution.
As soon as I get the Paypal confirmation e-mail, I will e-mail you a package containing the selected libraries and setup instructions for both Windows and Mac OSX.
The libraries work with Adobe Lightroom 4.0 or later, tested also for Lightroom 5.
