Creating Prints and Books is part of author Chris Orwig's investigation of Adobe Lightroom 5, and focuses on the Print and Books modules, which can be used to create high-quality prints and proofs and design custom layouts for books. Chris briefly reviews how to correct and paint away gamut issues and other problems in the Develop module and shows how to take advantage of templates and collections. The course also shows how to adjust print job settings for contact sheets, single image prints, and print packages, and the final chapters guide photographers through the step-by-step process of building and printing a book from Lightroom.
A bonus chapter introduces a quick condensed workflow for experienced designers who want to learn about changes to the process in Lightroom 5.
Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer, author, and educator. And welcome to this series, Lightroom 5 Essentials. You know, Lightroom has quickly become one of the most dominant image editing tools in the world. And if you're curious to learn why and to discover how you can use Lightroom to improve your workflow and your photographs, well you've come to the right place. The goal for this series is to cover what you need to know in order to begin to acheive professional results.
In this installment, the fifth in our series, we'll focus in on how we can create better prints and custom book projects. You know as a photographer, I have always deeply valued the photographic print, whether on a single page or bound in a book. So let me highlight a few of the topics we'll be covering in this course. We'll talk about the value of the photographic print. And we'll discuss how we can use the develop module and what's called Soft Proofing in order to preview how our images will appear once they've been printed.
We'll explore how we can work with print collections, and how we can use templates to do different things like say, create a contact sheet. We'll look at how we can print a single image on a page. And how we can customize the overall print layout. Then we'll take some time to put together a book project. We will begin by using auto layout in order to populate he project with our images. . And then we'll look at how we an customize a layout. How we can change images and page order so that the book project looks its best.
Well, we will be covering these topics and more. So without further delay, let's begin.
