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.
