Class: Publishing a Blurb Book with Lightroom

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just in time for Christmas, Paula will show you how to create your own photo book with Blurb using Lightroom (V4 or 5). Whether giving a gift to others, or making a gift to yourself, this class will give you the basic knowledge you need to create your own photo book.

The following topics will be covered during the class

  • What you need to think about as you are shooting
  • What you need to think about as you are editing
  • What are your options if you don't have Lightroom available
  • What determines your book's price
  • How to set up a collection to manage your images
  • How to tell a story with a page spread.
  • Things to be aware of as you put your images into the book
  • How to proof your book
  • What happens after you submit the order for the book.

A handout will be provided so you have the steps and instructions to do this at home.

    For those interested in doing a Blurb book, there is a special through August 26th. There is a discount of 10% on orders of $50, 15% on $100 and 20% on $150. Hopefully you have the book almost ready to go since they generally give a short time on announcing their specials.

    Excellent class. Thank you Paula. Having done a number of books using BookSmart I was interested in seeing if Lightroom would be easier, faster, more automated. I have always been pleased with the books I have received from Blurb. If anyone would care to see any that I have done go to Blurb.com search for Gary Woodard. There are twenty some odd books done since 2007. They can be previewed.

      I did the castle book for the group using blurb. I thought The quality was pretty good and they've got a fast turnaround. I'm working on putting together another book. Cynthia: What did you use to do your book?

    HUGE thanks to PAULA for putting this one together for us!
