Saving custom book pages in Lightroom 5

Custom Pages

New in Lightroom 5, you can save custom page layouts within the Book Module. This is a great time-saver, and a good way to develop and re-use your own unique page styles as you create photo books.

  1. Thank you for this tutorial. I have been struggling with book customization in Lightroom for several weeks now, and you are the first tutorial that showed how to customize the cells beyond just padding. I am still frustrated that apparently Lightroom won’t let me add photo or text cells, but I think that by using multi-cell pages I can delete and customize until I get close to what I’m looking for. Thank you again,
    Judy E.

  2. Overall I find this to be a modest improvement and overhyped as customization. Not just you Michael, but all the other tutorials on “customizing layouts in the ‘awesome’ Lightroom book module.” We are taking a fixed model and simply changing the inner cell dimensions. How about true customization where you can move cells, add new cells, change the sizes of cells. Thus far I cannot find any mention of that.
