I just spent half a day designing my first book in LR 4. I completed the book a few minutes ago, and it was only then that I realized I don't seem to be able to export as a Jpeg or as a spread--only as a PDF, and then only single pages, so each spread is chopped in half.
Can this really be true?If so I am beyond disapointed. LR is supposed to be a pro tool and this book module seems to be acting more like a consumer tool. If I am correct, then the entire module is basically useless to me and I have wasted half a days work, as I'll have to begin all over again in a new program.
Can someone please make my day by proving me wrong? This is just such a letdown!
You can export individual pages as jpegs, but not spreads in Lr4.1 (Check for updates) ... though the ability to export spreads as jpegs was heavily requested in the beta phase of Lr4 ... as well as the ability to create custom page sizes ... as yet no news on how to do so ...
Thanks--I am on LR 4.1, and I do now see the ability to export as Jpegs. YAY!
Incidently, on the pages that I have used the 'two page spread' template, I am getting exports as a single spread. All others are single pages as you indicate. My plan, once the client approves of the design, is to import them into PS and manually past them together as a single spread.
An extra step that I hope future versions of LR will eliminate!
