Different Photo Shapes in LR4 Print Module

Tags: #shapes #print_module

A friend asked me to make a collage for his wife's 80th birthday. I used the print module and created a custom template for twenty or more photos. To make the collage more interesting, I'd like to use shapes like ovals, circles or hearts for some of the photos. However, all I can find are rectangles or squares. Is there a templet or preset available for non-linear shapes so I can pull a photo from my library and place it oval-shaped in the collage?

    No but you can fake it.


    Any photo you want oval (or circular) take to Develop and then go to the Effects panel>Post Crop Vignetting. Set to Color Priority, Amount 100, Midpoint 50, Roundness and feather to 0.  As long as you are printing on White paper, it will work.


    Roundness of -75 makes a nice rectangle with rounded corners.
