Contact sheet pdf in lightroom

Apr 29, 2013 7:26 AM

Tags: #lightroom #pdf

I was recently shown how to create contact sheet pdf's in Lightroom 4 which could be emailed to clients onto which they could comment and return. All this without the need for more software or so i thought. I cannot seem to make it work. What software is needed and what do I need to do?  Many thanks.

    Sure you weren't shown Bridge? Window > Workspace > Output.

     

    In LR you would need to "print" but choose PDF as the printer. It's different  on Mac/PC. Say which you use.

    OK, then the option to print to PDF is in the Mac's print dialog.

    Not in LR, but in the Mac print dialog. You can access this by clicking Print Settings in the  bottom left corner of the Print module. Choose your printer as PDF here, and then print to it in Lightroom.

    Press the Print.... button, bottom right, then show us a screenshot of this dialog if you still can't see it.

    Then I'm not sure where else to look. System Preferences?

    Yes, I think Adobe Reader would be needed for anyone to make comments, but it may be that they need more than that (Acrobat or whatever it's called nowadays). I don't think Preview can do this, but I could be wrong.

    Aaaaaaaaah, I see.  No, that wouldn't have been through LR. 

     

    I don't think Preview can do it.  PDF Pen can set it up as a form, and is somewhat cheaper than full blown Acrobat. 

     

    Or if the receipient's a Mac user, them installing Skim (free) on Mac would allow them to draw all over it to their heart's content.

    Forms would require something like Acrobat, but Reader seems to allow people to add simple comment notes and save them to the file.
