    Lightroom CC Book module and Develop module

    deanw20556551

      So I'm working on this book using the Book module, most current copy of LR from the cloud.  I've got about 400 pictures in the book.  Now what I would like to do is go through the pictures in the book and bring them up in the Develop module so I can make sure they are optimized (color corrected, sharpened up, looking their best).

       

      If I was in the library module I would have selected a picture and pressed 'D' to go to the Develop module.  So I'm in the Book module and I want to select an image and go to Develop to review it.  It appears the 'D' works but it just takes me to Develop and shows the last image I had open not the one I have selected in the Book module.

       

      Anyone know if this can be done?  And if not, how do you go about jumping through collections looking for 400 images to deal with?

       

      thanks.

          Normal workflow would be-

          Select an image on the Filmstrip below the book layout and press [D]

          Or click on the image in the Book pages layout and press [D]

           

          If this is not working for you (and you have opening the incorrect image) then maybe a Preferences reset or a deletion of the Previews folder, may correct.

          Have you created a "Saved Book"?  from the tab above the book layout. (not a standard collection)

          Do you always work from the 'saved book' in the Collections panel?

          Can you open the 'Saved Book' collection from library grid view and select and develop an image from there?

            i have put together a book and then edited images using the develop module. I uploaded the book to Blurb but none of the edits took effect during gate printing process, i.e. the original, unedited photo was printed.

             

            I thought the edits would take and the finish product would be what I see on the monitor. That was not the case.

             

            I printed the book into a pdf. The edits did get included.

             

            what is going on here? what am i doing wrong?

              I uploaded the book to Blurb

              The crucial question is- How did you upload to Blurb?

              Did you simply click on the button in the lower right corner of the Book module?

              And, were you seeing the 'edited' versions of your photos in the Book module pages layout?

                Thanks for your quick response.

                 

                yes, uploaded clicking on block “send book to blurb”

                 

                yes, I did see the edited versions on the layout in the book module

                  I cannot explain, or even imagine, why your photos went to the book as 'original'.

                  They should export to Blurb the same as you see on screen and in the PDF.

                   

                  Can you show us some screen-clips to compare a photo in the Book module and as it printed in PDF and book?

                  My only thought is that your monitor screen needs calibrating, but that would be only a 'color' problem.

                  Did you try to apply a profile to the photos?

                  What other editing adjustments did not show in the book? Can you give some more detail?
