    Problem/question with making Book

    gordonb98810126

      I made a Collection of photos to be used in making a book.  However, Of the 598 photos in the Collection, only 480 were actually included in the Book.  How do I add/access the additional 118 photos that are in the Collection so that I can use them in the book?

          Just a guess from me..... given the large number of images, it might mean you have many pages (I can't know for sure because you haven't said). Therefore, you might have reached the maximum page limit that Blurb set. It could be worth checking.

            Where are the images stored... on an external drive? Are you using smart previews on these 118 images? Are you seeing exclamation points on these images? Blurb has a maximum of 1000 images per book so that shouldn't be the issue.

              This is likely to be the answer.

               

              Lightroom limits the number of pages at 240. This reflected Blurb's own limit on the number of pages at the time the code was written. If Blurb have subsequently increased the limit, it is quite possible that Lightroom's limit hasn't yet been updated.

                One way to verify this is to confirm the number of pages versus the number of images in the book. If in fact there are more than 240 pages that is likely the case. If however it is less than 240 pages the cause might be that you are working with smart previews versus originals are on an external and it is connected you won't be pinged on the images not being found until you try to export.

                 

                Rather than guess... can you answer these questions:

                 

                How many pages are in your book

                Are your image stored on an external drive

                Are all of your images in the right file format

                Have you looked at Adobe's article on the book module: How to make photo books in Lightroom
