A picture says more than 1000 words.
Normally I use this for people, but to protect the privacy, I did not want to put people on the internet...
This is what i want:
I have created a template, like the one below.
One a single page I want to show 2 different images in different sizes and some flipped.
Image 1: the big one and the bottom row
Image 2: the left side and rotated.
On my film strip I have 100 sets of 2 photos, so 200 in total.
Question: how can I automatically have the 100 pages created, without manually dragging the photos.
Like the Lightroom template 4x5 Contact sheet. When selected, this template creates 50 pages automatically.
I do not think that Lightroom alone can do this for you. (what a PIA.!)
"Picture Package" will only accept ONE photo for all the cells on a page.
"Custom Package" can only fill the cells manually by drag&drop.
There may be a plugin- somewhere in the wide world- that will do what you need. Keep searching.
Definitely NOT an automatic method but trying to think of a logical way how I could print two images in a package as you describe-
1. In Lr, Create two different Picture Package templates . (One for the verticals V, one for the landscapes H)
("Print to File" can automate many Package 'prints' automatically)
2. Open pairs of V & H "as layers" in Photoshop and mask to combine into one image. (with an action)
