Hi,

is it possible to manually create a round photo cell ? Many photo book publishers provide such round cells in their templates but I have never noticed such an option in LR 9.4.

Many thanks,

No, not possible in Book.

 

What you'd have to do is apply a Post Crop Vignette in Develop - something along these lines. So you're making the photo, not the cell, have rounded corners.

Hi John,

I have uploaded a typical photo. I need to circle-crop around the bronze sculpture.

A vignette does achieve this.

 

I am surprised that no one appears to have submitted this request to Adobe after all these years.

 

Best,

There have been quite a few request for non-rectangular photo cells in the book module but Adobe has never acted upon them. The book module hasn't really been updated in years.

Hi Jao,

thank you for your interesting response. I am always pleased when I find that I am not the only one who stumbles upon a problem which btw Adobe could and should have resolved long ago.

Blurb is not the cheapest printing service and if it was not convenient to produce a book from LR I would more often use a different company.

Many thanks,
