Hi - planning to print a photo zine and will be using a pdf from Lightroom Book to send to the printers. When I export the book to pdf in LR it excludes the cover. Is this usual or should I be doing something in the options so it can be included? Many thanks...

The Cover exports as a separate PDF. TBMK you cannot change that.

One work-around is to use an App that can combine the two PDFs. (Cover + Photo pages)

Other 'book experts' might suggest that the cover (that is in a different format) might be needed by the commercial print shop as a separate PDF.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.3, Photoshop 23.3, ACR 14.3, Lightroom 5.3, Lr-iOS 7.0.2, Bridge 12.0.1, Windows-10.

Many thanks Rob, appreciate the response.

 

I have sort of muddled my way through, but for the future I may need to use a different tool than Book in LR (at least with the printers I'm using).
