In my Photobooks, I always add a thin border around my pictures.
I'd like to have this option in the Book Module.

The same options as in the Print Module (image settings - inner stroke chosing color) would be perfect.

Even now with LR 5.5 there still isn't a stroke capacity in the Book module -- at least not that I have seen. I wish someone from Adobe would answer us with a reason why this isn't an option. Is there something about the programing that just doesn't work with Lightroom that we lay people don't understand? Bookify has it, the print module of LR has it, so I don't understand why it would be so difficult to add it to the Book module. Adobe, please give us some feedback.

I can export my photos from Lightroom into Blurb book application which DOES have the ability to add simple borders to the photos. I cannot understand why this obvious feature is not part of Lightrooom V5.5

Please add this feature. I actually can't believe this feature wasn't included from the start. Why wouldn't you want to put a border around prints in a book?

I print on roll paper up to 44" wide. If you are printing a template in the Custom Package which is say 35" x35" there is no way of adding a stroke to this template. This makes it very difficult to cut the border of the template once it has been printed on the roll paper. Please add this feature to Lightroom, I can't be the only person with this problem. It would also be great to be able to add guides when creating templates in the Custom Package.

@Rikk

I just started using Lightroom (and this is like version 10 or so), but this is not solved. The border applies to the frame or cell not to the photo. It doesn't make sense unless you always select the option of zoom to cell.

Agree that it is 50%, but marking it as 'implemented' is misleading.
