Hi,

 

I am using Lr V4.0 on Mac and I am trying to import one photo into another, pretty much like layering. I want to be able to load one photo into another and be able to crop/resize it.

 

I have done extensive research and found some people online were able to do it using the 'Print' feature, however I don't seem to have that. 

 

Is this something I can do on Lr? or am I going to need Photoshop for that?

 

Thank you!

By far the best and non-destructive method would be to use the "Edit in Photoshop" command, available from within Lightroom Classic. If you have your Sort settings set appropriately in the Library Grid view, the result will appear next to the original as part of a Stack.

Thank you, Tony! I was hoping I can get away without using PS, but this did the trick easier than I expected!

Coming 'late to the party'!

Yes you can use the Print Module in Lightroom-Classic by using a [Custom Package] and adding as many cells as you need for 'layering' photos in a collage. Then set the Print Job to [Print To:  JPEG]

But not as flexible as doing it in Photoshop. And ONLY in Photoshop if you use Lightroom-Desktop v4.0 (Cloud based)
