Do you have a collection of family or travel photos that you have wanted to print as a book? Do you have a photographic project that is ready for publication, or want to offer wedding books to your clients? Recently, Adobe updated the Lightroom Classic Book Module making it easier than ever for photographers to create custom photo books and quickly transmit them for printing to Blurb or other printers.
