    Book Module Spine Background Color

    Thanks. I found the easiest solution was to click and drag the color picker from the background color dialog and pick the color in the photo you want to match. Didn't realize you have to not release the mouse button till over the part of the photo you want the color from.

    Book Module Spine Background Color

    Edit/Color Settings/Working Spaces/sRGB So do I convert with Edit/Convert to Profile/Destination Profile/ProPhoto? After doing that the colors seem unchanged and if I plug the #66397a into LR background the color is darker than the photos.

    Custom Lightroom Book module template question

    Do you have to use auto layout with the same 1 or 2 custom templates? If you have 6 custom template and always want to have title text under the photo, can you not choose the custom template for a page and have it do the text automatically?

    Custom Lightroom Book module template question

    If I customize a LR book template and then save it, can I get it to remember settings like turn on photo text and align bottom offset 2 and use title metadata? Or do I have to set that for each photo?

    Can't Import photos

    I'm using Lightroom version: CC 2015.3 [ 1052427 ] in Win 10 Pro. I can't seem to import photos from a directory on my hard drive. The add process seems to to hang whether I use the import dialog or sync option on the empty directory in LR. There are photos in that directory on my HDD.

    I'm not sure what's going on. My directory says there are 190 files but if I select all the files in the directory it only shows 184. All my filters are off and I've tried to sync the folder as well. BTW I'm using LR 6

    Export Collection Set as a catalog

    Thanks Cletus. Alt clicking on the collection set picks all the pics in the grid so you can select them all and export as a catalog. Ctrl clicking on each indivual collection in the set will accomplish the same thing. I didn't realize when you export all you collection sets and collection...
