If you ever created a book from inside Lightroom, you probably have wondered how to overcome the limited set of standard layouts. You can use various workarounds, like using the Print module, but this is quite cumbersome.

Since I got frustrated with the lack of proper options, I have created an online tool (free to use), that allows you to convert layouts made in Serif PagePlus into Lightroom templates. I'm looking for people willing to try it out and provide feedback. This will then guide future development.

The picture below shows how it looks in Lightroom. In this case the original file contains two different layouts (please don't judge the aesthetic quality of the layouts, they are just for demonstration purposes). The left one also has a text frame.

I hope you will find it useful!
