  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Stop struggling with Lightroom! There's no need to spend hours hunting for the answers to your Lightroom Classic questions. All the information you need is in Adobe Lightroom Classic - The Missing FAQ!

    To help you get started, there's a series of easy tutorials to guide you through a simple workflow. As you grow in confidence, the book switches to a conversational FAQ format, so you can quickly find answers to advanced questions. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.

Hi,

I got last night the above message when trying to upload a book to blurb.

I have to say that I am extremely disappointed in LR with all the problems there are right now. I have worked on this picture and book project for more than 2 months and spent some hundred hours and in addition dealing with the other LR problems like the book module messing up problem and also the crashing during sync issue which has not been solved for weeks.

I have ben a super happy LR user since LR 3 and never had any technical issues until this fall. How is it possible that LR has turned from the best software into to the woorst and most unstable?

Is there anyhting to do regarding this book upload error or just to accept that I have wated a lot of time and will not be able to finish this now so close before the finish line? Please not that this is not my first book, I have made many before without having any problems uloading etc.

Anyway if this fails I think I will be out for LR and will go for another software.

Regards,
Tom

Just an update, I was now able with the help of blurbs support to export the book as pdf and upload it manually to blurb without LR

Have tried uploading with LR several times but not working.

Regards,
Tom

I've repeatedly had the same problem. Exporting as a PDF and uploading it to BLURB works but interestingly it come up with and error - [Cover PDF] Page 1: Dimensions are invalid. Its actual dimension is [21.236 in x 9.000 in]. The expected dimension is [21.382 in x 9.000 in] - that probably tells us where the problem is in the Lightroom code. I've no idea how to tell Adobe but maybe someone knows .

I have been in direct contact with Adobe support via Photoshop family forum and according to them they are working on fixing this. Quite many have this problem and so far no attempts I know of for fixing it worked so I guess we just have to wait and see.

I was quite stressed some time ago with my book project because I had a deadline so there was nothing else to to than upload it manually via blurbs pdf uploader and that worked.
