There’s a lot of talk about some of the new features in Lightroom 5 that are available for preview in the current Beta version. However what’s impressed me the most is the inclusion of editable book templates. Of the features in Lightroom 4, the inability to edit templates when creating books is the biggest drawback and one that constantly sends me back to the Blurb App on my desktop. While the ability to soft proof inside Lightroom 4 using Blurb’s profile is a nicer option than having to install the Blurb ICC profile in Photoshop and soft proof from there when using Blurb’s installed software, it wasn’t enough to win my loyalty in that area. So I look forward to having a true Blurb workflow inside Lightroom 5.
