Lightroom Print Templates – You Learn Something New Everyday

Pinterest is Awesome.  I love scrolling through the pins and dreaming of food to make, houses to build, photos to take and exercises to do to work off the food I made.  Pinterest also drives good traffic to this website; so I have been creating a Pin for each of the themed photo shoots I do.  I hated doing it.  It took about 25 minutes of drudgery where I would export the pictures I wanted from Lightroom, resize them based on the number and layout of pictures, then arrange them in Photoshop, resize the whole thing and export it once again.  And the more creative the layout, the longer it took (which is why the layouts were never very creative).  It was not an efficient system and led to me recently just using single images as my pins on Pinterest instead of making the multi-image storyboard.

One day while messing around in Lightroom, I discovered the “Print Module”.  You can create templates where all you have to do is drag and drop the photos you want into place, then export straight to the correct sized JPG.  The answer to all my problems and inefficiencies had been right in front of my eyes the whole time.   So I set about with gusto to create a few different templates to streamline my Pinning.  40 templates later, I realized I probably had enough.  So here they are in all their glory, my Lightroom Print Templates for Pinterest Pins and Other Uses.
