Sending a contact sheet to a file
« on: May 11, 2013, 02:52:00 PM »

I recently took photos at a fashion show (don't ask) and wanted to send a few dozen of them to a friend. Rather than exporting all these individual jpegs, I wanted to put thumbnails into a single file for easy viewing. I could not figure out how to do this. As LR is an Adobe product, I am surprised that it does not have PDF support built in (or I am missing it). The Print module will do just what I want, but only to paper. Tanks for any ideas.

With the print function you can also print to a file, it will be a jpeg. Perhaps you know how to convert that tot pdf.

Not built in, but....

I have Acrobat and can select the 'Adobe PDF' "printer" to create a PDF in LR.

If you Google 'PDF creator' you should find a free one which works.

It's built in to LR. In the Print module, scroll down to Print Job and there's a dropdown for printing to a printer or a jpeg file. It's just above the Draft Mode Printing checkbox.

Thanks! LR has all sorts of goodies if you know where to find them (or where to ask!).
