I use Lightroom for my workflow and any developing work needed (photoshop if required). However I am looking to take the workflow one step further.
Aperture on Mac has a built in PhotoBook module which is not bad at all, and allows for the workflow to carry on over into the publishing side.
However... there is nothing like it in Lightroom.

My question : Is there a plugin for lightroom which does this?
if not, is there a decent standalone application which can, preferably talk to Lightroom?

And last question for Karl: what do you use, if any for making a book or do you just leave this side to the publishers?

Hello dbuch,

I use Lightroom 4 (approx. 100€) and this has a photobook-function. As I read in some forums, there is not much creativity in this function, it nevertheless covers the basic elements of a photobook. I recommend a closer look on the buyers' comments on amazon. There should also be lots of freeware-applications for that in the web, which I don't know, because I don't produce photobooks.

By the way: I just recently bought Photoshop Elements 10 (not knowing that PSE11 is under way)and was more than happy with it. But since I made the step to Lightroom 4, my workflow is even better. I love the funcionalities of LR4, the speed and the non-destructive working with my photograph. I definitely should have made this (little) investment earlier!

Good light to you!
