Save print settings as a print collection

When you save print settings as a print collection, you can add new photos to the collection and they automatically include the print settings. This is different from custom templates, which include the output options but no photos. A print collection applies the print settings to the photos in the collection.

  1. In the Library module, select the photos you want to print.
  2. In the Print module, select a template and specify the settings you want in the panels on the right side of the module.
  3. In the Filmstrip, select the photos to include them in output creation.
  4. Click the Plus icon (+) in the Collections panel and choose Create Print.
  5. Type a name for your print collection in the Create Print dialog box. Choose a collection set from the Set pop-up menu to add the collection to an existing set, or choose None.
  6. Under Print Options, select Include Selected Photos (contact sheet) or Include Referenced Photos (packages). Select Make New Virtual Copies if you want the output creation to include virtual copies instead of the original photos.
  7. Click Create.

Lightroom adds the print collection to the Collections panel and gives it a page layout icon .
