“ ,” is my sixth Kindle ebook, laid out entirely, except for the cover art, using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 (LR4). Beauty and the Beast, Cheyenne Nude on Muscle Bike – Erotic Biker Art Photos
Except editing the cover and a few images here and there in
Photoshop, the rest of the book was made entirely using LR4.
The final Lightroom work of laying out the book took about 2-3 hours. So, I keep getting faster.

“ ,” is my third book, written using mostly Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 (LR 4). 1955 Ford Thunderbird Classic Convertible with Nude Body Painted Figure Models, Color Body Painted Photography
About three of the images in this 35 image book used some photoshop as did the cover for text layout.
The balance was layed out using LR4’s book module only.
While previous articles pointed out issues with formating from the PDF output of the LR4 Book Module, this may be highly dependent on the kind of Kindle one is using.

was made entirely using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4. Phoenix Street People – Summer 2012“
