More Flexible Printing

Options for grouping different photo sizes on the same page have expanded greatly in Lightroom 3. Start with one of the included templates or build out a blank page. In either case, click-and-drag controls make it easy to reshuffle the layout, add photos, and resize them individually, as shown in Figure 15.

An auto-layout option, plus a rotate-to-fit option, help you create paper-saving layouts. And the new custom-package option lets you overlap photos of different sizes and control the top-to-bottom position of each in the overall stack (see Figure 16). As an added bonus, you can add any of the watermarks you create with the Watermark Editor.

Now, are you going to stick with Lightroom 2 and skip upgrading to Lightroom 3? I didn't think so.
