Modifications you make to the colors, layout, text, and output settings can be saved as a custom web gallery template. After you save it, the custom template is listed in the Template Browser for reuse. You can create new folders in the Template Browser to help organize your templates.

Note:

For information on premade templates, see Work with web gallery layouts.

  1. In the Template Browser of the Web module, select a template on which to base your custom template, and modify the layout.
  2. Specify the settings you want in the Site Info, Color Palette, Appearance, Output Settings, Image Info, and Output Settings panels.
  3. Click the Plus icon (+) in the Template Browser in the Web module.
  4. Overwrite “Untitled Template” to give your custom template a name, and specify a folder (such as “User Templates”) for the template.

Create and organize template folders

  1. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the area where you want the folder to appear and choose New Folder.
  2. Type the name of the folder and click OK.
  3. Drag a template to a folder name to move the template to that folder.

If you drag a Lightroom preset template to a different folder, the template is copied to that folder.

Update custom templates

  1. Modify colors, layout, text, and output settings as needed.
  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) a template in the Template Browser and choose Update With Current Settings.

Delete custom templates

You cannot delete Lightroom preset templates.

  • Do one of the following:
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) a template in the Template Browser and choose Delete from the context menu.

    • Select a template in the Template Browser and click the Remove button.

Import and export templates

You can export templates you’ve created to share with colleagues or to use on a different computer. Templates are saved with an .lrtemplate extension.

  • To export a template, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) a template and choose Export. Type the name of the template file and click Save.
  • To import a template, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the area where you want the template to appear and choose Import. Double-click the template file.

Save web settings as a web collection

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

  1. In the Library module, select the photos for the web photo gallery.
  2. In the Web module, select a template. Specify the settings you want in the Site Info, Color Palette, Appearance, Image Info, Output Settings, and Upload Settings panels.
  3. In the Filmstrip, select the photos to include them in web collection.
  4. Click the Plus icon (+) in the Collections panel and choose Create Web Gallery.
  5. Type a name for your web collection in the Create Web Gallery 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 Web Gallery Options, select Include Selected Photos. Select Make New Virtual Copies if you want the collection to include virtual copies instead of the original photos.
  7. Click Create.

Lightroom adds the web collection to the Collections panel and gives it a grid icon .
