Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
I was just wondering what everyone's workflow is for designing press printed albums.

I just made one and it took a few hours to make. I dont know if thats fast or slow for this sort of thing. The hardest part for me was planning ahead what groups of images I had, and what page combinations to use with them *I didnt use the order the book came with*.
I made books for a while as a job.

It depends on kind of book your making. Personally I would flag good images in lightroom while I was doing my normal editing. Then take the images you flagged and throw them into a book as a rough draft to make sure things are in order.

Then go through and make sure you have all the different groups you needed to have. If you're missing some go back and get those and insert them in the right spots.

Then start at the beginning and work your way through the book laying out the photos.

Rather than planning ahead I've found that doing really rough drafts and refining works the best for me.
