    I have just created my first book and would like to show it to a friend who owns Lightroom. I do not want to send them a pdf. I want them to see the book through the preview in Lightroom. Is this possible?

    Hi vlascalza, welcome to the forum! Yes, if they're sat next to you (or they have Lightroom on their own computer) it would certainly be possible. Can you tell us a little more about what you've got in mind?

    Victoria,
    I would like to send my book file to a friend to at the least have her see it in her version of Lightroom. She would then be able to
    Critique it for me. It would be great if she could make edits for me like chosing different fonts, deleting pages,etc. How could I do this?

    Sorry for the delay in replying. You'd right click on the saved book in the Collections panel and choose 'Export this Collection as a Catalog'. You'll need to check the 'include previews' and if she needs to be able to edit the photos, you'd need to include the original photos too, so you might need to put it on a USB stick rather than emailing it.
