The way to start a calendar or photo book in Lulu Studio right now is very convoluted and not intuitive. Given the number of questions on the forum, this seems to be a real hurdle, especially for new users and in comparison to how easy it is to get started on other sites. It is very confusing that both the "create your photo book" and the "create your calendar" links appear to redirect to the "Books" page. I think providing a direct link from the calendar and photo book pages to Lulu Studio like it used to be would work a lot better.

Adding photos from your files in Studio

Lulu Studio allows you to add images from your files uploaded earlier to a new project. It would be nice to be able to narrow the choices down to images uploaded for a certain project, type of project (e.g. all calendar images), or within a certain time frame rather than getting all of them in chunks of 50 at a time. If you have a lot of images, sorting through them to find the one you're looking for takes so long that it would be easier to simply upload another copy, which just unnecessarily fills up server space.

Alternatively, it would be very convenient if there was a way to duplicate an existing project and edit the second copy without losing the original, e.g. to create two identical calendars with different languages/holidays etc.

Hello AnnKat - long time, no see - Welcome back. Thank you for yet another well thought out and presented ideas. We will keep this in mind as we move forward with planned updates to the photo book and calendar creation tools.
