Customising 2-page photo spreads
All other photo pages are able to be customised, why not the 2 page spread? I would like an image to flow over slightly to the opposite page and then have the ability to add a smaller image or two on the overflow page or even have a customised text box too. Possible now? In the future?.
I’ve done this:
Assuming the full-photo page is on the left, and it flows a bit over onto the right page:
Use the BookSMart full-page graphic layout for the left page.
Create a custom page with the partial image container and the image container for the smaller image.
Calculate the size that your photo needs to be to fill the full left page and the image container for the part carried over onto the right page
Size your image accordingly and import into BookSmart
Drop the image into the left page
Drop the same image into the right page area where the image is to continue on that page
Select the image on the left page, and use the arrow keys to move it so that the left edge of the image lines up with the left edge of the image container/page
Now select the same image in its container on the right page
Use the arrow keys to move the image left until the right edge of the image is just at the edge of the right image container’s right edge
You may find that there will be duplicate pixels at the junction of the left and right pages, but in my experience, these will be down in the crevice between the pages when the book is opened (there must be a technical term for this)
Great! Works for me. Many thanks, but Blurb could have made it easier for us though.
