BookSmart

Text Appearance in BookSmart

Okay, I have a scanned image of a wedding invitation..  I placed it on a white background that’s exactly the right pixel size for a full-bleed image.  It looks great in Photoshop at 100%... In BookSmart it looks terrible!! You can barely read it.

On second glance, I noticed that the text looks choppy on all my pages that are custom layout, full-bleed sized images.  They all look great outside of BookSmart.

 What is up?? Will these print correctly? I sure hope so..

Print the page as a .pdf and see how it looks after you print it.

If the invitation is fine script, there probably isn’t anything you can do except try to replicate the scanned invitation text yourself, just to make sure it will print with fine resolution.

What may be a good thing to try is to scan the invite at a higher multiple and reduce it to fit the page.  Maybe 400% up, then insert and "auto fit" and see what the result is.

P.S.  Scan that invite at the highest resolution possible.
