PDF to Book

160 page Blurb PDF Export, 17 hours and still no PDF, what is wrong?

I am exporting a 160 page Blurb book, all images are 300dpi jpgs, I am currently in the process of a 17 hour export, and the pdf still is not complete?

What is wrong? Does anyone have any ideas what is wrong and how to resolve it?

Are there any workarounds, you can offer to get a completed PDF, to upload to Blurb?

As always thanks in advance for your time and reading and replying to my post,

Sebastian

I had a very similar problem. My book is 120 pages and the entire book file ended up being huge (over 500MB). I tried uploading it for hours and hours multiple times. It never would go through successfully.

I resolved this issue by going to Acrobat and doing an "Optimize" using the advanced settings. This reduced the file to less than 50MB. It uploaded and printed fine.
