Picture problems

<table cellspacing="0" class="posts wide" border="0"><tbody><tr class="post hentry odd" id="posts-8744-row"><td class="body entry-content" id="post-body-8744">

Okay so I have been working on my book now for a few weeks and have read most of the posts on here, however I am still having some problems with my pictures…or at least I think I am …...

 I hae gone for a book that uses a number of different layouts some fuul page others 1/2 or 1/4 as well as some of the montage layouts and multiple small pic layouts….

Question is, do I need to resize all of the the picture to fit each picture window? can they not be all the same size (resolution & dpi) and still be used to fit a number of different layouts or do I need to resize each individual image??

 Dazed and confused…...

3STIPES,

I have done two books and have never "resized" any of the photos.  This includes old, scanned pictures, new digital originals, and every level of quality possible.  I do adjust some of them to bring them closer in on the page layout.  Every picture that I have printed looks exactly like the original (both bad and good quality).  Also, I have mostly ignored the yellow warning about the size and quality—those have all printed just as good, or bad, as the original.  If you’re printing a portfolio of professional photos, then you need to know about the technical details of resizing.  If you’re doing a book for family or friends or personal use, I would say don’t worry about al the resizing issues until you see your first book.
