Locked Welcome to the Blurb Forums

The idea behind the Blurb Forums is simple – this is the place to talk about all things Blurb and books. You can use the Forums to find and share tips, ask or answer questions, or to meet other Blurbarians.

We believe in hosting a very open and honest message board, but there are a few fairly obvious ground rules that you can find in our Forum Guidelines. Also, we’ll continue to develop this area, so please share your feedback and ideas on what you like, don’t like, and new features you’d like to see.

Welcome and have fun!

We asked – you listened. Thanks Blurb for providing another way for customers to engage with you and each other.

When will you have it where you can download pdf files.  Wherer I work we build documents in three different formats XML, Publisher, Word and then pdf them and make them available on the server for inhouse use only.  Looking for a more cost effective way to produce one of our larger doc that is abou 440 pages.

Brand new to BLURB.

<pre><code>Want to do a 20 p softcover book for A Family Reunion. Am creating in layouts in Photoshop. I am doing the whole page layout - photos, illustration and type - in CS2. Thought I would save as jpeg or PDF and just load each whole page into the Blurb page layout.</code></pre>

Question: Can I create pages that will BLEED. Will Blurb accept bleed pages at least for the inside?

Question: I want to do an 8×10 softcover landscape book. When I load the photos in, I get a message the page size has to be 9.2×8.2. What size format should each page be?

Here is a link to the specs for full bleed pages.

 I have just finished my first book in CS3 using my own page creation utility that drives Photoshop and am just waiting for the customers approval before I submit for print.
