Book Design and Imaging

Photo book advice required

I would like to make a standard Landscape book with hardcover and Dust Jacket. I have mad five books so far without any problems. However this time I am, I am attempting to make up a template on a desktop publishing program (Serif Page Plus 7) This template is supposed to be of a size to fit one photo a page in my new book. Can anyone tell me the size of the landscape page and the maxinmum size of a photo box for that page? Many thanks

Standard Landscape 
Cover (full bleed): 3059 × 2555 px – 10.197 × 8.517 inches, 25.9 × 21.63 cm 
Page (full bleed): 2888 × 2475 px – 9.627 × 8.25 inches, 24.45 × 20.96 cm 


Remember this is for FULL BLEED. It will possibly be cut ⅛" in from this and if it involves text, or items you really really don’t want cropped, you should move back ¼".

In practice, Blurb has been nearly excellent in cutting and cropping very very precisely but …

Good luck

Tom
