Book Design and Imaging

Did Anyone Experience this Picture-Loading Problem?

Hello Everyone,

I had one major problem while creating my book. Each time I uploaded photos, the Blurb program closed. I had to constantly reopen it and attempt to upload photos. Sometimes Blurb would not allow me to upload my photos, which was a second problem.

This added lots of hours to a project that, to me, should have taken 90 minutes to create a 20-page book.

Did or has anyone else experienced this problem?

Aside from that my book looks great. It just took so much time to put it together.

I only had the problem once. All my images are the same size, so it was a little strange. The thing I had bigger problems with was how amazingly slow editing went when I had other web-based programs running. It took me a while to realize what was going on.

I have had a different problem. When I drag/drop the image into the layout the image on both the "my imported photos" and the layout turn solid black!

I’ve re-imported several times with the same problem. I am working  on a mac. Anyone have this problem?

I reviewed Blurb’s program on my blog and mentioned the problem. Perhaps someone who uses Blurb but didn’t read my dilemma here will provide me with a solution.
