Book Design and Imaging

Book written in PDF. Need help getting it in Book Smart format.

The book is written, photos inserted where we want them and it is in PDF. After reading through this Forum we realize we do not have the expertise to print using BookSmart. Out of the list of Blurb Nation people who can you recommend to help us move this project forward. Book is 370 pages with 300 photos and much text. Most photos are black and white but a few are in color. It is a family history book.

you have to use photoshop to make them jpg or png files. I recommend png. Make sure to export document as pages not spreads, open them all in photoshop, and then create an action to save them as 300 dpi .png files. Then you place each page in Blurb using the the auto-place tool.  Good luck!

Thank you leahlady. We got a free trial on Photoshop and did as you said. We built a 30 page trial book that we will now send in to be printed so that we can determine the lvel of quality.
