Putting page numbers on full-bleed photo pages

Just wonder how I put page numbers on pages with full bleed photos. I notice that the page does not take page number even when I leave space at the bottom. I want to put captions in a table of contents at the end of the book along with page numbers. It is for this reason that I want to put page numbers on each page, or at least on photo pages with space at the bottom. What is the best way to handle that.

Hello Agarg;

Not possible I’m afraid!

There is no ability to "force" page numbers onto any pages which do not have a "Footer" container…

Your only two options are;

 - Either use a template with a Footer. or;

 - Create your own page in PhotoShop (or similar) and import the image (with pre-appended page number) into a full-bleed template in BookSmart.

Danger of course is that if you move, or insert or delete pages, the page-number may go out of line…

Good luck;

Lee
