I just received my first 8×10" Blurb publication and I am delighted.
Am I particular? You bet. There were 21 reproductions of paintings in my book, and I was completely satisifed with every single one of them. After having read about other customers’ difficulties with uploading, print quality, and binding, I was a bit nervous. But now I can say with confidence that I am ready to start work on my next book. Uploading was a breeze (but I only had a total of 21 images for a 40 page book with text, which might make a difference). The images were richly saturated and crisp—as good as I could have hoped. The colors were spot-on—both images and background. Everything looked exactly as in the preview. BTW, I’m working with Mac’s iPhoto & Arcsoft PhotoStudio. I do wish the 7×7" books were as good! But I could not be happier with my 8×10. This one is bookstore quality.
It’s a great feeling seeing you work in print HUH!
