True image ratio sizes
Book Design and Imaging

Being professional photographers, we use up all of the frame in pics… (depending on subject)

Is there any plans for Blurb to print in true ratios? ie 6×4 , 12×8, etc

I dont like the bars (white space) and cannot crop the images to fit all in.

 Also – would really like to see a coffee table size in landscape . Like 18×12 inch… options for 4pg spread fold out would be nice too.

 

What do you guys think ?

Book Preview
Web Features

Since we are selling (hopefully for overseas authors) our books, ive come across a little something that you may be able to adjust …

When in the bookstore and clicking on the preview book link – is there any way that BLURB.COM can make it so that we (as publishers) can determine which pages that we would like previewed? My book has many photographers work’s in there and unfortunately for the others that are in there as well, they dont even get a look in for the preview… which in some cases are better pics than the first 10pages therefore REDUCING my capacity to sell the books….

Please allow us to edit which pages we would like PREVIEWED

Booksmart Suggestions

To the staff of Blurb

 This is just a few things that may i suggest for making this fantastic concept a little easier.

 1. We have a book preview – but what about a print preview – where we can print a few pages to make sure us noobies have it right !

2. The new Invite Contributors – my book is a collaberation of numerous photographers, is there a way that we could make into a PDF and email it to them for approval?

 Just a few suggestions for maybe the next release of the prog

cheers

Zooming in !
Book Design and Imaging

I dont know if ive read something  somewhere, but i placed an image on the page layout as full page – now if i zoom into a part of the pic and leave it as so, will that now be printed as such? ie , zoomed in … the icon is NOT showing as for resolution. Any help is appreciated … cheers
