Colors and profiles
BookSmart

?? Thanks for you comment but I do not understand. The Blurb color profile is something I installed on my computer to work with the screen – not the programme. the problem is that I on the same screen look at the same picture at the same time from two different programs and get two different results.

Colors and profiles
BookSmart

I use a calibrated screen with Blurb profile on it (an Eizo CG223W) but when I look at a photo in Lightroom and Booksmart they look different (I have both programs open at the same time and the pictures are visible on the screen side by side). In the Booksmart program they look much more colorful and saturated. Why is this? does anyone know? I expected that the colors are ruled by the screen and not the programme but this proved to be incorrect. Does anyone know what to do to get the same colors from both programs?

BookSmart and completed projects

Once the book is published do you keep it in the BookSmart software or would you recommend to Export it and keep in a backup place?

Software does not reopen once exited
BookSmart

If I am in Booksmart and close it down (properly by using either Exit of X) I cannot then reopen the software but have to go to Task manager, force close the process and then I can reopen the software.

Does anyone have any idea about what’s wrong?

Blah! This year weekly planner template doesn´t allow changes for....
BookSmart

Hmm – I agree with you. I also tried to change the language but did not succeed. One should either be able to edit the names or (less preferably unless the language of all countries represented by Blurbians are available) there should be a possibility to choose between languages.

2013 Planner Template?
BookSmart

Would have wanted to comment directly on this earlier post but it has been closed.

Mike – I have downloaded your monthly calendar template and just wanted to say that they are great!!

 My only "problem" is that they are in English and not in my mother tongue but I guess I will have to live with that :-)) – (or spend hours to be a copy cat of yours).

How thick is a weekly planner?
BookSmart

I have been searching around now for a while but cannot find the answer anywhere. If I make a weekly planner with 156 pages per the template how thick will it be?

Is there anyplace on the site where I can find this type of info? Have not been succesful in my searching.

Ebook and copyright
General Interest

How secured are my pictures and my copyright using an ebook? If someone downloads one of my books as an ebook – can they easily (or with some extra work) be "taken" by the downloader and used in another context? Does anyone know?

Convert from book to ebook
Book Printing

By using the facility convert from Book to ebook does this mean that the original paperprintable version is gone or do one have the option for both?

Lightroom plug in does not republish edited photos
BookSmart

I use the plug in for LR3. Having edited a photo they show up in the upper part under Photos to be repulished. No matter how many times I press Publish now they do not clear from that box. I then went back to BookSmart and could see that the photo there was actually the edited one so obviously iit had transferred. But how do I get rid of them from the Photos-to-be-republished-box?

I have installed the HP500 color profiel and can choose it in Photoshop E7 but not in Lightroom although it is saved in the same place as all the other. I did close and restart Lightroom but can still not select it. Any hints?

7x7 book pages
Book Design and Imaging

Hi Tony all your hints are very valuable. Being more or less beginner (or at least I still feel like one) both with Blurb and the digital world altoghether most things are confusing. In particular sizing and color spaces. However, would you think this to be a correct work process?

1) Fix the picture to your liking in Lightroom.

2) Export it as fullsized JPEG (or maybe DNG?) to Photoshop Elements (I use 7) setting the quality to 100%.

3) Go to Blurb and check the optimal size for that particular page.

4) Go back to PSE7 and fix the size on each photo (taking into account the trim issue). Is it for the final print in Blurb more important with the DPI or the pixel size being 300 or max 2063×2067?

5) Import the pictures to Blurb.

 Or is there any easier way to do this?
