Upgrade to BookSmart 1.9.2??
BookSmart

Hi there,

I have recently received my first Photobook from Blurb.  Its quality is great!  So, I’m planning to make another one for my recent trip.  The previous one was created by BookSmart 1.9.1.  I wonder if I shall upgrade the software to 1.9.2 before making the new book.

I would also like to know if I can amend my previous book with the upgraded version.  What’s the major difference between 1.9.1 and 1.9.2 version?  Kindly enlighten me.  Thanks!

Carmen

Download Picture Files from Flickr (Repost)
Book Printing

If the picture files are downloaded from flickr.com instead of uploading directly from the computer, will the file size be compressed and the picture quality be affected?I’m a bit worried about it as I find that I can’t download the original size of the pictures from flickr.com. I wonder if Blurb has some special arrangement with flickr such that original size of the picture files can be directly transferred to Blurb from flickr to ensure good picture quality. I did it because I was unable to directl use the pictures from my pc when using the Booksmart to create my photobook. Kindly enlighten me.
Cheers,
Gimme5

Is preview mode true to what will print?
Tips and Tricks

I’m a newbie here and have just uploaded and placed an order of my new book after proof-reading my book several times by the preview mode of BookSmart. 

To my dismay, one of my photos turned upside down when I viewed the Book Preview PDF file from blurb bookstore even though it is okay under the preview mode of BookSmart.   As I can only preview the first 15 pages of my book pdf version, I wonder if Blurb can ensure the final products are the same as what the authors created.

As I have already pressed the "order" button, it seems that I can do nothing except waiting for the final product.

Did you guys encounter similar problems?

Can't upload pictures from the computer
BookSmart

I have the same problem and I can only get the pictures through Flickr where I have prevously uploaded the photos.  I wonder if the original size of the pictures will be downloaded back to BookSmarts via Flickr.
