Book sizes
Tips and Tricks

Reading through these forums, I find so many questions addressing the same issues—trim size versus full bleed.  I do all my pages in Photoshop and import jpegs to blurb.  I’m in the process of making another 10×8 landscape book.  Is there a template that I can import to Photoshop to make certain I have it right?

Open existing files
BookSmart

In version 1.9.5, I can’t locate my saved books.  I can locate them in earlier versions, but can’t open them up since they were made with 1.9.5, even when I reinstall 1.9.5.  I don’t seem to have anyway to tell the software where my books are, the OPEN option is grayed out.

 Please help, I’m on a big deadline, and had just finished a book.

ICC profiles BASIC Question
Book Design and Imaging

I’ve read some posts on ICC profiles, but I’m lost.  I have also had problems with the color and the exposure when printing past books in blurb.  I’m about to begin a new one and want to get it right.  My questions are:

 1)  Should my photos be in sRGB rather than Adobe RGB?  If so, I have over 400 photos I will have to go back to Photoshop to change them?

2)  The purpose of using the ICC profile is so I can print a copy and evaluate the colors before uploading, is this correct?  If so, where can I get the ICC profile and how is it uploaded?

Thank you in advance,

Freddi
