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
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,
