OOPS! Mistakes in the final book
Book Design and Imaging

 Unfortunately, that’s exactly what you have to do. I just had the same thing happen to me. :::sigh:::

Disappointed in print quality
BookSmart

Well .. I’m glad you’re amazed. Nice to do that to someone at least once a day.

I have used Blurb many times before and have always been happy with their product. However, the last couple of times I used them, I have been less than pleased. I am not expecting them to be the same as a professional lab … if I were, I would be using my lab. I asked the question because there seemed to be a change in the quality. If they are using differant printers, paper, or settings then it would be good to know that so adjustments can be made.

Disappointed in print quality

Has something changed in the printing at Blurb? The last couple of books I have received, I have been quite disappointed in the quality of the printing. The images are looking more and more like they are printed on low quality inkjet printers—one of the reasons why I switched from the mac books. I would like to stay with Blurb, but at this point, my professional lab, albeit more expensve, gives me a much better quality image. While, for the most part, I have no problem with the colours, the image itself looks dotted and less than photo quality. I understand that different printers are used for the smaller Blurb books, but these are the 8×10 books.

Little Yellow Icon Question
BookSmart

On one of my custom pages, I have a little yellow icon showing up. According to the FAQ, it means that the image is too low of a resolution. However, checking the page image, it is 300 dpi 2884×2471 so I am really confused. Please advise!
