Possible new forum categories
General Interest

I’d like to recommend a new separate forum for the folks using Photoshop and other programs to create whole page images that are then "uploadable" into Blurb as jpgs.  Might help cut down on the "Blurb doesn’t let me do everything I want to" whining, while letting folks connect with users who are at a similar skill level.

At the same time, maybe consider adding a forum called "Wish List" or some such… folks could post (and maybe even vote on) the developments they’d most like to see in Blurb.

 Thanks for your work, everyone… this is exciting stuff!

if anyone wants a few photoshop scrapbook layouts..
Book Design and Imaging

Once you’ve finished a page in PhotoShop, save it in .jpg format, and then upload the entire page as one image to Blurb.

Newbie here- Moving text?
Book Design and Imaging

I changed the typeface of my title page and centered it using the editing tools within BookSmart.  Did you figure it out?

Still can't upload
BookSmart

Yay, I heard back from tech support promptly (thanks, Molly M!), they helped me with some trouble-shooting, and I figured out that the problem was mostly a firewall issue here at work (I had never run up against the firewall before, so was basically oblivious to it)... once I connected to a server with a less constricted view of the world, I was able to upload through BookSmart and order my book!

Is anyone having NO problems uploading at the moment?  I am also having trouble uploading.  I am running OS 10.4.11 on a MacBook, using Firefox v. 2.0.0.3, and get "unable to connect" and "cover didn’t upload" messages.

I also get an intermittent yellow triangle w/ exclamation point on my front & back cover (but only in the bottom scroll panel, not on the editing window itself), and it’s not there all the time… gone now, for instance. 

Emailed tech support, am hoping to hear back from them soonish.
