A letter to Blurb's CEO and Board of Directors
General Interest

II agree about the Forums.  I’ve never gotten a helpful answer from Yahoo Answers. I just discovered tthe Forums are gone – terrible idea. I’ve been seriously considering doing my books elsewhere since the prices and postage have increased drastically.  If the Forums are now gone I see no good reason to stay with Blurb once I finish my current book.

Editing Afterwards - Changing Cover
Book Design and Imaging

If you downloaded the book to Blurb and it appears in Bookstore, you can delete it. You should be able to go into your book in the edit mode and make changes.

Adding a page to the front of a 70 page book pushes everything into the ...
BookSmart

I think the problem occurs because you’re dealing with left & right pgs. Every time I have created a page layout, saved it & then used it again on a facing pg., I’ve had to adjust the images to get them out of the pink zone. I haven’t found another way to make the correction.

Blurb doesn't import all selected pictures
Book Design and Imaging

I’ve had the same problem & a different one. I import a photo and get 2 copies of it. If I delete one of the copies, the 2nd copy also disappears.

Can I do this?
BookSmart

Yes you can, then delete the book after you’ve viewed it. Blurb will delete the book after 15 days if no one including you has bought a copy. Pages w/nothing on them will print blank.

adding more than 1 image to page?
Book Design and Imaging

You need to add more than one photo box to a pg to be able to add more than one photo.

The rose colored area is the actual possible area that may be cropped when book is published. It’s safer not to put anything within the pink area.

A very basic question.....
Ordering and Shipping

If your book is in the bookstore anyone can order a copy or copies. I don’t think there is a limit. Blurb handles everything when the book is ordered from the Bookstore.

Canvas Border Around Image Not Showing Up in Booksmart
Book Design and Imaging

Did you create the photo with 2 borders in another program  & then add it to the book as a single photo or did you try to add 2 borders directly to a photo in the book? You can only add one border to a photo in the book. If the look you want was created in another program I don’t know why it doesn’t work.

Why can't I edit the layout in two-page spreads so I can add captions?
BookSmart

Right click on 2-pg spread. Click on Break spread. You can then edit the pg. You can’t reconnect the pgs.

My Latest Book
General Interest

Every year I make a photobook of our life in ME. The 2011 version arrived today. We had a busy yr – it’s 200 pgs. Two new greatgranddaughters added to the size of the book. For the most part it looks great. I still have a problem figuring out when to lighten a photo so it doesn’t print too dark.. A few of the lightened pics are a little lighter than I expected. The 2-pg spreads that I did using the new 2-pg spread layout worked quite well. The one I did the old way didn’t come out right. Part of the problem may have been my fault but I also think that the pgs weren’t trimmed where they should have been. I had the edges of the photos right against the outer edge of the prink area. There is a white border around the edge which should not be there. Overall, I like the book-used premium paper.  Some of my photos look much better than I expected. I am already working on 2 other books.

SPAM ON FORUMS

I see there are still items for sale being listed on the Forum. This has been going on for several months. Think we need some kind of filter.

Book Categories
General Interest

I have made a Blurb photo book each year of our life in Portland, ME- for the 3 yrs we have lived here- family, local trips, etc.. It’s meant for family members and friends altho I list it as Public. There is no category of books that really fits this kind of a book – an advanced version of the scrapbooks I used to keep. Perhaps the Blurb crew can create an approriate category.

Margins and Content on the Page
Book Design and Imaging

The pink area on the bound side is bigger than the pink area on the far side. Thay may have something to do with it.

Random Layouts
Book Design and Imaging

I just tried this and it worked. Hold down the Shift key & click on the photos in your library that you want on a pg. Right click on one of the photots & click on Add to Book. The photos you chose should appear randomly on the pg. If the image boxed aren’t the same size & the photos have not been sized to fit, you will have to do some editing. Hope I understood your question correctly.

I had the same problem last month except my info was in German instead of English. I went to the Your Blurb tab at top of page, clicked on Your Books. In upper right corner it lists thelanguage. I had to reset mine to English a couple of times to get it to work.

address to give people who want to order book themselves
General Interest

Do they want to order your book? If so,they need the URL of your book. If they want to order someone else’s book, they need the URL of that book which they will find when the look at the book preview.

bookstore & comments
Web Features

I don’t understand your question. Your book has to be Public to get comments. If you mean you don’t want other people to be able to preview your book, you have to make it Private.

As far as I know, you can’t get your Blurb book printed by an outside printer.
