BookShow image preview does not show up in WordPress blog
Web Features

I’m trying to upload my BookShow preview  into my WordPress blog, but all I get is a text link to my Blurb bookstore.  Isn’t there supposed to be a graphic image of my book in the preview?  I’ve copied and pasted the code into the HTML on the blog, but no graphics.

Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

Enlighten me on how to get great image quality in my books..... Please...
Book Design and Imaging

I’ve just received my first effort and although I was very pleased with overall sharpness and other quality of the book, I felt that the photographs were all a bit too heavy (dark) and contrasty compared to the originals.

My images were black and white scanned from original gelatin silver (wet darkroom) prints.  Using Photoshop, I applied an adjustment curve to each image and slightly reduced the density of the shadows and lowered the contrast slightly.  I have just uploaded a second version of the book and will see if I estimated my correction properly when I receive it.

I’m still learning about digital colour management, but from what I know so far, you really have to compare the print output to the screen output to guage how to apply the corrections.  My images look good on the computer, but that’s no guarantee on the final look in ink.
