In Topic: Photo Books

Yesterday, 08:09 AM

Hi, Karen


I just received the photo books I made of my summer trip - four copies.  I created the facing pages together, but on separate 12 x 12 templates (which were resized later), so I had a 12 x 24 workspace.  Of course, it's possible to create in one large space and then crop into two pages.  


The printing company I used, My PicTales, does have the option to upload a two-page spread, and provides templates so you can see what space is "safe" and what will be trimmed.  I didn't use this option, but it's available.  I did find the uploading process to be a bit frustrating at times, but it worked, eventually, and the printed books were just fine.  Hope this helps.

In Topic: Gallery Layouts

24 October 2014 - 06:51 AM

I have a large collection of saved layouts from the gallery, which I store in an iPhoto library (Mac).  When I see a page with aspects I really like, and might want to use for inspiration (or even scraplifiting) I right click on it and save to my desktop.   I'm able to save images from the gallery and the newsletter. Then I open the image in PSE, add the URL from the gallery so I can link it if I do need to credit it later.  On the PSE page I add the creator's name, list of products if appropriate, and notes about what caught my eye.  I save the file as a jpg and file in iPhoto, attaching keywords to help me find it - children, scenery, heritage, etc.   It never needs to be printed.  I think other photo storing programs, such as Picasa, would work for this, or you could create your own filing system.  Hope this helps!
