Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing your assets, part of Creating Photo Books with Blurb.
Before you start creating a book, take the time to organize your assets.…This includes what is arguably the hardest part of creating a book, editing down…and sequencing your photos.…Some people like to do that with work prints on a real table.…You can also do it in your computer using a photo organizing program like Adobe…Bridge, which you see here, or Lightroom or iPhoto or Elements.…I like to use Bridge because it's the easiest program I know for moving images around.…Here in Bridge, you can see some photographs that I took in Venice that I'm…considering for inclusion in a small photo book.…
As I choose my images and decide on their sequence, I always keep in mind…the theme of the book.…In this case, the theme of my book is going to be how dominant the spirit and…flavor of Old Venice still is.…I want all my images to fit that theme.…I've already done some photo editing and then I put the edited photos into…a single folder that's easy to access from over here in the Folders panel in Bridge.…
