Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Planning a book, part of Creating Photo Books with Blurb.
It's a good idea to plan some of the technical details before you start creating a book.…I'll show you how to implement these technical choices in Blurb software in the…chapters that follow.…For now, I want to make the point that these are things to think about in…advance, so you don't get stuck changing your mind about the technical issues…halfway through your bookmaking process.…One of the first things to think about is the size of the book you're going to make.…Blurb offers a number of different sizes and shapes for photo books,…from large coffee-table books to small square-shaped books and sizes in between.…
The size that you choose depends in part on your photos.…If you shoot mostly horizontal photos, then choose one of the landscape…formats rather than a portrait format or a square format that will require you…to crop your photos.…But if you're showing off, say, iPhone or Instagram photos, then you might like…the Small Square format.…You'll also want to think about your book materials in advance.…
