Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring the BookSmart interface, part of Creating Photo Books with Blurb.
Let's review the interface of BookSmart so that you're comfortable using the program.…I'll start down here at the bottom of the screen where there's a filmstrip that…contains some thumbnails.…The thumbnails represent the covers and the pages of this book.…You can use the filmstrip to navigate through the pages to the book.…So if I drag this scrollbar all the way over to the right, you can see all the…thumbnails that represent the 20 pages in this book. And by the way, 20 is the…minimum number of pages that you can have in a Blurb book.…Let's go back over here where there's already some content in this book.…
You remember from the beginning of this chapter that I asked the Setup wizard…to auto flow some photos into a starter layout and that's where these four photos came from.…The Setup wizard put these photos on the first content pages of this book.…One of the things that I can do in the filmstrip is take a page with its content…and move it somewhere else in the book.…For example, I could click on this page and drag it over this way and drop it there.…
