Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Uploading your book to Blurb, part of Creating Photo Books with Blurb.
When you finish designing your book in BookSmart, you will upload it to Blurb,…so that it can be ordered and printed on demand.…To show you the upload process, I've opened a fresh copy of the file that I've…been working on throughout this chapter.…This is the finished version of this book.…I've added text and image to every page.…Before uploading, it's always a good idea to preview the book. I can do that by…clicking the Preview Book button here or by going to the Publish menu and…choosing Preview Book.…If I forget to preview the book and I just choose Order Book, I get this warning…from BookSmart reminding me to preview the book. I'll click OK, and that will take…me into the Preview mode as well.…
I'll check the text and image on the cover elements and then I will click this…arrow and I'll check every page of the book.…Particularly when I have a full bleed image on a page, an image that comes all…the way out to the edge of the page.…I want to make sure that during the manufacturing process I won't lose…
