Things to Re­mem­ber when mak­ing a book

File for­mat

There’s no need to con­vert RGB im­ages to CMYK be­fore up­load­ing. Stick with high­res­o­lu­tion, high-qual­ity JPEGs and you can’t go wrong.

Design process

Most com­pa­nies of­fer on­line, browser-based book creators for speed and sim­plic­ity, but down­load­able soft­ware usu­ally offers more pre­cise cus­tomi­sa­tion.

On the edge

Edge-to-edge print­ing max­imises a photo’s im­pact, but the bor­der­less look will slightly crop your shot. It’s more ap­par­ent on the cover.

Flat out

A lay-flat bind­ing avoids the prob­lem of im­ages dis­ap­pear­ing where pages meet the spine.

Fin­ish­ing touch

Glossy pa­per can help boost colour vi­brancy, whereas a matte fin­ish hides fin­ger­prints. Soft-sheen lus­tre pages strike a good com­pro­mise.
