Create, print, and sell professional-quality photo books, magazines, trade books, and ebooks with Blurb! Chose from several free tools or use Adobe InDesign or.

So the question is how did my experiences with BookSmart fare.

I am going to split this into two, the experiences as a user and designer and my technical impressions. User Experience I like BookSmart a lot to use, it is very intuitive and simple to use.

After importing an image into an image box I was zooming and panning it to set the crop.

It is hard to get fine adjustment of this and as a result I got small cracks though the background between a few images. On some pages these show up when zoomed out and some they only showed up when I zoomed in.

There are two things that could really improve this problem: adding support for moving an image small amounts with the arrow keys and adding some indication symbol when there is a small gap between the image and the frame. The other thing is I would have liked more creative control.

I know it is a hard balance between making the application simple for consumers and powerful enough to keep the power users happy.

There is not much of extra functionality I would like: choice of custom colors for background color. The big one is more flexibility with layouts, either though custom layouts or just a few more layouts.

There are not many layout that suit images of either of these aspect ratios. I liked they way that you can upload the book and go online later to buy them, which meant that I can easily leave it uploading overnight as it takes over an hour.

It would be nice if I could create a PDF of the book directly without any watermarks.

I have printed a version to PDF with Apples PDF support but it has proof watermarks which is a shame although at least they are subtle. Technical Experience I have long been saying that it is possible to build high class desktop applications with Java and Swing even in challenging areas like images, DTP and video.

So getting good performance is quite a challenge as I have about 5Gb of photos in my book and most are 14Mpix which take So with a double spread with 4 images per page means processing Mb of images.

Print 1 or 1, Blurb announced a partnership with Amazon [5] in April Have a project ready to go in PDF format? I hope Blurb didn't decide to create BookWright as a complete re-write of BookSmart, because the software industry typically sees that as bad idea!
