We wanted to make it super easy and super instant to make a book with your Facebook photos. And really you can make one in just about five minutes. But if you like to tinker with design, there are some ways you can make your book truly your own.
Just start making a book with your Facebook photos and select “Edit Book” once your photos are imported. You’ll then be taken into Blurb Bookify™ which gives you more creative control. Simply flip to the page you want to change. ↓
1) Play with the font: Simply select the text and change the font, font size, or color. Here, I increased the size, centered the text, and made it bold for the main comment. I also increased the size of the second comment a bit. ↓
2) Choose a new layout: The automatically chosen layout was fine, but I found another I liked better, that would show more of the scooters. I just click the “Choose Layout” icon under the book (it looks like three panels stuck together) and found one that put the second comment below the picture. ↓
3) Change the background color: I wanted the background to echo the color in that red scooter. So I clicked the “Choose Background and Borders” tool below the page (it’s the button that looks like an artist’s pallet). I then chose to “Sample a color” and I clicked around with the eyedropper until I found the background color that I liked. ↓
4) Finish it up: Once it was all together I decided that the gray of my friends’ names didn’t really stand out, so I selected the names and changed the font colors for better contrast. I also thought the main comment was too high, so I did a carriage return to knock it down to the next line. Finally, I added a background color to the facing page to really make it pop. ↓
Contrasting colors, matching backgrounds, bigger font: Now it’s got the zing worthy of a red vespa and yellow Warhol banana. It only took me another couple of minutes to make the changes. Which is good, because now I’m addicted, and I’m going to want to personalize the rest of the pages.
