Last week, we got some tips from Jay about how to design layouts using the Edit Layouts tool in Blurb BookSmart®. This week he provides some finishing touches:

If you’ve made a layout you really like, you can save it for future books of the same size. Just click on the Apply & Save to My Layouts button in the Edit Layout mode to save it. ↓

When you want to use that layout again, look over to the Choose Page Layoutsection, click on the drop down menu, choose the My Page Layouts option, and then click on your customized layout, adding it to your project. ↓

There are a few places in BookSmart where you can’t edit your layouts. The flaps for a dust jacket cannot be edited, and the logo we add to the last page cannot be covered or moved (it can be removed or replaced with your own logo, premium options you can find by double clicking on the logo).

However, you can add text and/or images around the area of the logo. Simply bring up the last page, add a Text or Image Box (or both). Just keep them clear of the area where the logo appears and you will be good to go. ↓

You can also use this tool to layer images over images or just use it to make your pages look any way you would like. Having the chance to customize your pages will help you to make a book that’s truly unique. ↓
