Blurb BookSmart® 2.0 is ready for you to download and includes a bunch of new features that give you the tools and freedom to take your creativity to new levels.
First, we’re ecstatic to announce a new book size, available immediately – 12×12 Large Square! People were crazy for the Small Square, and a lot of our people – creative professionals especially – have been craving a larger square book size. We tested the Large Square and quickly realized it was a must. Starting at $59.95, the Large Square book is hard to say no to.
And now, some more detail on BookSmart’s many new features (for even more detail on all the bells & whistles, click here).
For starters, you can customize your book layouts, right down to the pixel. We’re talking flexible containers – you control the size, location, layers, content type – everything. We’ve also created precision tool bars, gridlines for quick visual guidance, and the ability to save your designs as custom layouts to use again and again.
Along with page and cover layouts, we’ve made it easy to save your entire customized book as a book template, using as many elements of your custom design as you’d like. Now you can use your favorite custom book designs every time you start a new book. These workflow improvements will make future book projects a breeze.
We’ve also improved how BookSmart handles text and images – use find and replace for quick text edits, and enjoy faster loading and image caching. We also added 24-bit color depth support, and improved support for Vista.
So get to it – let your creative genius run wild with the newest version of BookSmart, available for download right here.
