PDF to Book has arrived! We know many of you have been clamoring for the ability to make books using the design tool of your choice, and upload directly to Blurb. We got the message, and after a herculean effort from the team, PDF to Book is all yours, bringing you complete creative control in the application of your choice.
Here’s how this works: we provide you with our pre-made templates for Adobe® InDesign®, or you can use our pre-determined guidelines and specs for all our book sizes and cover types in other programs. Design your book from cover to cover in CMYK and use any native file formats (TIFF, EPS, PNG, etc) for stunning text and image quality. With PDF to Book you can also wrap your cover image, or add an image, to the spine of your book. Did we mention this is complete creative control? Rich colors, sharp text, full flexibility – PDF to Book is unlike anything Blurb has offered before.
That said, we know PDF to Book isn’t for everybody, and don’t worry – BookSmart isn’t going anywhere. In fact we’re already cranking on the next release. And whether you use BookSmart or PDF to Book, you’ll still be able to share, market and sell your book using our online Bookstore and marketing tools. If you act quickly, you can give PDF to Book a spin for your submission to Photography.Book.Now, and a chance to win $25,000 (deadline is July 16).
To get the nitty gritty details on templates and upload specs, visit our PDF to Book page, and for those of you currently attending the HOW Conference in Austin, swing by our booth to check out some books made using PDF to Book!
