Using graphic files for interior pages and where is page 1?

Wanting to make a photobook and was wondering if it is ok to

only use graphic files for interior pages?

 

Also, is page 1 the interior cover page (back side of front cover)  or is that blank?

    Are you using the Calendar Studio Wizard or creating it as a 'normal' book?

  • Just a normal book.  I see where you can upload jpg and png files and then put them in the order you

    want before "compiling" them, but the examples are only of docx files.

     

    I keep seeing references to a photo book creation program http://connect.lulu.com/t5/Format-and-Page-Layout/What-is-a-Layout/ta-p/264289

     

    but I still don't see a link to it anywhere.

     

    I would love to just go that route.

    You can upload these to a Project Wizard >>> 

     

    Files accepted for Books:

    • DOC & DOCX (Word Document)
    • RTF (Rich Text Format)
    • PDF (Portable Document Format)
    • JPG (Joint Photographics Expert Group)
    • GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)
    • PNG (Portable Network Graphic)

    You can upload them one at a time, making sure they are in the right order, but why not create just one file? It's far easier when it comes to controlling the pages' formatting and then uploading.

    Note what size book project you select because many of them have a high min page count allowance, and some cannot have a Lulu ISBN and Dist.

    I forgot you had also asked that.

     

    No, the covers are not counted in the page count. Nothing can be printed inside them, and are part of the Cover Wizard section, not the pages file.

    Pictures are more beautiful in a photo album; I made three, and they are superb. I have one book with color pictures to illustrate it. The pictures are OK, but not so good.

    I would agree with that, but if you also want a lot of text then a 'normal' book Wizard works better.

    That would be the Lulu Studio wizard. Start on this page and create either a "Photo Perfect Bound Paperback" or a "Photo Casewrap Hardcover." You may have to scroll down to see all the options. If you then click on "make this book" it will automatically launch the Lulu Studio photo book wizard for you.

    There's no real reason one needs to convert to PDF because Lulu's converter will convert docx (and other files) to PDF. Having said that, Word will Save As a PDF.

     

    In fact having looked at your video, what you really mean is how to publish using Lulu's Project Wizards and Lulu have videos here already showing that. Nice effort though.
