How do photo books work…? (continued)

The photo book application is very rich and there are numerous tools available.
short glossary of the main icons and available functions.

This is what your photo book creation screen looks like:

A clear, spacious and rich interface. When we created this application our main concern was your ease of use. We took special care over the ergonomics of our solution: look at the icons, they are self explanatory, which is the guarantee of flowing and intuitive use.

We are going to present them below to familiarise you with this new tool.

5
The “SAVE” and “RETURN TO THE LAST SAVED VERSION” buttons
 


Regularly save your photo book while you create it by clicking on the diskette button. This makes it possible for you to have a reference point to fall back to! If you make a mistake, click on the “Return to the last saved version” button (showing a watch with its hands turning backwards). You will restore the photo book as it was when you last saved it. Handy isn’t it!

6
The “PREVIEW” button

“THE CREATION ZONE”
 

This is obviously where it all happens! This is zone the zone you use to change your album and view those changes in real time.
Fill the image blocks using basic drag and drop from your selection of photos (available to the right of your screen) to the block you have selected. Use the text areas to comment your photos or write down your thoughts…

Have you noticed? When you drag an image over this creation zone, a small triangle appears in the upper right or left corner of the page…drop the image in the centre of the page or on the triangle….and watch what happens!

Our photo book application is filled with resources! Be curious, test, search, creating your photo book will be even more fun.

The “PHOTO SELECTION “
 


Here you will find all the photos you selected and which are available to create your photo book. When a picture has already been used a small dot appears at the top right of the thumbnail and indicates how many times you used the photo in your book… this is practical to avoid repeating yourself!!!

10
The “NAVIGATE” button
 


The “NAVIGATE” buttons on either side of the creation zone are used to scroll forward or backward through your photo book’s pages.

11
The “BLEED” button
 


Bleed is a technical area used by the printer when printing the book. It is partially or completely removed when your photo book is assembled and bound. It is therefore essential that it does not contain any important information… The “BLEED” button shows or hides the marks that allow you to identify these areas, we strongly recommend that you keep this function active and be careful in aligning your pictures!

barUsing this tool you can switch from one page to another of your photo book in a single click. You can either use the horizontal bar by clicking on the “Cover”, “Page 1″, “Page 2″, etc. buttons, or you can click on the index (“Go to” button) which contains a list of all the pages.

The single arrows are used to scroll through the pages one by one, whereas the double arrows take you directly to the first or last page.

13
The “PAPER TYPE » and « NUMBER OF PAGES” button
 

It would be difficult to be more explicit! These 2 buttons are used to change the support that will be used to print your photo book and the number of pages required. You made these choices when you began creating your photo book, but anyone can make a mistake!

14
The “ORDER” button
 


order…but don’t worry, if you have sudden doubts you can always re-check and re-verify and make last minute changes, add a picture etc. Until you have paid, nothing is permanent. Reassuring isn’t it?
