Formatting tip - the size of the picture file matters

In most cases I will be downloading your images from your blog so it is important that you keep the picture files large enough to produce quality images that fill the photo containers in your book. This first screen shot is of a two page spread where the photo files are too small. The one on the left is around 70k. That's better than the 15-22k like the two photos on the opposite page, but as you can see, the space isn't used as well as it could be. Due to small photo files this is as large as the pictures will get - regardless of which layout I use.



This is an example of using the full container and letting the best images take center stage once in a while. If you want the images in your book to be larger than 2x3,
KEEP PHOTO FILES AS CLOSE TO THEIR ORIGINAL SIZE AS POSSIBLE. EACH FILE SHOULD BE AT THE VERY LEAST 300K
