Hi, when choosing ImageWrap, how can you calculate the Cover/Back size? (I'd like to create my own photobook) Since this is my first book I am designing, do you have any tips I should pay attention to? 300 dpi, CMYK, 3mm margins in every corner. What else?

If you could send me a e-mail as well to ruben@rubencress.com that would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Ruben, Yes 300 dpi is great and will ensure your images look great as a printed image. Here is a link to our page on covers https://www.prestophoto.com/help/Book+Cover+Specifications Check out that page and if you have any questions please send a note to support

Is 160 the max?

by Sarah, 09 Feb 2012 (04:16 UTC)
I see with pro-binding, you can do slightly bigger books. Is 160 pages the max? (for an 8.5 square hardcover book)

Uploading PDF file

by Cameron Smith, 11 Oct 2011 (02:11 UTC)
I designed my 8.5x8.5 interior pages as 17x8.5 pages. I saved a Hi-Res PDF and uploaded. When previewing the interior pages that I uploaded, the full spreads (2 sides) are as one page. Is there a way to upload PDF's in a full spread ratio where I do not have to split the pages before creating my PDF file?

Greetings from PrestoPhoto, thank you for your email!

Our system does not allow for any full spread layout uploads. We do however have a great screencast on how to create a 2 page spread: http://www.youtube.com/user/awesomephotobooks?feature=mhee#p/u/3/OFfOzq1_OeE

If you have any further questions please let us know!
