Reproduce old scrapbooks

by alliehop, 05 Jan 2017 (14:05 UTC)
I want to reproduce my scrapbooks that are in 3 ring binders 8.5x11. I am scanning in the pages and bringing the image into the new photo book but it looks like the image will be cropped and I will lose some of my image. How do I shrink my image to fit within the borders? I don't care if there is a white border around the edge.

Flip preview

Flip review is not showing some updated pages on my latest project.
It's also showing pages with a tiled effect on my older projects done years ago.

Re: Flip preview

I am having the same problem with flip preview. I duplicated a book, made some changes to it. 5 of the 6 changes show correctly in new version "flip preview" but there is one (page 21/48 of ID: 236265) which stubbornly refuses to update after several attempts. When I go to "layout preview" or edit mode the correct (updated) image is there. So I have no idea how book will turn out when printed.

Hello, I don't understand how to get around the red area cropping. I have a cookbook designed at exactly 6" x 9" (the pdf file is exactly these dimensions). I chose that file size from your available size list. Your preview generator gizmo showed my cookbook with a significant portion of the book hacked off on all sides in the "red box". How big do I need to design the file to so that I don't lose anything to cropping? I will just add enough white space around the whole file. At the end of the day I want a 6"x9" cookbook though...and I don't want any white space on the edges. If you can't do this, please let me know. Thanks =] Project ID: 236196

Hi Darrel! In order to provide more information on this we would need the six digit Product ID that your project has, generally found in the address bar when editing your book or after clicking Buy Now". Once you have that, send us an email with the information to and we can investigate further. :)

Have a great day!

Why in the heck do you make it so hard to find and order a specific book? If I, a creator of about one new title a month, can't find a book you made for me two months ago to order it for a customer, how can I expect my customers to be able find and order the book they want on their own?

PowerPoint for mac2011

by Richard, 05 May 2016 (14:46 UTC)
I've recently got a new Macbook and have been making a photobook in PowerPoint, which is PowerPoint for Mac 2011. I have saved my file as a pdf via the PowerPoint "Save As" menu, can I not upload this?
On the website it says this version of "powerPoint is not eligible"??

Re: PowerPoint for mac2011

by connie, 10 May 2016 (12:41 UTC)
Oh my, PowerPoint can be hard in that the PDF may not save out at 300 dpi which will result in blurry / fuzzy images in your book. Please do check out our page for PowerPoint,+PowerPoint,+and+Word and honestly, exporting the slides to .jpgs at 300 dpi is a great option. You can put all the .jpgs in a folder on your desktop and drag that folder to your PrestoPhoto account — easy :)
