Memory book for school

by Patty Gray, 26 Apr 2010 (06:14 UTC)
Our PTA is interested in making a photo book (yearbook) for the students at our school. Will we be able to set up the book so that individual families can order their own copies?
thanks
Patty

Sharing Book

by Megan, 03 Dec 2009 (17:02 UTC)
I am trying to share my book with family to let them order. I do not want a commission however, I would like them to have the option to view the pages in the book. I can do this in my account but they are only able to see the cover through the link. Did I miss a step?

This is the link I have... http://www.prestophoto.com/shop/58164#

I can see pages in my account but they cannot.

Thanks for your help!

Megan,

Edit the product, scroll down, and check "Show Preview".

This will allow your family to see both the preview PDF and Pageflip preview.

I can't seem to find the "show preview" option when I edit the product. Am I missing something?
