Meanwhile, just some pointers for you before you start doing your layout pages:
- Open book spread (left hand page and right hand page combined together)
- Eg: For album size of 12"x15" landscape close book, file size should be 12"x30" exactly (do not give extra bleed)
- High res JPG or PDF file , 300 pixels/inch
- Number the files in sequence: 01.jpg, 02.jpg, 03.jpg and so on
- Do not give extra bleed (we need exactly 12"x30") however please note that:
(a) We will trim all the 4 sides, ie., top, bottom, left, right for a few mm to make these sides neat
There is no exact formula as to how much we will trim, in the range of 3 mm - 6 mm, and not necessarily by the same amount on each side
In this case, we advise customer not to put important subject (text, faces of impt people) to be to close to all the 4 sides because they may be cropped away
Anything you wish to preserve, it is best to place them 0.5" or further from the sides
(b) For borders, it cant be too thin, our recommendation is border thickness of half inch (1.25 cm) or more
Reason being, we will trim all the 4 sides (top, bottom, left, right) and thin borders may be completely trimmed off.
Trimming will also affect the symmetry of your borders because if you have thin borders surrounding an image, if we trim the top say 6 mm and bottom say 3 mm, the difference will then be obvious (uneven border). Likewise with the left hand side and right hand side
