How to use Booksmart software

What type of images does Booksmart accept?


1. BookSmart accepts JPG or PNG files. PNGs should be 8-bit and non-interleaced. No TIFF, EPS, PDF, PICT, BMP, and GIF files.
2. Images should be in RGB or Grayscale (sRGB recommended; no CMYK).
3. The resolution of images loaded into BookSmart should be 150DPI minimum; 300DPI maximum. Out-of-camera JPGs are fine and don't need to be resized unless you're placing many high-resolution JPGs on a single page (for instance, into a yearbook-type layout).

Scanned images and/or PNGs should be smaller than 15MB. The width of vertically oriented scans or PNGs should be less than 4000 pixels; the height of horizontal scans or PNGs should also be less than 4000 pixels. Adding images that exceed those recommended limits may slow BookSmart's performance, introduce compression artifacts into your images, stall uploading, and/or prevent your book from being printed.

If any image you've loaded into BookSmart doesn't meet these guidelines, please open the source file(s) in a photo-editing program, make the necessary changes, save the image(s) with a different file name (to  preserve your full-size source file) and load the optimized image(s) into your BookSmart project.

Short Answer: You will have to use JPEGs for your photos, but keep them at a high resolution.
