Creating and Uploading Your Own Photo Book Pages

by Gary Yip on October 18, 2012

Uploading a custom page is easy with our easy to use photo book maker online!

If you or your students created a custom page in an outside program, such as Photoshop or InDesign. You can simply upload the page into your Mixbook project.

While this gives you complete designing freedom, there are a few guidelines to ensure the best photo prints.

DO follow the background Uploading Tips.

Premade Page DimensionsThe dimensions given in this tab are accurate for your book. Keep in mind, these dimensions change for each photo book size, so make sure you have selected the correct size! Although your photo editing program may see this as a large file, it will ensure that your page will print out beautifully in your Mixbook.

DO NOT forget to add the bleed dimensions given in the Uploading Tips box.

Adding the Bleed Area
After creating your initial canvas, increase your canvas print size by adding the second set of dimensions to the existing canvas.

DO fill your canvas with a solid color, before adding your bleed area.

Solid Color PageWith this solid color in place, you can view your bleed area or border. This allows you to bleed elements way off the page, or keep them from being trimmed.

DO NOT be afraid to really get creative.

Seek out program tutorials so you can really learn all the tools it offers. While Mixbook is continually improving it’s editor, there are some features your photo editing programs may already offer. Make sure to take advantage of them!
