TE books - Layouts
I think it would be interesting to bring all suggestions about the layout of TE Book here together to discus, any creative suggestion or proposition here would be most welcome

Tanks Jack
I have seen it and think that there are sime good ideas already in it
I think also a white background can be used or maybe a totally black one
I add a quick example to it on white from my <a href="">Pbase site</a>

dont look at the top links or bottom comments

Re: TE books - Layouts
nice Jack, I like it, but I may suggest to add more space for text, or at least define how long can be the photographer´s note.

I prefer not to have frames, just the plain white background for all the book.

Re: TE books - Layouts
I agree about the frames. No frames is the best idea for the book, and next to the photo a note. Simplicity is best.

Re: TE books - Layouts
I agree with the white background and no-border photos.

But i think we shouldn't restrict to a single photo with note per page, tends to be boring...

If sometimes you can use a one page photo, there will be pages were we could add 2 smaller photos maybe.

Re: TE books - Layouts
true. Some photos will have to be in large format and some can be in a smaller format. One photo I plan on submitting has to be a large format photo due to the detail.

Re: TE books - Layouts
I will also recommend variations, still when a lay out is choosen it should be used, but adopted for the different pages.

IE: Photos will be in different formats. Page usage will depend also on the photo format, vertical or horizontal adjusted.

As in the example: Main space for the photo with no frames, exept maybe a 1 px black frame (tat will be added in the printhouse) - text in dark grey - coloumns for: Data Notes and Place.

Re: TE books - Layouts
Yes Jack, off course, i've seen your layout and think it's a good one.

We also need to define some aspects:

- Size: 6x9; A4; A3?
- Lettering size/colours (agree with dark grey or black)
- Paper Orientation: Portrait (vertical); Landscape (Horizontal)

IMHO i would go por A4 Portrait standart format

MInimum resolution of the files?
To have a good quality print?

This is important to clarify before posting pictures...

2 MP? 3.2MP?
