Blurb Download Mac

Posted on by admin

You may already be making books and cards using the built-in capabilities of iPhoto. But there are other sources out there for making books too.

Blurb BookSmart is a free application with which you can make an entire book manually or using the assistant tool. It is composed of four simple steps: select the size of the book, a template design, the title, and the pictures that you wish to include. Blur is a racing game that is so fast, the cars move in a “blur”. This is a real hidden gem and a fantastic racing game that is more about arcade speed than it is a sim and that is what makes it such a fun game.

  • Hold the command key on your Mac or control key on your PC to select multiple photos or videos. Click and hold the download icon in the upper corner of the window. If you want to download your photo or video as it was originally captured or imported, choose Unmodified Original.

  • Blurb Tally is a writer's utility, designed to help you to quickly and easily calculate the number of characters, words, and paragraphs in a blurb of text. Once launched, Blurb Tally hovers above the other windows and applications on your Mac.

Blurb is a piece of software you download to your computer. It’s for Mac and Windows. Then you paste images and text, you can resize images, you can format text, you can use their design themes. It’s very similar to the way iPhoto lets you create books.

The book sizes are slightly different, as are the themes, so you might like the options here more than the ones in iPhoto.

They even have a “book ideas” page, so you can see what others have done, and you can browse through other people’s books for sale, again to get an idea of the range of possibilities. None of this is available in iPhoto.

Also unlike iPhoto, Blurb has the added benefit of saving your book on its website, so that you can send people to the Blurb site to purchase copies of your book, at whatever price you specify. Blurb keeps the “printing costs” and you get to keep the markup.

If you’re not feeling confident about your design ability, Blurb allows you to find and hire a book designer.

All in all, Blurb might be an easier way to get started with creating your own book. I’ve used Blurb and found it to be easy to use, and I liked having different options than the ones in iPhoto, just to try out different design ideas.
