I know you Craftsters out there can help me!

I am making a photobook and decided to use Scrapblog to do the pages. My plan was to export them as jpgs then upload them to Snapfish and stick them in a book. It worked only Snapfish is saying my resolution is too low and not recommended for printing! I am looking to do 8.5" x 11" page. So I want to know, does anyone know how to export at a higher resolution?? Or maybe there is another photobook company where this is not a problem?

Alternatively, if I can't get that to work, does anyone know a free program similar to Scrapblog? The simple templates that Snapfish provides don't do it for me but I'm not about to do a layout from scratch in Photoshop.

Thanks in advance!!

I think the Scrapblog templates are only meant to be viewed on the computer, not to be printed.  So the pictures it makes are a lower resolution, not enough to fill up an entire sheet of paper without being blurry or pixellated.  That's why Snapfish is giving you the warning... you can still have them printed, they just won't be great quality.


If you Google "free scrapbook layouts" it comes up with lots of results!

You could try saving each individual slide onto a CD and take it to a Kinkos or a place like that.

Hi,

I work at Scrapblog! We are working on turning on high-quality printing. As you can tell, we do allow you to export your pages as JPEGs and these are at the full size 900x600 resolution which is good for a 4x6. We are working with printing partners to enable really high end printing for 8x12 photo books. We want to find a balance between price and quality and are still searching.

Here is a tutorial on how to make a great printed book with your Scrapblog pages for $10!
