What's the recommended resolution for photos I'm using in my book?

If you are creating custom full-page bleed pages using external software, follow the guidelines below to set your page dimensions:

Landscape Classic, Classic Leather, and Classic Custom Photo Books
8x6 = 2286 pixels wide by 1800 pixels tall
11x9 = 3392 pixels wide by 2670 pixels tall
14x11 = 4200 pixels wide by 3306 pixels tall

Square Classic Custom Photo Books
8x8 = 2466 pixels wide by 2466 pixels tall
12x12 = 3666 pixels wide by 3666 pixels tall

Madison Photo Books
11x9 = 3300 pixels wide by 2598 pixels tall

Cape Cod, Modern, Ranch, and Victorian Photo Books
8x6 = 2286 pixels wide by 1800 pixels tall
11x9 = 3240 pixels wide by 2550 pixels tall

Flush Mount
11x9 = 3300 pixels wide by 2598 pixels tall
14x11 = 4192 pixels wide by 3300 pixels tall

Keep in mind that during the production process, 1/8" to 1/4" of the edge of the page may be cropped - so be sure to keep important image details out of this area. (If you are ordering lay-flat pages, there is no cropping at the center of the spread.) To view the crop zone as you're editing:

 

  1. Click on the More button near the top of the program window.
  2. Select the View menu, then click on Show Safety Zone.

The crop zone will display by default when you view your book in Preview mode.
