For the time being however, I am posting a couple of pages from the book to get some advice on formatting. It seems that most POD services will reject any pages where a text element goes across a 2-page spread. I am posting this picture here to ask for some advice from the community.
|The above image is two separate pages while one below is a 2-page spread.|
|This is a jpg created from the original CMYK Photoshop file.|
|For this one, I changed the Photoshop file to RGB before exporting.|
Obviously, the colours for the third are what I was going for. The second is off by quite a bit. This is something I need to learn more about. What I understand so far is that RGB is for screens (Red, Green and Blue being the 3 primary colours when looking at light) while CMYK is for print. Nevertheless, when I printed this on paper, the CMYK version still looked too saturated compared to the RGB version.
I completed the book and published it successfully in both print and digital formats. I am now maintaining teacherben.com as a site to promote my books (the next one is nearly complete) and using teacherben.net for showcase and sharing my professional work. Please have a look at teacherben.com if you want to learn more.
