If you are curious about the software mentioned in my previous blog entry Blurb.com for book publishing here is a screen shot showing the basic elements the free Booksmart software.
Basically you work through the pages in the film-strip area across the bottom of the screen. Click on a page in the film-strip to make that page show up in the largest portion of the Booksmart screen. This is where one edits a page. Note that I have chosen to black for the background color on each page.
Pictures I've pre-selected appear on the lower left half of the screen in the "My Imported Pictures" though I may certainly elect to gather more photos to this list.
Changing the layout of a page is made by choosing options above the picture list in the "Apply Page Layout" area.
Ol' Myrt is VERY excited about this project, particularly since I have seen the results in that book at my doctor's office.
Happy family tree climbing!
