All books are stored locally on the computer you originally used to create the book. They are not stored on Blurb’s site until you upload. Wanting to check smething from my exported (previous) book I tried to import it but although BookSmart finds the exported file my I get an error. Importing existing BookSmart or Bookify projects If you have books that were started in either Blurb® BookSmart® or Blurb® Bookify®, you.
A while ago, I wrote about how Blurb is no longer offering BookSmart in their program offering. And I recommend testing out the upload process within BookSmart at the beginning before investing time in a photo book that can no longer be uploaded for printing.
blyrb But all is not lost! Since you are importing from an already completed and uploaded photo book created in BookSmart, you should already have an account. Keep in mind, these are books that have already been uploaded from BookSmart to your online Blurb dashboard for print. Check your email associated with your Blurb account to find out when the conversion is ready. The first photo book I tried, it did not work. And when I downloaded it, the file was a text file, not a BookWright file.
If this happens to you and you really need this particular book, I recommend you contact Blurb customer support.
Is there any way to export photos from Booksmart’s library? | Blurb Books Community | Flickr
In my example, I selected another photo book with my favorite layouts to convert. The second book project downloaded perfectly. In this email, there is the appropriate book name and when I clicked the link, a BookWright file downloaded.
Once the file has fully downloaded, all you have to do is double click and it will open within BookWright. This warning lets you know that there might be slight adjustments to the layouts based on updated photo book sizes.
This could be a very minimal read: My guess is that it may affect the centering of layouts but is most likely not anything you need to worry about.
To be safe, I recommend flipping through the layouts before you save or print just to make sure. All of the photos that were included in BookSmart project automatically carry over expoft the BookWright program. This is great if you had a few adjustments to make and wanted to finish a book in BookWright. One thing that did not carry over was the text style. The font switches to a standard font within BookWright.
This is an easy adjustment…. In this example, I simply changed the title in the text box and updated the font style to something I wanted.
Going from BookSmart to BookWright
To accomplish this, simply delete the photos from the boxes to create a blank layout. Finally, select if you want to save the left page, right page or the entire layout as a spread.
After you have saved your layouts, delete the pages you no longer need and delete the photos from from the Photos tab. Now you are ready to start your next book project, in BookWright, with your favorite layouts at the ready!
