Hey all, Well if you can't tell. I have been swamped here with site stuff.
So I am nearly finished with the book. I just need to add in BIO's.

Basically I will include in post 2 what I want them to look like.
If you are a participant of the contest. Look over your work make sure that their are not any typo's or errors in the layout.

Bio info will be post 2 that I will put up this evening.

OK, I am going to make this page as the table of contents. Basically - It still needs some work, I have ordered the book - the top 7 are placed first, and than after that the rest are placed alphabetical.

Tony,
the book looks awesome and i can't wait to order a few copies.
i noticed that all my pages or at least the written ones are cut on the right side. i also prefer that my name will be on the first page.

thank you so much for all the hard work.

Assaf

Tony,

it appears as if all pages have margins on the right side for binding which can't be correct.

In my entry, I designed the pages to be spreads, i.e., pages #1, 3, and 5 should appear to the left facing, on the right side of the spread, pages #2, 4, and 6, respectively.

Also, I have the same request as Assaf about the name. I can send you a new page #1-2 spread with the name in the right place in the right font if you like.

I'm looking forward to the book.

Cheers, Jens.

Ok a few notes about the PDF. It doesn't offer many abilities to "Print out of blurb", they do a lot of protection. So things are a bit off, on the preview. So it isn't a very good preview at all.
It will have everyone's 1, 3,5 on the left side.
I will change your name Affafx.
Jens' I didn't get your picture yet, but I can put it correct if you give me /tell me what font it is.

In general - On the Bio - I will try to add in manually the City, (State), Country of your entry, as well as if you have a home page, and a "Mug Shot".

The final page size is 2884 x 2471, so it is slightly different than what I originally gave. Sorry :( So if you guys want it different I can change the pages out.

As a final note- I probably will not be around much for a couple of days - The baby should be here tomorrow.

Good News I finally received the rough draft of the Blurb book. Which between - E-420, pancake, and now the 14-35mm (as well as a new baby and other items) So I have to make a couple changes I am missing a couple pictures still, and will try to email those people and fix the couple of layout issues that we had.
So I hope by the middle of next week to make that info public to order. It is very very nice.

The book will be made available from blurb. You can't order it till its ready. So I still have to fix about 12 or so typos I found ad your photo, etc. So maybe by the end of the week.

Will our enteries be in this book, even if we didn't place. Can I see the page of my entry by any chance?
Thanks

Sorry to be a pain tony but could my photo be changed to

http://tn3-1.deviantart.com/fs13/300W/i/2007/067/d/1/InfraRed_Self_Portrait_by_StuMac1985.jpg

higher res copy here: http://fc02.deviantart.com/fs13/f/2007/067/f/4/InfraRed_Self_Portrait_by_StuMac1985.jpg

also, is it possible to list an email address in place of a website as I have not sorted my site yet

EDIT: Page 39 of the pdf (page 2 of my entry) says 'to the right' where it should say 'to the left'

Still waiting for a couple of entries, and working out all the typos, I know its taking to long, but moving the contest back really screwed up my whole schedule for the site this year, so it is getting weaved into everything else.

I am waiting for Rally's picture, and version 2 of the book had a bunch more errors. So I am going to have to fix those. Next week I am gone on a Work trip. So I won't spend any time on the book.
The updating in Blurb software is a bit tedious. In fact I would call for this project simply rotten. I have to go to the right page in PS, than save out a jpeg. and than import it into book smart.... All in all with the 100+ pages, very slow to update. Next time I will simply go back to inDesign and do it that way.
