Preparing for photobook print.

Hi Damien,

I've been asked to do a photobook (something like online Snapfish).. Just like when preparing for a specific size of print, do I have to to edit  with a particular crop - (width, height and resolution) for creating a photobook file?

Of course you don't crop during editing (with photobooks OR regular prints).  Edit the whole photo at its full size as usual, then only resize and sharpen when you're ready for the book.

Unlike preparing for normal print, selecting the document size (width, height and resolution), after normal editing what size do I resize too, as the image templates are all different sizes in the photobook software.. And as for sharpening - what radius do I use? Do I use the "cheat method"  (two-thrids of the long edge of the album?? - depending on what album size I choose).. Or do I just edit and sharpen the image in its full size?  Leave my PSA at 300% (my normal amount).. ???
