Can I create a spread (one image on two pages)?
Yes, you can. Here's how:
- Open the left page you want the spread to start on (number 2, 4, 6 etc)
- Upload a horizontal image, drag it onto the page and stretch it so that half the image is covering the magazine page (stretching is done by clicking and holding the blue squares in the image corners and 'pulling' them until the desired size has been reached)
- Once you've positioned the left side of the image over the entire page (make sure there is no white space left around the image) make a note of where the image is cut off at the right side (the outer dotted line). You can write down the values of the y-axis, height and width.
- Save the page, and then close it and open the magazine page next to it (number 3, 5, 7 etc)
- Place the image onto the page and enter the height and width you just wrote down so that the images are exactly the same size.
- Position the right side of the image over the entire page and make sure the 'cutting line' (outer dotted line) lines up with the same spot on the other page. That way they align nicely.
Make sure the two pages align correctly by checking the pages with the 'Browse through magazine' button (in the magazine page overview).
Requirements for a Spread:
- A high quality image, that retains it's quality when stretched (minimum of 3, but preferably 4 stars).
- A horizontal image. Vertical images can be used as well, but most of the page will be lost due to de resizing.
- Make sure you don't position anything important (like someone's nose!) near the 'cutting line' line.
- Another way to do this is to use an editing program to split an image up beforehand and then uploading each of these 'image halves' seperately.
- Pre-made spread images are available in the editing room as well!
