If you're looking to use a single photo across two pages in BookSmart, you've come to the right place!
Insert a new two-page spread in BookSmart
Choose a place in your book where you want to insert a two-page photo spread. Select Insert > Two-page Photo Spread
Choose the number of two-page spreads to add. "1" will add a single two-page spread.
A full bleed photo spread layout will be automatically inserted. In the pages below, the image container goes to the edges on both pages, past the pink shaded area and red dotted trim line.
Drag and drop an image to the new two-page spread. An image used in this layout can be moved around within the two-page layout so that it spans the two pages automatically.
These two pages will be locked together, which means that they won't be separated if you move pages around in your book, or if you drag and drop the two-page spread somewhere else in the book.
Tips to remember:
- Don't place important content in the center, or gutter, of the book because it will probably be lost in trimming and binding.
- If you have horizon lines or other lines/elements crossing the page, the sides may not match up perfectly in the printed, trimmed and bound book--you may see up to 1/16 inch (1.6mm) variation. See our general article on making two page spreads.
