More flexibility in Bookify
Hi. I've just used your service and likely to do so in the future. I use it more for photo albums rather than written books and I found the Bookify a bit limiting in terms of what you can get out of the layouts. I was wondering if there could be a way of dragging and dropping the photos within the page in the position that one likes rather than on a preset one and maybe add crop function?

Martina: I have used Blurb to do a good number of photobooks. I use their Bookwright software.
I don't bother with their page formats. I just draw a photo box where I want, the size I want. Then I fine tune the size and location. While there is no cropping tool, changing the size/shape of the box and the "zoom" of the image in the box does the same thing as a crop.
If I want text to describe something about the picture, then I just draw a text box and adjust to fit.
There is a learning curve as with all software, but I have no issue with BLURB in the respects you mention.
I found it very restrictive, too. I'd much prefer more free form opportunities.
