Hi Princesskitty!

Glad you figured out the problem and I hope your next book turns out better.  But I think instead of using the term "text elements" you should use graphic element or something.  You can add text in either InDesign or Photoshop and it turns out great. 

You can check out how my Blurb book turned out on my blog:

here’s the particular post:

I’m working on making some templates that people can download and use if they want to make their own pages and I plan to have a full review shortly.  I’ll probably post my review on here for people who are interested.

Yup, I put in all the text in Photoshop and simply saved it as a high resoultion jpeg.  I was a little worried about it but it turned out really great.

If you’re working in a photoshop – non illustrater – just regular and you save your items at 300 dpi (using elements that are also that size) it should work find, also I find that setting my font from sharp to smooth helped as well. I didn’t have any issues prining with them or any other places this holiday season.

I wonder why that is? I’d show you my book but I gave it away for xmas to my aunt…

None the less they should give a heads up to this when you are uploading your own pages….you know? Don’t you think that would be better customer service.
