I know a number of you have used Blurb for wedding albums and things, so I hope you can help!
I’m starting to put together my boudoir album in Blurb. I have a number of panorama spreads (long pictures that spread across 2 pages) that I’d like to use, but after reading a number of posts on the Blurb help forums, it seems like I can expect the middle 1/8-1/4" of the photo to get lost in the gutter when the book is bound. Have any of you found this to be the case? Does it look terrible? I’m just imagining getting this book back, and my stomach has completely disappeared from the picture. =(
What do you think? Any way to avoid this issue? Thanks in advance!

i know this is old but for those of you who are wondering, the trick is to extend each of the pictures a bit longer than if you matched them up exactly on the layout mode. This will seem uneven in the preview, but will seem fine when printed. The eye naturally conects the images across the spread, in the case that some of the extra extension shows on a printed page…
