Blurb Booksmart Review
Blurb.com has a passion for books, and with an online community that share that passion you are guaranteed quality. Holding a finished Blurb photobook in your hands which shows off all your memories is a wonderful feeling, which is why the software developers of Blurb have taken away all the technical difficulties of creating a book online and made it into a simple and easy step by step process.
Blurb’s Booksmart software comprises a set of tools to create a photobook in a number of formats and sizes. From as little as an 18cm square book to a 32×28 landscape book, you will be spoilt for choice in deciding which suits your taste and requirements. The on line version of Booksmart is called Bookify.
The User Guide
The user guide is so simple that a basic photobook can be created in minutes by simply uploading the photos and letting the software automatically order the photos for you, a great plus point for beginners who don’t have the time or patient to work on a photobook for days.
And it’s not just photobooks you can create, Booksmart can create notebooks, planners, yearbooks, you can even convert a blog into a book format.
Photo Handling and Uploading
Loading up the photos cannot be easier. There is of course the standard upload from your computer, but other options to upload from facebook, twitter, flickr etc cuts out the middle step of first uploading to your computer which saves time and effort. If you are creating a photobook where you need people to contribute, for instance a stag do, then you can actually invite contributors to add their snaps directly into Booksmart, saving you the hassle of receiving multiple emails with attachments.
For the slightly more adventurous, the software incorporates a photo editor allowing you to crop, resize, zoom and rotate images to ensure they fit perfectly. You can also adjust the fonts, style and colours to exactly how you want.
Purchasing Your Photobook
Once you are done with your book it’s a simple matter to log into your Blurb account from the Booksmart application and upload it to the servers. This can take up to 10 minutes for a 40 page book so be patient as this is done. Once the book is uploaded successfully you must purchase at least one copy or the book will be removed in 15 days. Of course you still have the Booksmart version safe and sound if you need to upload again later.

Pricing and Blurb Promo Code Offers
The photobooks on Blurb sell for as little as $12.99 up to $50.99 which is competitive when we compared them to other services. As listed in the opening of this article Blurb issue regular promotions to tempt people to try their service. Personally I don’t think it requires coupon codes to do this as Blurb has already established itself as the market leader in photobook production. However, everyone is happy to get some discount so ensure you do take up any opportunity and grab some Blurb coupons from this page to reduce your purchase price.
Blurb Return Policy And Cancellation
Blurb offer a 100% money back guarantee on all their photobooks. It must be made absolutely clear though that this applies directly to damage in transit or a manufacturing defect. Blurb stress that they do not proof read any photobooks so any text that is mis-spelt is purely down to the customer. There is a preview button on the BookSmart software so there really is no excuse for mistakes.
Cancelling a photobook can be done within 1 hour of making your order. After that the processing cannot be stopped and you are commited.
