1Should I use the Crop and Save photo editor or the Advanced Editor?
Crop and Save is the easiest option – you simply drag out the crop-lines and hit the Crop and Save tab.
The Advanced Editor also lets you crop your photo then gives you access to a whole range of intuitive photo-editing tools.
2Can we use professional photographs in our books?
Our Partners (theme parks, zoos, adventures etc) are all aware that an Utter Fiction book is a sensational vehicle to show how much you personally enjoyed their facility. They’re also aware that professional photos purchased on-site can give your book a terrific boost as they’re often the shots people find most spectacular. Whatever photographs you choose to use is up to you – as long as you have permission to use that image.
3Can I add more text to a page?
By filling out the Data Sheet, your details will be strategically inserted into the book’s text. You can tweak the text on any page wherever you see a text-icon. If you include additional text we suggest you pay particular attention to your print preview as it may affect the appearance of a page.
4Why is there sometimes a delay when I load or edit an image?
Your computer, your browser and our software have an amazing job to do in personalising your chosen book. If your internet connection is a little slow you’ll undoubtedly experience delays. Just be patient and everything will do what it is supposed to do.
5I may have ignored the suggestion to upgrade my browser when I started editing. Can I still make my book anyway?
Hmmmm, probably not! Remember, it’s free to upgrade your browser and will help prevent blood-pressure issues and spontaneous bouts of swearing.
6Why is A4 hard-cover the default size for Utter Fiction books?
Because they looks so good! There's every chance that your Utter Fiction book was designed by an internationally regarded Graphic Designer, composed by talented authors, printed and bound by expert artisans and still be filled with personal photographs of the people you love most...it deserves to be preserved in a large format so you can show the world! We have also made smaller and cheaper versions of Utter Fiction books available.
