some important design specifications to get you started on your own

old school? design from scratch? already like a piece of software? no worries

If you like to kick it old-school and design your album spreads in Adobe Photoshop, InDesign or another piece of software, here are the settings you need to know about:
  • Spreads = 2x album width x album height in inches (e.g. a 10x10 album has a 20x10 spread)
  • Trim is 1/8 inch (3mm) 
  • Safety Zone is 1/2 inch (13mm) - do not place image edges, heads, text etc into this area, only image ares that are okay for trimming
  • 300 dpi
  • Output in JPG, sRGB
  • Albums always start and end with a full spread
  • 5 spreads min, 30 spreads max
  • You aways design your cover inside lifethreads studio
