    Exporting Music Digital Booklet for iTunes Upload

    AllNamesGone Level 1

      I'm a bit new to InDesign, and having difficulties exporting a finished booklet for an album my company is releasing on iTunes.


      iTunes has certain minimum requirements, most of which are easy to accommodate. One of them, however, is proving to be tricky for me. They say the pages must all be in landscape orientation, and must be sized at 11 inches x 8.264 inches.


      Imagine the size of a CD booklet in your hand (about 4.25" x 4.25"), and then imagine the size when you have the booklet open (about 8.5" x 4.25"). This is the same size the booklet is in InDesign currently. I need to figure out how to export the booklet in its current size to those exact PDF dimensions of 11" x 8.264", and if possible, to be able to choose the color of the extra canvas space that is created as a result. I'd likely choose white, or a neutral gray.


      Can this be done in InDesign? I haven't been able to find anything online to help, and after waiting over two hours for Adobe customer service to call me back, it was quickly apparent that the guy calling from India who couldn't speak clear English could not understand what I was asking, and I doubt he knew the answer anyway. I don't know, because I had to finally hang up.
