Normal workflow would be-
Select an image on the Filmstrip below the book layout and press [D]
Or click on the image in the Book pages layout and press [D]
If this is not working for you (and you have opening the incorrect image) then maybe a Preferences reset or a deletion of the Previews folder, may correct.
Have you created a "Saved Book"? from the tab above the book layout. (not a standard collection)
Do you always work from the 'saved book' in the Collections panel?
Can you open the 'Saved Book' collection from library grid view and select and develop an image from there?
i have put together a book and then edited images using the develop module. I uploaded the book to Blurb but none of the edits took effect during gate printing process, i.e. the original, unedited photo was printed.
I thought the edits would take and the finish product would be what I see on the monitor. That was not the case.
I printed the book into a pdf. The edits did get included.
what is going on here? what am i doing wrong?
Thanks for your quick response.
yes, uploaded clicking on block “send book to blurb”
yes, I did see the edited versions on the layout in the book module
I cannot explain, or even imagine, why your photos went to the book as 'original'.
They should export to Blurb the same as you see on screen and in the PDF.
Can you show us some screen-clips to compare a photo in the Book module and as it printed in PDF and book?
My only thought is that your monitor screen needs calibrating, but that would be only a 'color' problem.
Did you try to apply a profile to the photos?
What other editing adjustments did not show in the book? Can you give some more detail?
