Printies for Pages of Books??

I don't know where you could get pages of books, maybe someone reading this does know and will share. It's hard to reduce and keep it readable, you have to start small to begin with. I do know something though, my son told me about vector images, they can be re-sized up and down without changing them. I don't know how to make a vector image though. Someone with PhotoShop would probably know. I will check with my son and let you know. TTYL Kris

  1. I choose books in pages of "scale" on the web, I save on my PC and then decreases with Microsoft Word, but it is a long and hard work .... when I can well is a great satisfaction.
    But I see around the blogosphere already reduced books and no one reveals her secret! : ((
    thanks a lot for your any help!

  2. Source for printable book pages:

    When choosing pages to reduce, keep in mind that the pages that reduce the best are the ones that have less text. When reduced, you will not notice large, dark areas of ink that once were the paragraphs of text.

    Vector graphics are created and edited in a vector software program such as Adobe Illustrator or Freehand. They are resolution independent, meaning that they can be scaled up or down without losing quality. Photographic images are not vector. Vector images are typically logos or illustrations with areas of flat (not gradient) colors. Also, the graphics that you find on most websites are not vector (jpg, png, gif).

    When printing small items, 2 things determine the overall quality of the printed item: the resolution of the image you are printing and the quality of your printer and paper.

    I know that was a long-winded answer, but I hope it helps. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. :)

  5. Maria, that's a great idea about creating a table in Word!

  6. Thank you Carol and thank you Kris for all this information. If you use the table in word, it's important that you prepare in the same file also the cover. This is for the correct page size. Usually I print all together in the same page(cover + pages).

  7. PS. I print all together just to see if the size is right. Obviously for the cover I use a different paper ;o)
