Big PDF files can be difficult to work with, especially online: the upload, download and page loading can take a long time. It can be annoying for you and for your PDF viewers, so you should do something about that. The best idea is to make a web-optimized PDF right when you export the file from InDesign or other tool that you might be using. However, if you didn’t make the PDF yourself, you can still do something about the file size: compress it using Adobe Acrobat Pro or an online tool (you have plenty of options, some listed here) Read the rest of this entry »

Theater plays, movies, opera shows, books, paintings, e-books, flipbooks and so on. There are a lot of relatives in this big storytelling family, but did it ever cross your mind that flipbooks are the predecessors of movies?

The purpose of any fashion lookbook is to show off a model, a clothing line or a style, through a collection of photos. A model’s lookbook will act as a portfolio, while brands will use their lookbooks to promote a seasonal collection or a clothing line, and to give styling ideas. Some brands send them to customers as free mail order catalogs, while others simply host them online and as digital lookbooks. But even if we’re talking about different roles and uses, there are some design principles that can be generally applied to all. Read the rest of this entry »

editor_redesign_blogpost

We’re very excited today, because it’s the day we release the new editor. It’s a time-saver, and we think you’ll love it.

We built it especially for users who work with PDFs (which is 97% of you), and it only works for PDF editing.  Most of you use the editor just to add links, rather than to create from scratch, so it will work just fine for you. You can access the editor from My FlipbooksTry new editor

Important:

  • The new editor is a stripped-down version of the former (still in beta). We’ll be adding more features soon.
  • The old editor is the default for everyone, because it is packed with layouts and features for content creation. But don’t worry, that will be redesigned as well, soon.
  • If you edit an existing flipbook, you will be directed to the old editor, for now.
