How to make a booklet
Step 1: Who is your audience?
Alternatively, you may be creating a corporate newsletter-style booklet with a lot of text in multiple columns and with only a few images. Lucidpress has a wide variety of newsletter and brochure templates that feature multiple columns and image placeholders for your company’s logo and branding elements.
A third example is a recipe book. In this case, you’ll probably want to ensure all the pages have a consistent layout, and you’ll want to make sure that the book can be laid flat on a kitchen counter... which brings us to binding.
Step 2: Nail down your binding
Step 3: Source images
Step 4: Create an outline
Step 5: Design your pages
In the interface, in the left pane, simply drag & drop the element (e.g. text, shape, video, image or table) you wish to add to your layout—plop!—into your design. Now this is when the fun starts.
In the right pane are all the attributes of the element you’re working on. The Shape tab gives you options to change these attributes. For instance, if you’re working on an image, you can change the borders, fill color, shadows & opacity. The Layout tab helps you to position your image precisely and lock features of the image you don’t want anyone else to change.
Like other graphic design software—Microsoft Word and Acrobat InDesign, for example—Lucidpress follows the same UI standards for where editing features are located. For instance, right-click on an element and select a function from the context menu, like changing the layout sequence of elements. To align elements exactly, select multiple shapes, right-click and choose an alignment, such as left-aligned or centered.
Lucidpress is ideal for small businesses as it provides powerful collaboration features. For instance, you can right-click on an element and select Add Comment. In the dialog box, type @ and then select the user or users you wish to discuss your project with.
