When we refer to a page, we are talking about either the left or right side of a page spread. A page spread refers to two side by side pages.
AdoramaPix photo books are unlike most other photo books on the market because they have no gutters between pages. In other words, every page spread is a single unbroken sheet of photo paper with only a faint seam where it has been folded. This provides you with some powerful advantages over our competitors’ offerings.
- You can easily drag and drop photos or other content from page to page, or place it across both.
- Content can flow seamlessly across both pages without a visual 'gap' in the middle.
- You don’t have to worry about lining up objects on adjoining pages.
- None of your photos or content is lost or hidden within a gutter between your pages.
- You can easily move page pairs around within your book.
To make the most of these advantages, PixBuilder works with spreads rather than individual pages. In other words, we treat a pair of pages as a single double-wide page. In addition to the advantages mentioned above, there is one disadvantage.
- You cannot copy or move a single page at a time.
In other words, if you click on a page, select copy and then go to another page and click paste, the entire spread will be copied, even if you had clicked only on one side of the book. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you want to create a new page spread from the left side of one spread and the right side of another, your only recourse (at this time) is to copy one of the two spreads and manually copy the elements from the missing side.
When you copy an object from one spread to another, it will automatically appear at the exact same coordinates on the new spread. I.e. if you copy a 4x6 photo positioned coordinate x:100, y:100 on the left hand side of the spread and rotated to 15 degrees and paste it to another spread, it will appear at the same size, in the same place, on the same side of the page and at the same rotation angle as it was on the page from which you copied it.
The only aspect of PixBuilder that allows you to influence one half of a spread at a time is the backgrounds. If you drag and drop a background to a page, it will be applied only to that page rather than both pages in the spread. This is deliberate so as to provide you with the flexibility of choosing different backgrounds for adjoining pages.
