With sofobomo done and dusted for 2009, I thought I’d publish the final PDF (with typos corrected) on Issuu and embed it here… however, for some reason unknown to me or the FAQs on Issuu, the Scribus generated PDF… no matter what configuration I used to export to PDF.

To get around this little Issuu issue, I downloaded PrimoPDF and printed the book from Acrobat Reader to a new PDF and uploaded that to Issuu… and though not great quality, it’ll do until I find a better way to upload Scribus generated PDFs to Issuu.

Madrid – A Melbournian’s Perspective

Faceoff - Matador v Bull

Tonight I began the process of constructing my sofobomo book using Scribus.

Some time ago, I changed my sofobomo profile to reflect my new topic, Madrid (though I didn’t change the image on the profile… still shows Melbourne i.e. the topic I originally intended for sofobomo).

In my week and a half in Madrid, I managed to capture close to 1,400 images, equating to almost 12GB of photos. I’ve spent some time since my return sorting through them all and have about 400 I’d like to include in a book of my travels, but even that is a bit too many for this exercise, unless I opt for 4 volumes.

So, I’m now going to cull it down to about 80 images and have until the 23rd of this month to put them into the book, whose layout I designed tonight. I’m very happy with how things are looking and coming along… only unhappy that I’ll have to cull so many images to get the PDF down to a manageable, i.e. downloadable, size.
