Two Applications that do the Same Thing? According to Blurb , "Because BookWright is brand new, we have new technology available to us to make the app run smoother and faster, refresh the overall look and feel, and to incorporate new features.
Read on for details. Lessons Learnt from Using BookWright I have previously used BookSmart to create several photobooks - you can read about my experiences here. I used BookWright to create a photobook with photos from a mission-related trip to West Timor in September last year, as an opportunity to try out BookWright, and compare it to BookSmart. You can only save custom page layouts as a new layout.
BookSmart allows you to over-write previously created page layouts. BookSmart allows you to delete previously created page layouts. BookSmart allows you to switch between a single-page view and a two-page spread. BookSmart allows you to see the last page, add content to both sides of it, and displays the last page when previewing your book. Any page background colour also applies to this last page.
I recently created a book in BookWright, and set the page background to black. However, my book was printed and delivered with a last page logo page that was white, which completely spoiled the book for me.
This is non-intuitive, and not obvious. However, despite Blurb indicating the issue was my fault, they were good enough to provide a new discount coupon so I could get the book re-printed with the correct colour logo page the coupon covered the printing costs, but not the shipping costs. The last page is referred to as the "logo page" by Blurb, and you can optionally pay extra to remove the logo from this page. This is annoying, because it means you need to wait for the download to complete, and the installation of the update to complete before you can use BookWright.
Not everyone has a fast internet connection, and not everyone has an unmetered internet connection. I do not believe BookWright is a suitable replacement for BookSmart yet - Blurb will need to add a lot more functionality and many more features before it will be able to replace BookSmart. I will continue to use BookSmart while I can, as I prefer the functionality and the user experience that it provides. Are you going to be creating your own photo books through Blurb?
Check my Blurb discount coupons for a discount code to save some money when ordering a book through Blurb. Versions Most of these observations were based on my experiences creating a photo book using BookWright version 1.
At the time of writing, the latest version is now 1. All issues mentioned above still exist in BookWright version 1. The version of BookSmart I am currently using is version 3.

Blurb BookSmart Review Blurb BookSmart is a free application with which you can make an entire book manually or using the assistant tool. It is composed of four simple steps: select the size of the book, a template design, the title, and the pictures that you wish to include. Once this is done, all you have to do is drag and drop the photos onto the screen where the program indicates. The templates included with Blurb BookSmart are very attractive: there are some for your pet, your baby, a cookbook, photo album, etc. Of course, Blurb BookSmart is the ideal tool for making books with a large amount of photographic content. The ending format can only be viewed by this program; however, if you have a PDF printer configured on your computer, you can export the book to this format.
