Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

After the initial release of my first InDesign Template, I kept on thinking of ways to improve and enhance it. Which has lead to a complete redesign from the ground up.

What's in the Box?

Everything you need to help get you started with layout for your book. All files are organised into an InDesign Book with individual chapter documents set up for easy management. I’ve also included “torn paper” banner-like graphics, wax seal and stains that you can use to make your pages pop.

You can also download a full PDF sample of what the template looks like if generated right out of the box here (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mnpAt3Mw3jQmaOjSNJppV3jJWGBwEw9I).

Hi - I just purchased the template believing it contained *.IDML files (compatible with publishing software outside InDesign) and not *.INDD files. I use Affinity Publisher, which cannot make use of *.INDD files.

Can you please consider saving this template in the more flexible *.IDML format? If you are not able to do that, I understand, I will just have to request a refund on the purchase. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Sincerely, John

Before I make the purchase I just wanted to check what the differences were between this and your previous version?

This version is a lot better with graphics you can use in your own projects.

Hi
Thanks.
Yes I do do custom templates, but my main focus is layout so would need to collaborate with your artist(s) if you have something specific in mind. My art skills are limited but growing, lol.
Thanks, that's much appreciated.

Hi Maxence

I got a notification about clipping masks via email, but don't see the message here. You'll need to edit the Photoshop "Chapter Mask.psd" file I provided. Inside that file you will see a Smart Object layer called "Artwork" double click on it to open it like a normal file, then you can copy/paste or move your artwork to it. Save everything and export if needed. Then import it into InDesign. Or you could create the mask in InDesign, here's a tut https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpxkO-I3WV4&feature=emb_logo

Only the images are hosted on an old WP server, but that shouldn't stop you from seeing them or downloading the sample PDF. Copy/paste this link https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mnpAt3Mw3jQmaOjSNJppV3jJWGBwEw9I

Hi - I bought this - outstanding layout, I hope to learn quite a bit from using it. I have a question about the black pages with the torn edges - are those meant to be black, with the text against them, or is there some tricky wizardry where you use an opacity setting or something to blend in an image where the black is? Just curious. Thanks!

Hi Joel. Thank you for your purchase. No, it's no design trickery other than being a placeholder for your own artwork. If you look in the Resources>Artwork folder you'll see all the images you can replace with your own. I've also included a Photoshop file that will allow you to create clipping masks so your artwork can blend into the page. I'm really glad you like it and hope you benefit from it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

I will see if I can find a good photoshop tutorial on clipping masks. I couldn't quite figure out how to get my own artwork image into the right part of the layer.

It's very easy. I've setup the Artwork layer as a Smart Object, so just double click on the display icon to open it. Paste your art, move and resize if needed; save and close the layer. You should now see the artwork Masked out over the transparent background. Save as a PNG file and Place in InDesign. If you're going to use PoD, resave the PSD file in CMYK format as per DTRPGs standard and Place in InDesign (you may need to unlock the artwork frame then lock it again so they don't move).

Thanks much, working with the Chapter Mask.psd that way made it really easy to create custom artwork and export to whichever png I needed, i.e. 02 - Introduction.png - and then it updated in InDesign. I've learned quite a bit playing around with your template! Hope you make more!

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
