Looks pretty good. Some of the pages that have many small pics are difficult to make out at this size and look pretty busy, but I'm sure they look better full size. What are you going to do with this book when you're done? If you're going to sell it, you may need to change the title, I saw a Jaguar leaper in there! Detroit never made one of those :)

Some of the pages that have many small pics are difficult to make out at this size and look pretty busy, but I'm sure they look better full size.

Here's a shot of the "Detail" page.

you may need to change the title, I saw a Jaguar leaper in there!

I even included a shot of an Anglia, built by Ford in the UK! But it's probably more Detroit Iron than what Marie might take to the market? ;) "Mighty Anglia!" '48 Anglia 540

ALL of your shots are simply stunning

:D 1st pro secret: never show your really crappy shots to anyone? I get my share.
The cars do all the work. Just find the right light, & they'll make anyone look good.

I think I've reached a final layout. Considering that I just changed it (again) a few minutes ago, that statement may only be operable for the next few hours! :D

The pic is 900px wide, so just a link to it:

Frank,

It looks great, and I think it's a really good idea for a book.

Well done!!

Greg

Got it & it looks GREAT except for one small color balance issue & a typo. I showed it to 4 people & already have 3 orders for it! There's a link to the final layout in post #15.

:D Most of these guys think the right price for a pic is "free"?
I'm still tweaking the 3rd proof copy. When can we expect to see a book from you, Marie?

Got me? But in PS, you should be able to do the first one in 30 min, & less after that. Clean up of the windows takes longer. ;)

:lol:

that aside .........
I lost the plot
well not the plot. I have the plot :lol:
its the time and energy and getting it down
more difficult then it seems when in the head
(for the moment)
(children's book)

you'll like this..the TV station over here want a picture which they had shown on their weather forecast news a while ago...to be included in a book they decided and hope to publish before Christmas. they got in touch asking me for permission
at the time the photo was shown on TV there was no mention of a book, so it was a surprise
