I am ordering an album through Mypublisher-the deluxe hardcover book which is about 11 x 15. If anyone has ordered this size, I would appreciate your help with the following questions. I am doing the entire layout in photoshop:
I have several pictures that will spread across two pages. So, essentially 2 full bleed pages for one picture. So that would mean my image would have dimensions of 11 x 30. It would seem that these dimensions would stretch and distort the image. How do I resize for such dimensions w/o distortion?
Also, this is my first time creating collages/ montages where several smaller images are inserted into a larger image that forms the background. With such collages how do I apply sharpening? Should I individually sharpen each image and then put them together or should I put the collage together first and apply sharpen to the entire collage?
When resizing the smaller images should I first resize them individually with the 'Image size' menu option, or should I use 'Free transform' as a smart object after 'Placing' into the larger image?
All help appreciated.
