Looks like we’ve to do the school magazine again, but not exactly the whole thing. See, we used the A4 size margins on Publisher. Boon Hwa will be printing our magazine with the size of 10.25″ by 7.25″ which is smaller than A4 size. So we’ll have to resize everything. And it’s just so sensitive! Move one thing, the other gets affected and the photos might turn out blur when printed (resize too much). If that’s the case then, we’ll have to change the photos too! Insert, resize, put them in black and white. Oh yeah, we’ll have to set all the photo resolutions to 150 for black and white and 600 for colour. I think that’s correct, ’cause I lost the paper I wrote down those stuff. Which really helps me in my craziness now.

Driving me crazy. Knowing that there’s four more weeks to school holidays, one week full of camp (9-12 ESPlosion, 14-18 RYLA). And books? Haven’t laid a finger on them!

Just don’t want to do it again. I mean, it felt so good when we handed in the magazine, a burden lifted off. Now we start wondering: How come Jeanette’s year they had the right size? How come we don’t know about the right size one leh? Teacher also dunno one..

    Hi Mei. A’macam lah? Can you use another programme to do the resizing? Something that will resize everything in accordance. I’ve a copy of Adobe’s InDesign (or you could download the trial version). I think that’s heaps better. My design-friend has some other programme that uses vectors (gridlines and stuff) so that you don’t have to readjust everything. I’ll find out from her. You’re so NOT gonna redo everyting THAT way! There are programmes out there–go ask school to get PROPER software to work on the mag lah!
