  2. Hi. I downloaded the ‘Ever Greens’ readybook which comes up when I did a search for Debossed + Large Square. However, when I opened it in Photobook Designer, it shows as Imagewrap. How can I changed it to Debossed since my voucher is for Debossed and not Imagewrap.

    • Hi Tami,

      After you open the Readybook go to the navigation bar and click on “Change Product” (which is the 7th icon on the navigation bar) and select “Large Square Debossed Hardcover”. Once you have changed your product, you will be able to see that the product type on the top screen has changed to “11×11 Large Square Debossed Hardcover”. Please note that the first page marked as “Front” is the window image for your Photobook. You can replace the existing image with your image of choice.

      Happy bookmaking!

  3. I am looking to use a readybook. Can I choose different pages within the readybook to meet the needs of type of photos or am I bound to the set pages as they are? For example, is there flexability to have 5 of one type of page in the readybook, because I perfer the particular template of that page?

    • Hi Carmen!
      Some Readybook templates allow changes to be made to them and some do not. However, you should also be able to repeat certain templates found within the Readybook that suits your needs the best.
      Hope that helps!

  4. hi. i downloaded the ‘early reader’ readybook since it was under the imagewrap & softcover category. however, when i tried using it, it only allows me to make the imagewrap type. i have bought a voucher for a softcover during your easter sale and i was hoping i could use it on this readybook.

    • Hi Joy! At the time of downloading the Readybook, you are given the option (via a drop down menu) to choose the Medium Softcover version where it says Book Type. You can find that option at this link:

      If you would like to create the Softcover book, please go back to the link provided and choose the Medium Softcover option and redownload the Readybook.

      Hope that helps!

  5. Hi, i couldn’t change the readybook product? from a large landscape to a softcover photobook.

    • Hi Rebecca and lilly, unfortunately, Readybooks are pre-designed templates, specifically for the size stated in the website. Their sizes are not flexible. Hope this helps.
