    Default Sowefare for book publishing preparation

    Not sure is the right sub-forum but will ask the question here anyway.

    Anyone can shed some light on software to use for publishing a book of photos with words like a coffeetable book? I have read that INDesign being the recommended sw to use for preparing a book for publishing but wonder if those free sw by overseas online printing co such as blurb and FotoInsight can do a good job (but not using these printers to print)?

    Anyone with any experience to share will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I would generally think that you can't do that as the free sw used by the online printers are only for their own use. Whatever books you create and save under their software cannot be opened or read by other printers.

    just as long as you can generate a hi res for printing pdf file, any software will do.
