“liveBooks puts the photograph first and the streamlined design makes it easy to navigate... The resulting website exceeds my expectations and the experience of working with their helpful staff has made it even more rewarding.” - Michael Jang, Photographer, SF (http://michaeljang.com)

We can facilitate or perform as much or as little of the design work as you like. We know that our clients are visual people and many like to take a hands-on approach to the design process. If this is the case for you, we will serve as a guide and a facilitator in the process. If this is not the case, we can do the design work for you. LiveBooks will build your new site to your specifications. In order to accomplish this we need to understand specifics of the aesthetic you are trying to accomplish. Generally, there are three approaches we can take to getting this done: 1) Review our list of example liveBooks sites (contact your sales representative for a current list of client examples) and choose a site or sites that we can work from as a starting point. We encourage all clients to review sample sites even if you have preexisting ideas, just to see the various ways that a liveBooks site can be deployed. 2) LiveBooks can emulate your existing website or other promotional materials. 3) Describe in a detailed email what you envision, or can create a visual guide for us in Photoshop® or similar software. Once we receive your basic preferences, we will build your site. Please send preferences to design@livebooks.com. During this time you can be preparing your images according to the image prep instructions in the Image Prep section of this document. As soon as we have installed your site, we will deliver the site to you on a temporary URL so that you can view and test the site and so that you can populate it with initial images. You will be using our editSuite software to import the images. A quick guide to using the editSuite software is included in the editSuite Quick Start Guide Manual section of this document. Once you are happy with the site and ready to go live you can follow the instructions in the Going Live section of this document to provide us the information that we need to make your liveBooks site live. It can take up to 72 hours for the site to propagate. If you have an existing site, the transition will be seamless as your existing site will remain available until your new liveBooks site replaces it.

Options in the design process To get started, please send your preferences on points below to design@livebooks.com: l Font (We can use any web friendly font. You may be asked to supply the font file if it is not a standard font in the public domain.) l Frame or no frame l Line style for frame (if used) l Color selections for background and inner frame l Placement of site title – top left or bottom left l Names of the menu items l Site name can be font treatment or a graphic l Logo can be incorporated liveBooks will need to gather information from you about each of the above options so that we can install your site. Once your site is installed and delivered, you will be able to upload content immediately. Specifically, your Home Page, Contact Page and Bio Page will be empty on delivery so that you can fill those pages with custom designed graphics that you upload using the editSuite*. If you would like, we can design a graphic to fill the pages for you. * The graphics used to fill these three pages needs to be a baseline. JPG (dimensions 920x562 pixels at 72dpi). This graphic can created using software such as Photoshop.

Summary Please, review the sample liveBooks sites and then compose design preferences in an email to us at design@livebooks.com including, at a minimum: 1) Site color 2) Font preference 3) Links to sites that you really like 4) Optional: Other information that you think will help us understand your design preference including sample documents (if any).

Image Prep Instructions Image Specs Here are the imaging rules to prepare the images for upload into liveBooks site: l All images must be 72dpi. l All images must be saved as Jpegs. l All images must be RGB, (not CMYK). l All images must be saved as baseline (“standard”) jpgs. (Not baseline optimized or progressive). This is the default way that Photoshop and Save For Web export Jpegs. If you accidentally upload an optimized Jpeg, the images that are in the presentation with it will not show up on the site. To fix, delete the image. l All jpegs must use “normal” names using: any letter cap or small from a to z .. A to Z or number 0 to 9, or, -, or _or . and that is all. You can not use other symbols in the file name, like !, or $, or *, etc. liveBooks websites have the ability to accept two different image sizes, which we refer to as single images or double images. Double images are like “double page spreads” and single images can be paired with another image to make a diptych. A “double” or full-page image is an image with a max size of 500 px on the vertical axis, and ranging from a minimum of 366 px to a maximum of 750 px on the horizontal axis. (Max Size: 750 x 500 px, Target K size 90 - 110k). A “single” image (which can be shown in a diptych or by itself), is an image with a max size of 500 px on the vertical axis, and 365 px on the horizontal axis.* (Max Size: 500 x 365 px, Target K size 45 – 60k). * If an image is 366 px horizontal or larger, then it is considered by the computer to be a double, full-page image.

Suggested Image Prep Process The following instructions give you an overview of how to prepare images for your liveBooks site using Photoshop software. 1) Open the image that you want to prepare for your liveBooks site in Photoshop software. 2) Go to Edit>Assign Profile, and select the sRGB color profile. This will give a more accurate color for the web.

r.2 :: lite :: v.5




Welcome Pack - Lite

3) You may want to increase the saturation a little bit as well as the sharpness (using the unsharp mask filter seems to work best) because when you save for the web you will lose a little punch to your picture, so increasing the saturation and sharpness helps. Be careful not to over-sharpen or over-saturate! Less is more. 4) Resize using the crop tool: For most images, you will only need to set the height (for example, to 500 px), leave the width blank and the resolution at 72dpi. For wider images, like panoramas, you will set only the width to 750 px and leave the height blank. 5) Complete resizing the crop by checking the box at the top. The image will become quite small. Use the zoom tool to enlarge the image to 100%. 6) Now you are ready to save your image to the web. Select Save for Web from the File menu. 7) When the Save for Web screen opens, choose the tab at top that says optimized. On the right, make sure the “Progressive”, “Optimized”, and “ICC Profile” boxes are not checked. What you see is how your image will look on the web. To see the difference, move the window to the side a bit so you can see the original image in Photoshop window behind the Save for Web window, so you can see the difference from the original to the Save for Web version. If you want to increase the saturation on the web version, cancel out of the Save for Web window and go back to Photoshop. 8) (Very Important) Before you save your image for the web you must make sure the Jpeg the “progressive” box is unchecked. 9) Now adjust the Quality slider to make your jpeg the correct file size. The correct size for a horizontal is between 90‑110k. The correct size for a vertical is between 50-60K.

NOTE: File sizes larger than the suggested amount will result in slower loading speeds. The above numbers are file sizes, not quality settings.

10) Save your JPEG for the web to an appropriate folder.

Going Live After we deliver your new liveBooks site to a temporary URL and you have had the chance to check it and populate it with your images, we can go live at any time. To initiate the process, please send an email to support@livebooks.com letting us know that you are ready to go live. Please provide the following information: 1) Where your domain was registered 2) Username 3) Password If you have trouble remembering where your site is registered, you can go to http://netsol.com, select “whois” and do a search for your domain name. This will tell you who the current registrar is. If you have forgotten your username and password, please contact your domain registrar (there is often a “forgot your password?” feature on their website that will email you a reminder). If you would like to set the new nameserver information yourself, please call our support number 800-253-2085 and we will provide you with that information. Please keep in mind that the change can take up to 72 hours to fully propagate. If you have an existing site, the change from that site to your new liveBooks site will occur seamlessly. Your old site will be up until the propagation is complete and your new site is live.

Email Information Prior to going live with your new liveBooks site, we will also need to switch any email addresses you currently have on that domain to avoid any downtime. To use an email client such as Outlook® to access your mail enter the following settings: Incoming POP: mail.domainname.com Outgoing SMTP: mail.domainname.com (does not require authentication) username: full email address (eg. johnny@domainname.com) password: will be provided to you OR, IF YOU ARE TRAVELLING: You can get your email via webmail by visiting: http://webmail.yourdomain.com and use the name before the “@” in your address.

LiveBooks Search Engine Compatibility If it seems that the GoogleTM search engine is not seeing your updated information, please be careful with submitting your information to Google too often as this will cause them to ignore your requests!

Why are liveBooks sites ranked so well in search engines? Each liveBooks flash site is accompanied by an HTML “ghost site” which is a text based version of your flash site. To Google and other search engines, the “ghost site” looks like a simple HTML text site that is built the way search engines like sites to be built. It includes your site title, description, keywords, image comments, title, and each jpg image name.

How do search engines rank sites? Search engines create a ranking by comparing a persons’ search to this info on all sites and assesses the ranking by which it deems most relevant. All text content is graded by priority. Your URL is top priority. Second is your site title, followed by site description, keywords, jpg image names, and image comments. To be ranked at the top, you want to have your name, and the word “photo” or “photography” in your URL. Whatever is in your URL should be repeated in your site title and description. In your site title, add keywords that describe the kind of work you do, like “food photographer” or “wedding photographer, NYC”, etc. Repeat these key words and add more in your site description. Repeating the key words at each level reinforces them in the ranking. Continue by adding your keywords. Here repeat your main keywords again, and add keywords that you are more loosely associated with. These words are given the least importance by the search engine, so do not put a lot of stock in them. They should stand to serve as support to the words above them in ranking. In summary, we can look at the ranking of content like a pyramid. At the top is the URL, and at the bottom your jpg image names and individual image descriptions.

Tips to help your site ranking: l The most important thing is to have your name and focus in your URL itself, and the same words in your site title, descriptions, and keywords. l Name your jpegs with words that point to your work. Image comments are also looked at, but these things have very low priority to the search engines, so it is not THAT important.

r.2 :: lite :: v.5

24


Welcome Pack - Lite

Other things you can do. l Buy a few more URLs which contain your name and your focus, set matching site title, descriptions, and key words. Have us alias all these to your main URL. Then, submit these new URLs on the search engines. This will greatly increase your ranking! For example. your main URL is www. janedoephotography.com. You might also buy www.janedoephotographe rweddingshawaii.com and http://www.janedoephotographymaui.com etc. Since keywords in URL’s are given the highest ranking by search engines, as well as links to your sites, this is a great way to super boost your ranking. l Add live-Books to your keywords. Our site is super well ranked, and our sites are linked to each other. Having the keyword will reinforce the strength of that link. l Analyze your competitors . If someone shows up above you in ranking, look at the keywords and try to come up with a better keyword strategy to trump them. You can hire us to help you do this. l Reciprocal Linking. Have as many sites link to you as possible. Search engines also put a lot of weight on how many sites link to you. The higher ranked those sites are in search engines, the higher credit search engines gives their link. You can see who is linking to you by searching search engines with this: link: www.yourdomainname. com. If you want to link to a friends site, add a link like this in your keyword window in your editSuite: <a href=“http://www.domain.com”>www.domain.com</a>

Common Misconceptions. l It is commonly believed that putting hidden text (text which is the same color as the background so people do not see it but search engines do) helps. This does not work because the search engines disqualify any text that is same color as the background. Search engines actively seek to prevent this. l It is commonly believed that search engines will not find a site because there is a redirect at the root URL that send the viewer to /detected.php?page=&pass=. This is not true. There is invisible HTML code that prevents this. Hopefully this helps. The rules by which search engines play are always changing, and our team is continually developing new ways to improve liveBook site rankings.
