I chose a fairly simple book to create - a little book of light painting...
The first things I needed to do was create the pages fro this book on Photoshop.
I first created a title page - this was done through creating a new A3 canvas with a black background at 300dpi. I then used Tragan Colour which is 3D gold lettering as I though it suited the light painting.
I then began creating the pages from archived images of light painting that I thought would come together well as a collection.
I wrote an introduction using the same method as above with same typeface...
I then began adding images to pages so I created a new A3 Black canvas in landscape at 300 dpi for each page. I then changed the original image size to fit the page. I went into Image - Image Size. I then adjusted the image and made sure that it worked on the page and then added text where I felt was appropriate using the Text from the toolbar menu and adjusting the size of the font accordingly.
Here is one of the pages as an example - I will not post all pages here as you will be able to see this as the full flipbook in my website.
I then select all the files I would like to create into a book and I convert these file to PDF format as this is what the Yumpu needs...
I used an online jpeg to pdf converter to achieve this
After converting these files I can then upload my files in pdf format to Yumpu which converted these into a flipbook.
I went to menus and pages and instead of add page I went to the link icon.
I then added the embedded link from yumpu and then this created a new page with an embedded link on the menu - I changed the name of the page and then clicked on done.
I then could test this out by previewing the link and it took the user directly to my light painting flipbook.
I like the idea of a flipbook for some projects as I think this would work well - in this case I had to create a story with the photographs so that there was a reasoning behind the images and this brought them together - again with more time and different images I would probably have made a more portfolio book of images which would I think be an improvement.
