Resize Image in Blurb

After uploading the image, you can click on it to reveal 4 draggable corners. Pull a corner in or out to resize the image.

Please note that resizing an image this way will not change the original file dimensions; only how it is displayed on the web. Therefore, generating a PDF may result in the image showing up differently than expected. In some cases, the file may need to be resized outside of Brandboom before being uploaded to avoid sizing issues.

Insert Video

While editing the Blurb, click the 'Insert/Edit Video' icon.

The 'Insert/Edit Media' panel will appear. 

Method 1: Add Video with URL

On the 'General' tab, enter the video's URL into the 'Source' field. (Note: you will need to have the video hosted online and copy the URL from the website)

You can also set specific dimensions for the size of the video player in the boxes at the bottom. Click 'Save' to finish.

You will see a temporary blue box as a placeholder for the video. But don't worry...
