With Flipsnack, you can create a flipbook even when you don’t have a ready-made PDF. I’ll show you how.
Start from Create, select a publication template, and select the pages that you want to have in your project.
The editor is drag and drop based, so you can change photos without messing up the layout. The template can be customized extensively: change colors and texts, or remove elements, to make the page look exactly as you want it to. We recommend using colors that compliment the image.
Repeat the same process on the second page. Drag and drop your image, edit the text and change the image tag.
The back cover should have a similar look to the front cover, so use the same colors. You’ll notice that the editor “remembered” the custom colors that have been used so far, so that saves you a lot of time.
By now you already know how to replace images. It’s important to use visual imagery because it draws attention to your content.
When you add a new page to your flipbook, it is placed after the selected page. You can then use another layout from the layouts gallery, or you can work on a blank canvas and arrange images and texts to your liking. However, it is a lot easier to work with Flipsnack layouts.
Make your publication more engaging by adding videos. Don’t forget to use the same colors throughout your project for visual consistency.
You will always know if the page that you’re working on is placed on the left or the right by looking at the page thumbnails.
It’s time to check the preview. Select the first page to view from there.
If you’re happy about the result, publish it. Provide all the required details, as they will be indexed by search engines, and make your flipbook more discoverable.
After your work is published you can take another look at it and then share it with your friends or your fans.
And this, my friends, is how you make a flipbook without a PDF.
