The Measure, Mark and Fold method offers 3 option. Single image, 2 line and 3 line.
MMF – Single Image
A Mark, Measure Fold Pattern is the simplest pattern that can be created. It will suit most basic patterns. There is no cutting of the book required.
Scroll to select your silhouette image on the left, or type in the filter box to find the silhouette required from your silhouette library.
If you have not yet added your silhouette to the library, you can click to add a new silhouette from this screen.
Click to select your silhouette and click the Use Selected Image Button – this will transfer it over to the window on the right.
Click CREATE PATTERN and enter your pattern information.
Bookami® will now analyse your details to create the measurements for your pattern.
During this process it will remove any transparency from the silhouette and try to make any off-black sections to a full black colour.
If your silhouette fits into the book details you entered, you will be taken directly to the Preview Window to view your pattern.
If the Bookami® software knows it can optimise your image, you will be taken to the Optimise Image Screen.
MMF – 2 Line
A Mark, Measure Fold Pattern 2 line allows for a slightly more detailed pattern. It will require you to provide 2 separate images for the pattern. A 2 line pattern will require you to cut the pages of your book in half to create the 2 sections.
The instructions are the same as above, however, instead of only selecting 1 image, you will be required to select 2 images, a top and a bottom image.
MMF – 3 Line
A Mark, Measure Fold Pattern 3 line allows for intricate patterns. It will require you to provide 3 separate images for the pattern. A 3 line pattern will require you to cut the pages of your book in 2 places to create the 3 sections.
The instructions are the same as above, however, instead of only selecting 1 image, you will be required to select 3 images, a top, a middle and a bottom image.
