How to specify and order an album using page layouts exported from 3rd-party software

Important: Make sure you’ve created the layouts in the correct format. If not, you’ll need to re-export and possibly redesign the files.

If you want us to colour correct the layouts, you’ll need to send us layered PSDs. If we are NOT colour correcting please soft proof your files before uploading them for reliable, high-quality prints.

How to order

We suggest that you set up (specify) the album as explained here before you design the layouts. That will clarify your selections, and there’ll be less chance of designing an album we can’t make, or of submitting files in the wrong format.

Except for the file upload step, album set-up works the same for 3rd party software users as it does for people using Queensberry's own software or design service. Just select 3rd Party as the “design method”.

Assuming you've select 3rd Party as the “design method”, once you've set up and saved the album specifications in the normal way you’ll be taken to a new screen where you can upload your page layout files (“spreads”). 

Drag and drop your files on to the window or click the 'Select files' button and select the files you wish to upload. 

For more information on file specifications, select the UPLOADING PSD FILES or UPLOADING PDF FILES buttons.


Once your files have uploaded, click the 'Send Files' button to upload them to Workspace.


The files may upload in order of size, which may put the spreads out of their correct order. Once you've clicked the 'Send files' button, you will be taken to a page where you can check and rearrange the order of spreads. 

Once you're happy with your PSDs or PDF file, click the 'View Album Details' button to finalise your album details and place your order. 


Enter the rest of your album order details and any special instructions and then click 'Confirm Place Order' when you are ready.


You should expect to receive confirmation documents from Queensberry within 24-48 hours of placing your order. Review these documents and reply to the email so your order can be put into production. If you don't receive your confirmation documents, email us.
