sending charts to graphic designer

Post by peteonguitar » Fri Dec 20, 2019 1:27 pm

Hello, new to this site....recommended by a friend.

I have recently completed a guitar repertoire book for beginners/ improvers containing 50 original tunes.

The book design looks very professional but is severely let down by the appearance of the songs which I have created using

Sibelius 4.

Since the graphic designer couldn't open the sib files, I had to print out the songs and then scan them to him for insertion into the shell of the book.

However, the end results are very poor and I'm very loathe to have any printed, let alone try to sell them.

Is there any way I can send these file to him without compromising the quality of the original sib files?

Sibelius 4 is a little outdated now and doesn't seem to have a convert to pdf facility.

All replies very gratefully received.....

Peter D.

You have been answered in the Facebook forum.

I doubt there's anyone here who isn't there too!

There is software that will let you print as a PDF. Like Cute PDF Writer.
