Picture Paper


Picture Paper is an opportunity to take an entire print publication and place it on your Web site in a visual format.

Format
Because the width required to display a page of your publication is usually much greater than the width of a standard Web site, the Picture Page interface is designed to operate independent of your Linear Web site. So, for example, you might have a link on your Web site which opens an issue in the Picture Paper format. The Picture Paper format would have a link returning to your Web site.

Process
First, you upload a JPG, GIF or PDF image of the pages from the publication or supplement. This can be done multiple times for a single issue.

When processing the images, your Linear system will create three jpg files from each original - a small, medium and large reproduction.

The small image will be used in a navigation frame. Web visitors click on the small page image to open the next larger version in the center of the page. The medium sized page image allows the Web visitor an opportunity to see the page before loading the full-size page image.

Special Features
The Picture Paper presentation can include a menu across the top with links to your main site, a listing of recent issues in the picture paper format, a link to the current issue and a link to special issues.

Also, the Picture paper format can be configured to have banner ads across the top which automatically rotate. Each area of the Picture Paper format (1. the menu, 2. the body, and 3. the navigation bar) can be customized for size, color, background images and more.

Quotes
smiley pete"Linear publishing has provided a turnkey solution for Mile High Newspapers that far exceeds anything that we could have accomplished on our own. While the capabilities of the system are impressive, what I have found most useful is Linear's willingness to implement new features and its ability to support the ones it has. The Linear system has so many features, that one newspaper will never use them all. I have looked at other newspaper content management systems, but have yet to find one that matches Linear's price, tech support and feature set."
