timeTRAVELLERS - Turkey • 2013
by Stephen Oliver
Four friends explore Turkey in October 2013. The two week tour was organized through Medhills Travel.
Hi cristinabureI built the maps in Google Maps from GPS data gathered by my iPhone. I then took that URL (to the map) and entered it in bit.ly to generate a shorter URL which makes for a better QR code when shrunk down. I then used the bit.ly URL to create the code at qrcode-generator.com. Be sure to export it as an .eps image as that works best for print purposes. Also try and place your codes on the page away from other codes and text. Don't go too small or people may have trouble scanning the code. The shorter the URL, the less dense/complex the generated code. Hope this helps. Leave me another comment if you need more help.

Hi Stephen,LOVE your format and I too went to Turkey recently so it would work well with my photos. I'm not too familiar with how to get your template from QR codes...I went to the link you mention above but once I'm there, how so I find your template? Thanks in advance for any additional help in this regard!Cristina

Your book was a pleasure to see. Spent one day in Kusadasi recently, coming in on a cruise ship, and am amazed to see what we missed. Good photos, great organization. Fabulous book. Thank you!Jonna MendezKnoxville, Maryland

Hi Stephan, Love your book. I was in Turkey same time of year in 2010. So I have similar photos. I like how you have a lot of colour in your landscape photos. A Lot of mine were a bit washed out.

Hi Mrinal. Thanks for your kind words on my book. I created the book in Adobe InDesign (on a Mac using the Blurb plugin). I did not use any Blurb software so no template was used. The design/layout is my own. Feel free to copy the look if you want. It's not copyrighted. The QR codes were generated online at www.the-qrcode-generator.com Be sure to use .eps format as your output at that will look best for print. I built my maps in Google Maps using data collected in an iPhone app called Geotag Photos Pro. Hope this help. If you have more questions, feel free to contact me.

Hi Stephen: Great creation! We have just returned from a three-week trip to Greece and Turkey. It was mostly Greece plus four days in Kusadasi (visiting Ephesus, Sirince, and Izmir). I am in the process of making my book. I really loved your format and theme. Would it be OK if I loosely follow your theme and format in my book? I would really appreciate that. Also, I would love to know how you had incorporated the Google map scan symbol on various pages.Thank you so much.Sincerely,Mrinal DasEdmonton, Alberta
