August 2015 IndieNext Lists are ready for download… and more

Screenshot 2015-07-30 06.40.31The August 2015 IndieNext List full-list flier, paperback flier, and shelf-talkers for both are now available for download from the ABA website.

If you do not use the shelf-talkers for display, you can still make use of the pre-designed art to use in newsletter, on your website, or in social media. Simply open the PDF and take a screenshot.

On a PC by pressing the Print Screen button typically located in the upper right-hand corner of your keyboard. The resulting image will be saved as a PNG file to your clipboard, then you can paste it into photo editing software to crop it as desired.

On a Mac, hit Command (⌘)-Shift-3 to shoot the entire screen, or to specify an area press Command (⌘)-Shift-4, move the crosshair pointer to where you want to start the screenshot, drag to select an area, and when you’ve selected the area you want, release your mouse or trackpad button. The screenshot will be saved as a PNG file on your desktop. (This is how I captured the Circling the Sun recommendation above.)

PNG files, or portable network graphics, were developed when designers needed the ability to incorporate low-resolution images that loaded quickly yet still looked great. This is why these screenshots are a good option for digital application and look good in newsletters, on the web, and on social media.
