Exporting from Fundy


Fundy doesn't allow you to export directly to a print-redy PDF, Momento's preferred upload format, so we recommend using Momento Pro's free software to convert the JPEGs exported from Fundy to Momento's "Master File". This will allow you to order immediately on upload, as well as ensuring all colour management is handled correctly.
 
 
 
  • Once you have completed designing your album or book pages, proceed to export by clicking the
 
 
 
 

Export Options

  • We recommend that you export to Adobe RGB. Momento's systems all use Adobe RGB as the native colour space, so this will ensure no loss of gamut if you shoot and edit in Adobe RGB.
    
 
 
 
     
 

Designing Covers


We recommend using the free Momento Software to design your cover - see the next step.

Momento Pro albums are not available with printed covers, however you can supply an image for a Prestige Mount cover - an inset metal print in matte or gloss.  The easiest way to design
a Prestige Mount cover is in Photoshop


 

Uploading + Ordering Fundy designs


Once you have imported your page designs into the Momento software and designed your cover (optional), you can export your master file and upload it to the Momento Pro website and order immediately.
