I wrote the journal and integrated the pictures in a Word document using Lulu's template, and my daughter Jill* has been helping me to upload the file to Lulu for publishing.
We encountered several problems converting the Word doc to a pdf in a form acceptable to Lulu, and one of these related to text embedding. I must thank Alan Rayner alanrayneroutdoors.blogspot.com for some useful advice which eventually solved that problem.

Conrad Walks Wales will be the sixth of these books that I have commissioned and I reckon it will be the best (I am still awaiting my copy). This time I have made photos bigger and most have been enhanced and cropped to some extent using Photoshop. This book runs to 237 pages; for anybody interested it can be bought as a hardback at a net cost of £36.29 or as a pdf download for £5.00 by visiting www.lulu.com/ and entering Conrad Walks in the search box.
* Jill - Some of my readers will know my daughter Jill, and I feel that now is the time to announce the fact that she is expecting, and I will hopefully become a granddad for the first time in October. Further relevant reports will no doubt follow.
