Using BookBildr for Education

Yes, you can. Use the arrow icons to move your pages around. You can also zoom out to 25% and drag and drop page thumbnails around.

Yes, you can but we don’t recommend it because Word and similar programs add hidden formatting that can “break” your book. For the best result, paste your text from a simple text editor like Notepad and press Ctrl+Shift+V (Cmd+Shift+V on a Mac) when pasting.

Yes, absolutely! BookBildr uses Google Fonts, which means that there’s a font for practically any language. To find the right font for your language, go to and use the “Languages” dropdown menu to find compatible fonts. You can then select the compatible font you like in the BookBildr Editor.

Category: Policies

All illustrations provided by BookBildr come from free stock websites. The illustrations are public domain and are free for commercial use. If you think that an illustration breaches copyright laws, please contact us via the contact form and report your concern.

If you are using your own images in your book, it’s your responsibility to make sure you aren’t breaching any rights and your content is solid from an ethical point of view. We advise you to double-check our Terms of Use before uploading images.

Here’s an overview of how you can use BookBildr content.

What’s allowed:

  • Commercial and noncommercial use across print and digital, except in the cases mentioned in “What’s not allowed”.
  • Attribution is not required but very much appreciated. Something like “This book was made with” would mean a lot to us.

What’s NOT allowed:

  • Don’t sell unaltered copies of an image (e.g. don’t create a sheet with a single image from us and sell it as your own). This also applies to creating photo albums using the photos we provide and crediting yourself as the photographer. That’s not only dishonest but also illegal.
  • Don’t use our content to portray identifiable people or brands in a bad light.
  • Don’t use our content to create misleading associations with identifiable brands, products, and/or services.

The copyright is yours and BookBildr doesn’t retain any rights to user-made content. All the illustrations we offer are public domain, so you don’t have to worry about that either.
