My new photobook
Posted 21 December 2006 - 03:42 PM
For those that are considering taking on a project like this, realize that you really do get what you pay for. These are very expensive books, but the quality was excellent compared to others I have seen.
Also, you can get as detailed or not as you like, but I have over 60 hours into my book when you consider the time it took me to crop the pictures they way I wanted them, layout the pages, upload to the photobook website, re-do the layout of the pages, etc. I know I am very picky, but it would take anyone a much longer time to make this book as opposed to a Kodak or Shutterly book.
I used Lumapix Photofusion software (A+) that I paid about $100 for to make my pages. For anyone who wants an easy to use software that is much easier than photoshop, this is the way to go.
If you are interested in the type of book I made, feel free to contact me or Tammy (host) for more info. I'd be happy to share more tips and things I had to learn the hard way. I'll try to start a thread of Photobook tips within the next few days. Here it is...

Thanks for all your help and suggestions while I was working on this!

I also took on the task of making photo books for x-mas gifts to my family. We go on a family vacation every year together and so I put the pictures of our trip this summer together. I used shutterfly and LOVED IT!!!! It is super easy to use and I got the books yesterday (they estimated they wouldn't be here until Friday so I was happy with the quick turn around.) The quality of the books is great. Granted mine are filled with summer vacation pictures so I used fun and colorful backgrounds not fancy wedding pictures. I ordered 8x8 books with 21 pages of photos - the entire cover is a photo of a lake where we stay - it looks great! I payed $29.99 for each book plus shipping. Well worth it and I am sure my family will love them!
