okay so to be brutal.. and its really not that brutal.. the very first page of the second post with the flowers that i dont care for. and its simply just the color doesnt quite match with the majority of the album and that page. perhaps try more of a sand color and not such a dark one. most of the other pages are all very soft colors almost pastels so i feel it is a bit too dark. also the soft beveled edge around the picture id want to make a little crisper.
I welcome the brutality! :-) smile67.gif

haha.

My only issue with the software I am using is there are only a certain number of colors available. I want more of a sand color, but it's not an option ... and none of the other background colors seem to give the effect I was hoping for, so that color is the closest.

Here is the page, updated since that initial post. You think it will be better with a crisp edge? I like the gradient, but I'm not a professional, by any stretch - so I defer back to you! :-)

Feel free to offer any other suggestions!! And thanks for the feedback!

Great job, Tami!

 

I might have to con/bribe you into doing mine! LOL

 

Are you including AHR photos? (the first page didn't load completely and I was crying through what I saw...)

I didn't include AHR photos in this one. It just didn't seem to fit, but I might add them in before sending it to print. That might actually be a good idea since there were so many more people at the AHR who didn't make the DW.

I was going to add the AHR photos to our album, but maybe I should include them in the parents albums as well. Especially since otherwise there aren't many pics of my Mom - and I do have more of her in our AHR pics. Good suggestions!

And BTW, I"d be happy to do yours. It was fun!

I really like it for the Mac. Totally bummed right now though b/c my Mac is only 3 months old and the screen crashed on me yesterday. I hope it's covered under the warranty. I have such bad luck with computers! (I have a mini PC for work that I'm using for BDW and FaceBook addictions in the meantime!).

So the program I used is from the UK - Personalised Photo Books and Canvas Prints from Digital Photos - and it's worked great. Took some getting used to, but I think that's because I've never done a photo book before.

I'll let you know about quality once I order it, but the pricing isn't bad for the size book and number of pages either. Plus they have online coupons.
Your Book Is Fabulous and Seeing that you did it all yourself, makes it THAT much better!!!
PLease let us know how the book turns out once you get it back!! I would love to do something like this myself after we get married and get the pics back.
Great Job!!!

FINALLY ordered one copy of our album for DH's parents as part of their Christmas gift. My Mac has a cracked screen so it took forever to figure out how to upload the book to the online order site. But, it's done. Hopefully it will arrive before we leave for their house on Christmas Eve. It was $152 for the 84-page book and expedited shipping from the UK. We only ordered one copy to ensure we like the quality (we aren't going to visit my folks until mid-January for a late Christmas, so as long as we love it, we'll order theirs). Anyway - just wanted to update with the cost - it seemed kind of high ... but again, we'll wait to see the quality of the book. I hope the shipping is FAST!!!

Okay, so ordered on Dec. 7 & and it should arrive by this Friday, December 19. Shipping from the UK, that's pretty fast. I'll post some pics of the finished product once it arrives!
