iPhoto is a product of Apple, right??

sarah, when I saw your shout that you got your MP book, I was scratching my head thinking, I thought she usually used Shared ink? now I get it, lol!

 

You said something about a photographer account on shared ink, is that right? Could I ask how much it is? (I could have read your post wrong too!)

I've never used iphoto either, so i don't know. I've also seen a snapfish book, and that's similar to the MP quality. They are relatively inexpensive.

 

I also didn't care for the extra blank page at the end, especially since it has the MP website address on it. But, I actually think SharedInk does that too, unless you're using a photographer account. All of my books through them have been with a photog account so I don't know for sure.

 

I just made a book for a friend through SharedInk. We ordered it last Friday, and she just got a shipping confirmation that it will arrive on Monday. So, maybe their turnaround is getting faster. That is definitely one thing that bothers me- it takes so long!

 

I'm in the process of researching flushmount books right now. I'd really like to make one for my wedding album. We'll see...they are soooooo expensive, even just at "cost" no wonder photogs charge so much for them!

I paid $130. It's really only worth it if you think you'll make multiple books...which I'm sure I will.

Hopefully he's busy getting Jessalyn's pics done!

Yeah iphoto is a apple thing but I saw a link to iphoto on Mypublisher. These are all new to me so just trying to figure everything out. My FSIL does all of her editing and photography stuff on a Mac so I thought iphoto might work best but if there are other books that are better quality I would like to use them.

I'm an Apple/Mac/i-whatever person too. I don't own a Mac right now, although I'd love to... I always like the products they release. I just checked out their website, and they look relatively easy to use, and offer really good tutorials online. I don't know about the quality though. It doesn't look like it'd be shotty work at all, but its tough to know if you'll be happy with it until you get one in your hands! I'm half tempted to try iPhoto now...

I've seen an iPhoto book and I think that's what we're going to use to make albums for our parents. But honestly I've never seen the other ones so I wouldn't be able to compare and say they are better or worse than the MP or SI. I remember discussing the iPhoto books with Jonathan - I will try and find the link.

 

Jess - iPhoto is a mac program that lets you make albums and then order them directly from your program (over an internet connection of course) from Mac's printer. Other companies (like MP or SI) can also accept the iPhoto "album" (meaning the album/file you created on your computer) and then they print it using their own materials. I don't know if that explains it...

 

So if you decide that you like one of the other publishers your FSIL could put the album together on her Mac using iPhoto but could technically have it printed elsewhere...

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
