    You are limited with your options though. You can't make the pictures any size you want. There are about 10 templates for each 1, 2, 3 & 4 pics per page. Then there are some for 5+. You can't customize the layouts so it has to fit into a template already there. You can chose a different template per page though. When you first start to make it, they will already put a variety of page layouts together. I always changed the default (which is simple) to make it how I want.

    OK, again probably too complicated. Go play with it & you'll see how simple it is.

At the end you can rearrange the pictures. That may have sounded more complicated than it really is.

      You can save the project too. I usually have to break it into multiple sessions because I'll spend so long on one book.

      My guest book will ship next week. I'll post it then. It has 1 small picture per page & lots of space for signing.

      I'm thinking of making one for each of my bridesmaids. I will definitely have to save the project, I get way too impatient with those sort of things. Thanks again for the idea!

        If you are going to be getting a bunch, definitly wait for a promo. I'll try to post them as I find them. They have buy one get one free alot. If you have an account with them, they will email you offers like "buy anything by xx/07 & get a free photobook." Otherwise they can get expensive.

          Thanks! If you could post them, that would be great. In the meantime, I'll sign up and see if they email me anything. I think I may have ordered something from them before, so I may have an account already, not sure.

                  One thing to keep in mind with Shutterly and My Publisher is that if you use their full-bleed page, you can upload a jpg of a pre-made page from your favorite photo-editing software. For instance, I can premake my pages (with whatever borders, backgrounds, etc I want) and just add them into full-bleed pages.
