    I used my publisher for my engagement photod and it looks fine. I've read some bios where the pages were created using power point and transferred to my publisher. I'm not that advanced yet, nor was my photographer but from the look of the books on the bios it's great.



    I plan on using my publisher again for the wedding! If you'd like some names of the brides I can attempt to locate again.

      This is a great idea. Also, for all Mac users out there, you can design really cool stuff right in iPhoto, upload to mac.com, and get books printed there that are absolutely stunning. My boss is always making them for people for wedding/baby gifts and they look so professional, customized, and amazing.

        I've never used the other programs personally but my publisher seems to be the first choice hands down.

        i just started putting my book together and it is really easy...some tips...



        1. make a seperate folder with all the pics you want to use. it is easier than trying to pick from the hundreds of pics while you are in the program.



        2. have the pics in the order you want your album. doesn't have to be the exact order because you can move the pics around but if they are a general order or grouped it will be so much easier.

          Thanks Tammy I downloaded the program last night so I can start playing with it. I've seen on the knot some girls use powerpoint or another program first but I don't understand how you would upload that....are you using anything else or just publisher?

            I found this post on the knot: The bookmaker softwear has to be used regardless. I did a book similar to the tempates they provided (but in Shutterfly). In the end, I didn't like the restrictions with how many picutres I could fit on a page, where I had to journal, etc. If you design the "picture" yourself using a program like powerpoint- you can layer pictures on top of one another, write accross the pictures, etc. You have more versatility. I have the directions to get started if you would like me to e-mail them to you, leave your address. Or look at CourntneyJean 's bio, theres less detailed, but still good directions there.
