Examples of Photo Books I have made.
Grrrr….I have just spent half an hour adding text to this lot and then when I went to save it, Tumblr had a technical error and lost it all!!!!
- Uniform sizes
- Large number of images in a small amount of space
- Highly customisable
- Can be created at home, online or with downloadble software
- Easy to transport to show family or clients
- Relatively cheap compared to printing lots of images and buying albums
- A lot of varience on in the quality obtained, even from the same manufacturer. You have to trust the printer. I have had a number that have been oversaturated in terms of colour and I have sent them back and had them re printed.
- Not every one is computer literate and some people find creating the book quite difficult especially when many companies all use their own software which often varies from one another’s.
- You have to research the paper quality used and the paper weight used as again, this can vary alot between manufaturers.
- You have very little control over the quality of the outputted print. You have to trust the printing company that they will do a good job, unfortunately, many of the larger companies just churn photo books out without paying much attention to the quality. It is just a case of shopping around until you find someone who produces a product you are pleased with.
