The New Age of Photo Albums
It’s a brave new world when it comes to turning your digital creativity into something that can be preserved and shared in an analog world.
Over the holidays, I created and published 2 hardcover photography books to give to different families as Christmas presents.
It was a labour of love.
After testing various different photo book publishing applications, I decided that Blurb was the solution that fit my requirements the best.
- needed to offer a configurable dust jacket
- needed to have reasonable software to download (I wanted something more than just drag and drop in a browser window
- needed to have LOTS of configuration choices in the format of the overall book, as well as individual pages
- needed to have a great price for 40+ pages
It took me about 2 weeks to finalize the formatting and the pictures for each book.
Ordering was a SNAP.
Delivery was speedy.
Books were outstanding.
The printing and the photos were incredible.
Due to the subject matter (pictures of little kids and the wild internet don’t mix very well), I unfortunately can’t show you how the exact books turned out… but I will be creating new ones, and will provide you with the URL to them!
