I'd really like to make a Photo Book as a gift for a friend, but have had no experience with them. In lieu of owning a Mac, iPhoto books
aren't an option. The only option I've seen that really interests me are MyPublisher's PhotoBooks
, a company to whom I've read iPhoto books are outsourced to anyway. I'm not interested in cheesy effects like borders, backgrounds, and themed graphics. Most important is flexibility with layout. I'm not sure about text yet, but I think I'd like to include a little, and the option to place it in serveral areas. I'd like to hear experiences people have had with MyPublisher, Picaboo
, Sony's ImageStation Photobooks
, PhotoWorks Books
, Shutterfly Photo Books
, or other similar companies, including the iPhoto books. Info on the quality of the binding, covers, photos, and so on would be most appreciated. How "professional" was the result? Also, please note the resolution of the photos that you used. Many, many thanks!
