I absolutely love photo books. I love the ease of creating and customizing a photo book online, rather than scrap-booking. There are so many options, styles, sizes and designs available that you will never end up with 2 photo books that are the same. I recently had the opportunity to create a photo book on Mixbook.com for review, and they have a great variety of options for all your photo book needs! I designed an 11x8.5 landscape book with a hardcover. There were many themes to choose from, such as travel, birthday, wedding, etc. or you could start with a blank book, and customize it. This is the option I chose, and added a simple blue background to each page in the book. Uploading and adding the pictures was very easy, and I was able to arrange each page according to my preference. Size and number of images per page, layout, etc were quite simple to arrange. Then I was able to add text, and style it-size, font, color, etc. There are also scrapbook images/text you can add, which I took advantage of as well. Fun little clipart images and words, such as "family", "memories", etc. Once I finished my book and placed the order, it only took a few days for me to get a shipping notice, and within a week or so of ordering, I had my photo book in hand! I was very impressed with how it turned out! I made this book a sort of memory book from our trip to Texas and New Mexico, and included pics of everything-from dining to driving, sleeping to swimming, and just plain ole family fun! The whole family has enjoyed paging through it, and it will definitely be a wonderful memory of our fun trip!
Here are a few pics of my photo book:
