A couple of weeks ago I stumbled on a link for a “free photo book.” I figured it was a promo where I had to buy something first. It wasn’t. It was an actual free photo book, and a very nice one with a customized photo cover. I did have to pay for shipping.
I shared my great find with a few friends, but when I visited Victoria’s blog, Couture Unraveled, today, she had a post about this FREE offer. http://coutureunraveled.blogspot.com/2010/08/free-photo-book.html I decided to share my finished book, in case you’re interested.
I didn’t really have an idea of what photos I wanted to put in a book. Then I realized a book about our first year owning a boat would make a nice keepsake.
I have had other photo books made in the past so I was a little concerned about the confinement of options with page layout. Picaboo is the most customizable, self-publishing software I have used. It is awesome.
I love scrapbooks but I have not been able to spend the time, or the money, getting into that beautiful art. While printed photo books are not the same as hand-crafted scrapbooks, they are so much better than merely printing photos. I highly encourage you to make a photo book.
