I love taking photos but the majority of them are not stored on my computer, Facebook or via Instagram so when Superphoto asked if I would like to review one of their PhotoBooks I jumped at the chance.
I have a huge stash of wedding photos on my computer that my brother very kindly took on the day and I thought it would be lovely to be able to put some of them into an album.
I reviewed the 15cm x 20cm hardback Portrait book with 24 pages which retails for £9.99 but there are larger books available as well and you can add more pages on at an additional cost.
Putting your book together is really quite straightforward especially if you are familiar with something like PicMonkey as the layout is quite similar but even if you have never done this before it is really quite easy to follow.
To get started you first choose the photo you would like on the cover and then onto each page in turn. You will notice ------- lines which show where the page cuts off so you can select photos that will fit or crop them down if necessary.
I chose to put borders around some of my pictures to add a bit more interest but you can also add text and effects to your photos if you want to so it allows for personalisation. If any of your photos are low quality a warning sign will appear to let you know as they won't print as well.
I also liked that you could even pop a picture on the back cover just to finish it off- here is mine.
Once you have created your book and placed the order you then receive an email to let you know the order has been received and is being processed.
Overall I am really impressed as it has allowed me to collate some wedding photos that I love and can now share with my family and I found the whole process really straightforward. The whole service is automated and very efficient.
This may also be of interest if you are planning a wedding on a budget and have a family member or friend who can take photos for you and then pop them into something like this.
My book was delivered in a flat cardboard box which fitted through my letterbox (meaning I didn't need to go to the post office to collect it!) and was well protected.
As well as photobooks they also offer mugs, canvas and calendars so lots of options and some great ideas for a Christmas present!
Thanks for reading!
