Hawaii book


Took a quick video of the book I made from my February trip to Hawaii. Made the book via Photobooks – a groupon I had purchased. I think the quality of the paper is nice (matte!), the print quality of the photos is just as good as any of the other photo books I’ve made (My Publisher, iPhoto, Blurb) and you can’t even tell the iPhone photos from the DSLR photos!

The software was actually one of the easier ones that I’ve tried and lots of template options. Oh and it’s fully customizable – you can change the shape of any photo box, place text anywhere and use your own fonts!

I am pretty happy with how it turned out, I took a risk with the cover and chose indigo silk with photo inset. Don’t love that at all. The silk is OK, but the photo inset is glued down on top of the silk and looks crappy. I would rather have a hole through the cover to the front page, or the photo should be properly inset. And for some reason the dust cover pages are a little wrinkly … not sure why. I give it a B+ overall.
