Photobooks

Category: Sharing Garden photos | Posted: Sun Dec 13, 2009 2:41 pm

Since I bought my digital camera I have loaded more than a thousand photos to my computer. I post some of them to My facebook, the Garden Stew, Smilebox and I do print some. I don't print a lot because I am not good at putting them in albums!

This year I started making photobooks on-line. There are many options on-line. My personal experience has been with Shutterly and Snapfish which I also use to print my photos. The photobook I have posted the link for is from Shutterfly and it is an 8x8 hardcover book of my garden photos. After you open the link, click on the rose and in the right hand corner is a button for full screen to view larger.

I have also made soft cover books of family pictures, my nephew's wedding and of course my garden.

I like the quality of the Shutterfly books. After you join (its free) they run specials all the time. You also get 50 free 4x6 prints just for joining. The photobook sizes run from 5X7 to 12x12. There are over 500 background designs and layouts to choose from. You can also use the Simple Path or autofill option and then make changes.

Just something to think about when you are looking for a project while your garden is hibernating.

This is an awesome idea. Thanks for sharing. I keep a garden journal in powerpoint, for my own entertainment. To be able to share events in a personalized way with family and friends is a terrific idea, especially for those hard to buy for people. This will make a perfect gift.

Your garden photos are spectacular ;) Forgot to mention since I was so blown away with the whole idea.. Beautiful yard and beds.

Oh my gosh! YOur garden is spectacular and the lawn is so manicured. Your garden looks like the botanical gardens in Ft. Worth (TX) and the arboretum in Dallas. That is such a wonderful idea, whether it is for a gift or just catalog all your photos. Thanks for adding a little joy to what has been a rather dismal day!

I just made a photobook for my niece for a Christmas gift using Picaboo. It was also easy to use and really a lot of fun. I compared it to Snapfish and the Kodak site and liked it better. I'd like to take a look at Shutterfly too.
