Steps to Creating a Photo Book Online
1.) Gather the photos that you would like to have published. Once you have gathered all the photos you want to use, sort them into different categories. This is especially important and beneficial if you are going to create more than one memory book.
2.) Save all the photos you are going to use to a folder on your computer. Again, if you are going to create more than one book, you will want to create more than one folder. Doing this allows you to quickly access the photos when you are ready to upload the photos to the online publisher.
3.) Choose an online publisher. There are hundreds of online publishers that can be found on the Internet. Choosing the one that is right for you will be a personal decision. Doing a quick search for online discount codes may help you choose the publisher that will meet your needs best.
4.) Online photo book publishers have a variety of photo book designs and templates that are available to use. Browse the available options to find the choices that meet your stylistic needs.
5.) Once you have decided which designs and templates are right for your unique book, you can upload the photos you want to use. Since instructions for uploading photos can vary slightly from publisher to publisher, it is essential to follow the instructions given by the publisher you have chosen. However, there is no reason to fret over this process, no matter which company you have chose to work with, uploading photos is remarkably easy.
6.) When your photos have uploaded successfully, you will be given a chance to edit your photo book.
7.) During the editing process, you will be given the opportunity to personalize your book even further. Often times, photo book creators will add text, dates, and other personal information. Adding details to your personal book gives you the opportunity to truly tell a story with your photos. You can also crop photos, rotate photos and move, add or delete photos during this process.
8.) After the editing process is complete, you are ready to submit your photo book for publishing. However, before you finalize your order, make sure to preview it. While previewing your order, make sure it is exactly the way you want it to be including all dates, text and pictures. This process is extremely important because you will not be able to make any changes once the order is submitted for printing.
Photo books are a great way to create a lasting memory of a particular event. These photographic memory books also make great gifts for family and friends near and far. Better yet, beautiful photo books can be made by anyone from the comfort of your home, and delivered directly to your front door.
