Albelli Photo Books

Albelli produce the most incredible photo books for every occasion.  I like to regularly get my digital photos made into photo books, which are a wonderful way of preserving our memories.  So far, this February has given us some unexpected snow days, half term and Valentine's Day.  With so many fabulous photo opportunities I've got lots of lovely photographs of my family that deserve to be on display for everyone to look at.  So I was very pleased when Albelli offered me the chance to make my own photo book.

I love the Albelli site.  You can make photo books instantly by choosing which pictures you want including and letting the programme do the rest.  But I love the freedom of making my own.

Page layouts, backgrounds, number of photos per page, text and photo sizes can be played around with to create your own unique design.  I loved the creative freedom, dragging, dropping and cropping my pictures in my own way, picking colour schemes and adding text boxes.

It is quite intuitive and user friendly and regular save prompts ensure you don't lose your work!

Creating my Albelli Photo Book
When you have created your book you can choose optional extras such as a full photo front cover and extra thick glossy pages.  These make your creation even more special.

My Photo Book arrived a week after I made it which is a great turnaround time.  Email messages kept me informed of its progress along the way.  The books are sent in sturdy cardboard packaging and are wrapped in plastic so they don't get damaged.

I have to confess that I let out a little gasp of joy when I saw my book.  It was so glossy and colourful.  No wonder Albelli were voted as the No1 Photo Book by The Gadget Show!

  1. Absollutely stunning - I always use - thanks for bringing Albelli to my attention I did not know they were voted number 1.
    I did just spend £150 on Photobox though, which I have 3 months to use.
    I am using it on 2 x 100 page A3 photobooks, a canvas for my dad and 100 A5 photos. What'll be interesting is getting the time to compile the photobook.
    Last night my time on computer was spent finishing Payroll till 1 a.m. and this morning, tying up loose ends and replying to emails (working part-time is tough).
    Your book looks STUNNING.

  2. I love what they can do with photos nowadays. I can just imagine all those gorgeous photos of Aaron on display :)
    You sound so busy, you poor thing! I hope you get a break soon with some less hectic days so you can have fun making those photo books and reliving all the wonderful memories as you go through all the pictures. Take care xxx

  3. Your photo books never cease to amaze me - the artist in you really shows in the way you portray your pictures. Albelli Photo Books are such a good idea when you have a lovely family and enjoy photography and can come up with a brilliant presentation of family pictures. By the way, I love the cover - the cup cakes look very professional.
