In-store ordering and before you leave on a trip
Before starting, a small amount of preparation will make it fast and easy to create photo books in a very short time...
Below are the steps and descriptions on how to manage your photos and successfully create your photo book in no time!
It is much easier to automatically sort your images by date and time if you set your camera to the correct date and time before you shoot. Synch your camera date and time with your friends cameras to ensure the order is right when you start creating.
Pre-sort your photos at home as much as possible. This way you can ensure your photos are loaded in sequence automatically, especially when sharing photos or adding scanned images. Rename your files with a zero in front of the file name,eg: 001.jpg 002.jpg 003.jpg etc. If you want to have particular photos on a page then also add a letter at the start. eg: A001.jpg A002.jpg A003.jpg A004.jpg for the first page and the following page will start with B001.jpg and so on.
Use our automatic Photo Fix and other quick and easy editing features to improve contrast, brighten colours,remove red-eye, choose black-and-white or sepia.
Once loaded you can sort your photos by filename, date (last edited) or as loaded.Then on each page add or remove photos and even make one image the 'hero' (main image)of a particular page. Shuffle and manually re-arrange till you are happy with the composition.
You can select a photo for the album’s cover page, select a title and add text to any page.
Add more than just digital photos. You can scan old photos, negatives, slides, children’s artwork, recipes, work images, tickets and travel mementos.
