Value For Money
This photo book is quick, easy and fun to make. Its overall appearance is a basic blue linen 20x15cm hard back cover. Inside, images are printed on good quality paper with a matte finish. The book takes 24 pictures, each fills the entire page and only allows one photo per page, but you can rotate pictures or move them around within the frame, to get the best part of the image. There are no other editing features however, you can edit your photos in editing software, prior to adding them to the book if you want text or other enhancements.
The website is very easy to use, the product is the first item on the photo book page and you create the book online. There's no software to download for this particular product so its very straight forward. You can select one picture per page in either portrait or landscape but there's no other customisation options for this product. The website says you can create this book in five minutes but I found it took a little longer than that. It speeds things up if you pre-select and edit your photos before you start.
The overall performance of this product is excellent. The print quality is very pleasing, and colours are clear and true. The matte finish has a smooth sheen producing a high quality appearance. The delivery was particularly prompt and the packaging is appropriate as the product arrived in perfect condition.
I would regard this item as being value for money costing, £13.99 + £3.99 p&p. There are very similar products available on other websites slightly dearer at £15.99 + £3.99 p&p.
My verdict is that it’s ideal for showing off your holiday photos or the pictures from a special event. The pro's are that its quick to make, great quality and speedy delivery. The con's are only the limited editing features – but this can be done beforehand. Overall I'm very pleased with the product and would recommend.
