    Any suggestions for photo books?

    Have tended to use Blurb in the past and have just been trying to combine it with Lightroom 4 and find it's a nightmare to get to work without a lot of manual intervention.

    Nothing special. just holiday photos, but I like to have them in book format Smile

    Milkbooks, Albelli and Pixum are all great depending on what you want and what you want to spend.

    I won an Albelli book in the Christmas draw and I was very pleased with it. It's so easy to use and I'm in the process of making up another one.

    I've been using myphotobook.co.uk, no problems, easy to use but haven't got anything to compare it to though.

    just playing with albelli and it looks quite straightforward Smile

    Received a book from Albelli about a week ago, having previously put one together in Lightroom through Blurb. I think the final product from Blurb was marginally superior (there were slightly more choices in the final finish for example) but I'm very happy with the Albelli album, which was also cheaper than the Blurb equivalent.

    thanks, Stuart.. that's useful to know.

    I think I'm settled on Albelli this time, will feedback afterwards Smile

    just to update...got my Albelli book back recently...very pleased with the quality of both paper and layout. Went for the soft backed landscape format this time as it was only a short trip.

    The software was easy to manage, albeit not quite as many options as there are with Blurb, but still pleased with the outcome. Smile

    i was looking at albelli last night but how do you estimate a suitable number of images to use . i think it was the large landscape i was looking out, did it have 23 pages or similar. never had a play with one of these before and i dont want to bodge it.

    i was looking to to do the first year of my grandson and need to to space the months out pretty much.

    You can choose how many pages to use in Albelli. Just add more if you need more, or delete any spare pages if you don't want them.

    I bought one of the softcover landscape Medium size. Using 48 images it cost 23 (including postage)
