Has anyone used the services of a company producing digital photo albums, you upload the images and they send back a finished album. Any help, advice would be welcome.

I used Photobox, and at the third attempt the quality was good, but it did take them 3 goes. Having said that they never argued about doing it till they got it wrong.

Problems, miss-registration of colour and black ink's.
Colour fade out half way down some photo's.

Are you talking about the coffee table style books, that are generally not too expensive, or do you mean the likes of proper wedding album?

I used the Cherish (39.99) one's and was very dissapointed at the quality. They are not good enough quality to be used as a wedding album. In fairmess to Cherish when I told them I was dissapointed with it the reproduction they re-did the album with no quibles. My disspointment was with the quality of paper and the covers.

I actually got a really cheap one from Tesco for a stocking filler over Christmas and was surprised at the quality of it. I suppose it depends on what you are looking for. The book itself isn't anything special but the picture quality and paper was good.

Thanks everyone. For Magicboy, I think somewhere in the middle between the two would be good. It does seem that peoples experiences vary so I want to make sure before I commit.

I've had very good Photobox experiences, the one blip was quickly put right. The best way of working is to do your own page layout then upload that rather than use their layouts. Excellent value for money and even better when they're on special offer as seems to happen quite frequently.
