In Topic: Help! overwhelmed by vacation photos

09 July 2016 - 01:51 AM

300 photos sounds about right to create a holiday photo book. I have made half a dozen books through a company here in the UK and have been thrilled with the results. My advice is:

 

don't make your pages too cluttered

stick to a neutral and limited palette when choosing papers embellishments etc

don't be afraid to use not such good photos or parts of photos to tell your story. Your best photos can always have a page to themselves

include journalling

be consistent with font size, shadow types etc

ensure there is a wide margin all the way around the pages you create to ensure that nothing is lost if the page "slips" in printing. 

check everything thoroughly before you send it off to print - typos and silly mistakes seem twice as bad when fixed for all time in print

 

Good luck

I like WREATH best. Photo lacks a contrast colour to my eye. Good luck with choosing!

Sorry I wasn't able to complete the world tour. Technical issues in my cabin kept me below decks for the last few days.  Well done everyone who completed.

This Captain! What a nightmare! When I get home I'll make sure he never drives a boat again :D

 

Trees are something we have plenty of round here - should be able to find something.

I heard a rumor that the captain is English. In that case, shouldn't she know better? :lol:

 

Oh well, at least the Amazon is tropical. Some of the trees will remind me of Florida.

 

Definitely don't trust an English Captain!
