Want to Know How to Amaze Family & Friends with Your Photo Book?

Do you know how to make the most of your digital vacation photos or all those pictures of your adorable grandkids?  If not, please read on as our friends at Visual Steps have the perfect solution for us all. 

What to do with your digital vacation photos?

 When you come home from a memorable vacation, you might have taken lots of pictures. Nowadays, taking pictures is a piece of cake. Apart from the digital camera, it is also possible to use a tablet or telephone with a built-in camera. As a result you might have hundreds, if not thousands, of digital pictures stored on the computer. It’s such a waste to just let those photos stay there and do nothing with them. Why not create a custom photo book? It’s much easier than you think!

Use your photos to create a photo book

Example_photobook_2With free photo book software you can create a beautifully crafted book that shows off your pictures and preserves the memories of a recent trip, a family event, or another important occasion. This is a fun way of showing your photos to others. The photo book provider will ensure that your book is carefully printed in bookstore quality. Mixbook, Picaboo, and Shutterfly are such photo book providers, for example.

You can select your most beautiful and precious vacation photos and use them to create your own unique and personal photo book. You can combine photos with your own story and embellish the pages with background colors or other images. You can elaborate as much as you want: add a short caption to go with the photos, or a longer text describing a key event. When your photo book is printed you can show your family and friends the result.

Themes for a photo book

A photo book of your vacation photos is just one example. You can also compile a photo book of your son’s or daughter’s wedding, a family history, a travelogue, a chronicle of a baby’s first year or even an autobiography. You can also create a photo book as a present for a loved one!

If you would like to create a photo book but don’t know where to start? Then the computer book Creating a Photo Book for SENIORS will help you on your way. This book teaches you how to use free photo book software, such as Mixbook, to create a photo book. This book also offers many original ideas and practical tips for composing text and setting up your pages. Plus you will learn how to transfer photos from a digital camera to a computer and how to scan photos and other documents.
