Thanks to the flexibility of digital photography, it is now possible to use your own images to create a dazzling range of photo gifts, from small, inexpensive items like fridge magnets to a luxurious object such as a bespoke photo book.
The fact that digital cameras are so easy to use and the images so simple to store has meant that people now take a far greater number of photographs than they used to. An event such as a family party, or even a fortnight holidaying abroad, can now be captured in all its’ glory, and going through the images afterwards, selecting which ones to keep and which to discard, is simplicity itself. The one drawback of this huge increase in the number of images which people feel able to capture lies in the problems which can sometimes arise around issues of storage. Even when the photographs are only digital in nature, rather than actually being printed out, they can often tend to end up being scattered around a wide range of different places – some will be in various folders on your computer, others saved onto a memory card and still more kept on different devices such as mobile phones and hand held tablets. An even bigger problem may arise when you choose to print actual hard copies of your favourite photographs. Although the actual printing process is now much simpler than it used to be, finding a place to keep the pictures which is safe and easily accessible will often prove difficult, with the old fashioned option of sticking them into photo albums being less than satisfactory.
The use of up to the minute technology, however, means that your most treasured images can now be kept in perfect condition and shown off to the very best effect on the pages of a one off personalised photo book. The choice of images to include in your volume will be entirely yours, whether you choose to gather images which are linked by subject or theme, or opt instead for just bringing together a miscellaneous collection of your favourite photographs from through the years. For many people, the ease with which photo books can be created offers the perfect opportunity to produce a volume celebrating the first year of their child’s life, or chronicling an event such as a wedding in a manner much more personally meaningful than an album produced by a photographer.
The process of creating a book has been made incredibly simple – having chosen your images, simply upload them to the relevant site and then use software which has been developed with ease of use at the forefront of its’ features. Step by step you’ll be guided through choices such as the size, shape and length of the book, the layout of each individual page, the nature and design of the front and back cover and whether you wish to include any text. Once you’ve done this, your book will be printed to the highest standard imaginable, featuring thick glossy pages and pin sharp printing techniques. Whether intended as personal mementoes or stunning photo gifts, bespoke books like this will delight for many years after they’ve been created.
