Best Photo Books

Photo books are a great way to celebrate weddings, birthdays, new babies, wedding anniversaries, graduations, family reunions, and more. For those on a tight wedding budget, photo books make inexpensive photo albums that can save you hundreds of dollars.

Traditional photo albums were popular for many years. They were convenient when developing large rolls of film was a common practice. However, with the invention and popularity of digital cameras, photo books have become a popular substitution to the traditional photo album. They provide a very affordable and impressive method of capturing and organizing your memories.

Most photo book websites allow you to choose from a variety of sizes, covers, templates, and the ability to include captions and comments. Some photo book companies provide very attractive photo book options, while others offer just the bare minimum.

Before making your next photo book purchase, you should consider the following items:

  • Template and Cover Selection. Does the photo book company have attractive covers and available templates that reflect your style?
  • Prices. How do the photo book prices compare among other companies? Does that reflect in the quality of the photo book?
  • Customer Service. If you have a question or concern about your photo book purchase, does the company provide helpful customer service assistance?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best photo book companies available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right photo book to preserve your cherished memories!

Why Have Photo Books Become So Popular?

The simple answer to that question lies outside of the photo book itself: Digital photography and a computer.

The days of coming back from a European vacation with a hundred rolls of exposed film and no way of knowing if you got a good photograph of anything is over. After spending many dollars on developing the film, it was normal to fill several traditional photo albums with shots of dubious quality, a time consuming and expensive activity. Few people, aside from yourself, want to see a dozen shots of the Eiffel Tower from different angles. But they will be happy to look at one great photo of the icon on the Seine, especially if it was taken by you. If it is context with other spectacular photos of the City of Light, well, what's not to like?

Digital cameras allow you to click away until you get the image you want. If you know how to use the digital camera, then loading the photographs into your computer is probably easy for you, as well. The final step, creating a photo book, using the best of your best photographs, rather than oodles of ordinary ones, is a simple effort for anyone.

Therein lies the reason for photo books' rising popularity. The books, created from your skill, your eye for composition and your flair for storytelling, provide a way for you, and others, to truly enjoy the event you have experienced. And with the help of photo book companies, you can do it without too great an effort nor too great an expense.

Photo books are a perfect memento for a wealth of occasions, especially since you can determine exactly how many photo book copies you need for yourself and to share.

It goes without saying, the bride and groom will treasure their wedding photo album, but the parents of the couple, would no doubt enjoy a photo book of the event, perhaps with more candid, family shots included than would be in the formal arrangements. A photo book of Mom and Dad's Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary party, with Grandma and Grandad taking a turn on the dance floor, would probably be a best seller if it were available to the whole clan, and with a photo book, it can be.

Photo book services allow a digital photographer to easily manipulate, crop and resize images. They also provide easy access to a wide range of other variables, from backgrounds to photo placement and fonts for captions.

Photo book cover options include spiral bound, soft covers, hard backs, leather bound and dust jackets. Photo books can be created in several different sizes, from 4x6 inches to portfolio sized perfect for display on the coffee table. Choices include photo books which either have page curl and those with lay flat features.

The result is a totally customizable photo book of personal memories.
