Digital Photo Albums Are More Than Just Scrap Books
Creating albums in which to store your favourite images used to be a question of finding the right scrapbook and sticking the photographs down. Perhaps a few lucky people, with time on their hands and the required craft skills, would be able to create something more substantial, but for the rest of us personalised photo albums were usually fairly shabby objects.
The shift from celluloid to digital photography, however, has completely changed this situation, revolutionising the ways in which images can be stored and enjoyed, and making it possible for absolutely anyone to create photo albums which genuinely do look good enough to be on sale on the shelves on a book shop. Personalised photo albums such as this are a far cry from the scrapbooks mentioned previously, being produced and put together to the highest possible standards. Think of the kind of photo books you may already have around your own home. No matter what the subject – sport, nature, the work of a particular film director – one thing which they’ll all have in common are extremely high production values. In order to fully capture every detail and facet of the images featured, the paper used will be of the highest quality and therefore, rich, thick and glossy. Allied to this will be up to the minute, state of the art printing techniques, meaning that every colour is as vibrant as it ought to be, every shadow as dark and deep as the photographer intended. When you put together photo books online, you’ll be working on something which is produced to the same painstaking standard, the difference being that the images being treated with such care will be images from your very own collection of photographs.
Many people choose to take advantage of this opportunity to produce what might be called an ‘alternative’ wedding album. Whilst a professional photographer will doubtless have produced a volume dedicated to the standard shots – brides family, cutting the cake, signing the register etc – asking your guests to send you the digital photographs they took on the day will enable you to put together a book which captures a different, more intimate and unique portrait of the wedding. Once you’ve selected the images which you feel most accurately and evocatively capture your memories of the day, you merely have to upload them to the website you’re using, and let the software there guide you through the process of designing your book. Whilst this may sound daunting, it’s been kept as simple as possible, with each aspect of the book, from the size and shape to the appearance of every page, being open to your own adaptation. The same is true if you wish to create a baby album, capturing the special moments from your child’s early life and preserving them forever.
Whilst the old fashioned photo album may have been a fairly modest object, there was still no denying the pleasure to be gained from taking it down, looking through the pages and going on a stroll down memory lane. The same is true of bespoke photo books, with the added advantage being that you have a sturdy, well made object of beauty which will serve equally well as a personal keepsake or a stunningly thoughtful gift.
