Making the most of your photos
Long gone are the days when photos were printed and popped in albums. Now that the world has gone digital, they simply languish on phones and computers. It’s time to do something with those wonderful images you’ve captured. YOURLifeChoices has some tips to help you make the most of your photos.
If you have ever looked with envy at some the professionally produced photobooks which grace coffee tables, you can now produce your own. There are many websites which allow you to upload your photos, add captions and borders and then print professional-looking photobooks to give as a gift, or simply enjoy for yourself. While it’s usually free to play around with the software, there is a cost involved in having the books printed. Want to give it a go? Try these websites.
Choose your cover, number of pages and design of your photobook. Not the cheapest option on the market, but a good, comprehensive site.
