The great thing about making your own photo books online is the freedom that you have in the design. Unlike with a photo album or a photo book printed by professional photographers, creating a photo book online lets you play with almost everything about the book to suit your tastes and enhance the presentation. You are not just limited to arranging a certain number of pictures in certain places on the page, with the same exact design replicating itself on every page. No, your major limitation is your imagination.
For example, try turning your photo book into a collage instead of a photo album. Gather an eclectic collection of pictures and images of objects or artwork and then use them as the basis of your photo book. Choose a background that emphasizes this artistic and somewhat chaotic format. Add in captions or cartoon speaking bubbles where you see fit. In short, have fun with the design!
Do not be afraid to add text wherever and whenever you want. Just because they are called photo books does not mean that they are only allowed to contain pictures; it is your book, write in it as much as you want. Put a picture on one page and then use the opposite page to tell the story behind the photo. Put a caption under any and every photo that you want.
Embellishments really tie the book together. Do not hesitate to add clip art or other designs to frame your pictures, add some color, or reinforce the story behind the picture. Add floral designs to pages about a wedding, or baby rattles on the page of a newborn baby. Use this opportunity to make your photo book stand out from the crowd.
Your photo book can be a stodgy old family album, or it can be a work of art that expresses your personality and interests. The choice depends on you and how creative you are. Use the tools at your disposal to have fun and be unique, and you will be rewarded with a photo book that you will truly be satisfied with.
