Why Create Photo Books?

Most of us have hundreds of thousands of digital photos stored on hard drives and DVD’s, but we never do anything with them.  Some of these photos might make it to Facebook or Pintrest and one or two might get a spot on the wall in the passageway, but we don’t print them out and put them in albums anymore.  Photo books are excellent for making the most out of those photographs and preserving those memories for years to come.

When photo books first made their way into the world, they were mostly created by scrapbookers, but these days the photo book is for everyone to document momentous occasions, holidays and show casing portfolios.  Gifting these photo books for birthdays and Christmas have also become more and more popular.

You don’t need to be a designer or creative person to make your own Photobooks.  RapidStudio as with many other companies have designed software that is easy-to-use, and pre-designed templates make the task of creating your own photo book so much less daunting.  Even scrapbookers have moved to creating these photo books digitally as it’s much less cost effective and with the versatility and wide range of design elements available in RapidStudio’s software, you are not limited in the way that you can personalise your photo book.

So, as you can see, you have no excuse any more not to dig in and get your first photo book printed.  Thousands of people are creating their own photo books and getting them printed with RapidStudio.  Why should you feel left out?  With an easy, cost effective and fast way of getting your images printed in a quality hard cover photo book, it’s high time you get on the band wagon.

Creative Ideas for a Post-Holiday Photobook

Here’s how to turn your holiday photos into a creative, must-keep photobook.

Returning home after a holiday can leave you with the post-travel blues. As you wash your bikini, shake the sand out of your sneakers, and try to revive the house plants you haven’t watered for two weeks, you begin to long for the lazy days of a vacation.

But, just because you’re home, doesn’t mean the holiday fun is over. Gather your memories up and create a photobook of your trip. Putting it together is a fun way to keep the holiday feeling alive, plus you can look back on it, to get yourself ready for next December (or April. We’re coming for you, public holidays).
