RapidStudio designs your photobook for you

We get a lot of people asking us the same question time and time again: "Can I give you my pictures and then you design the photobook for me?"

And the answer?  "We've already done it." :)

Our designers are constantly creating new photobook designs which we publish on our website (or on the disk) as Sample Albums. These templates are complete photo books where the design has been applied from the cover right through to the very last page.  So, all you really need to do, is to choose your photographs and decide on which pages you want to place them.

Now why would you want to pay someone else to design or lay out your photo book if you can do it yourself for absolutely nothing.

All the sample albums displayed on this blog (any many many more) can be downloaded from our website on the "Free Software" page.

How to apply a template that we have designed for you:
  • Firstly you need to have the RapidStudio Album Maker software installed on your machine.  You can download it from our website for free, or you can purchase a CD for R49 (includes a DVD with extra content such as sample albums, backgrounds and clip arts).
  • Now download one of the templates from our website and run the update.
  • When the update is done, open RapidStudio and click on "New Album".
  • Go through the steps of choosing the size / type of photo book you want to create and choosing your pictures.
  • When you get to step 4, choose "Sample album design" on the left.
  • Now all the sample albums on your machine will be displayed on the right hand side (including the newly installed template).  Simply choose the one you would like to use and click the "next" arrow.
Choose a template
  • A perfectly designed photo book will open up on your screen and all that's left for you to do is to place your pictures on the pages and hit the order button.

And yes... it really is that easy!

10 Unique Photobook Ideas

Stuck for photobook inspiration? Try one of these creative, themed books.

A photobook is the perfect way to print and display your memories, so you and your family can look back on them (without having to huddle around a computer). They also make for special gifts!

We’ve compiled a list of unique photobook ideas that will inspire your next photobook project – whether you’re creating a wedding album, holiday album, or summer album!

Seasonal Books Create a photobook after each season with all the pics from the last three months. Summer, autumn, winter and spring books will give them a clear theme – and help ensure a colour pallet throughout the pics.


The Fur Family Photobooks aren’t just for people! Create a book that’s all about your pets, or make a book for a friend that features their furry buddy.

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

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).

Create a #Hashtag If you went on holiday with a few friends or family members, make sure that everyone uploads their pics to Instagram using a unique hashtag you create, like #SmithFamilyHoliday2017. Check it doesn’t exist already! That way, when you create the photobook, you can search for the hashtag, and find every photo that was taken. An ea…
