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! But, you don’t just want to slap all your pics together in one book. Instead, make themed photobooks you can collect over time.

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.



Romance Books

A great Valentine's or anniversary gift would be a photobook of the story of your relationship. Use special quotes about love, memories, inside jokes and candid photos from all the years you’ve spent together.



Gap-year Photobook

Know someone who is about to embark on a gap-year? Give them a photobook about all the adventures they will have! Use images of the places they will go (you can find these online if you’ve never been), add in quotes about travel, and tips on what to see, eat, visit and do in each country.

Street Style

Love fashion? Snap a few pics of the best dressed people you see walking down the street, and keep them all to document looks through the years. You could also ask them a few questions and create your own Humans of New York-style book.



Selfie!

Take a leaf out of Kim Kardashian’s book, and make your own selfie book. All those great pics of you shouldn’t go to waste – imagine looking back on them in years to come…



Road-trip

Collect all the best photos from your road-trip, and make one big road-trip album. Don’t forget to include the songs you listened to on your road-trip playlist.



Colour Code

Arrange your photos by colour. All pics with the same colour pallet can be kept together, and collected into one photobook, which makes for a truly special, creative look.


Christmas Memories


Make a book of the last ten years' worth of Christmas photos – the tree, the gifts, the family and the dinner table – along with the year, and a little story about the day. You can update this every few years!

Bride to be

Bridesmaid? Make a pre-wedding photobook for the bride, filled with pics of the wedding planning, dress fittings, champagne celebrations and the bachelorette party. Give it to her as a special treat the night before the wedding.

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 …
