How to Make Your Own Coffee Table Photo Book

How to make your own Coffee Table Photo Book - RapidStudio
Coffee Table Photo Book
Are you looking for a way to show off some of your happiest memories? A coffee table photo book is a great way to display everything from photos and illustrations to captions and artwork to people visiting your home.

Where to Start?

  1. Your first step is to think about the stories you want to tell. Save all the pictures, illustrations and artwork that you want to include in your coffee table photo book in a folder. Consider the text that you want to accompany each story and draft the text.

    If you are an interior designer or architect, or if you work in an industry where showing potential clients your past work is a must, then a coffee table photo book will work well in your company’s reception area as well. Not only does it create a visual feast that serves to inspire clients, but it can boost sales and lead to improved brand recognition.

  2. The next step is to lay out your pictures, artwork, and text on pages. There are many online photo book tools available to help you do this. Just start your photo book design on our website and we will guide you through the process.

  3. Now you will need to choose the specs of your coffee table photo book. We recommend that the binding be ‘case bound’ (which is a hardcover book) with gloss lamination on the exterior cover and a gloss finish on the interior pages. 

  4. Lastly, choose the number of prints that you want. Remember that coffee table photo books are a great gift for your father on Father’s Day, and the perfect present for grandma on her birthday. If your coffee table photo book is about a specific holiday, be sure to order one for your favourite travel buddy, too.

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 …

Paint By Shadow Canvases:
RapidStudio and CraftRoutes got back in touch with their inner artist in Pretoria last week.
CraftRoutes, a specialist arts and crafts shop in Pretoria, invited Paint-by-Shadow to be the flagship product at their annual exhibition in the Kolonnade Shopping Mall, Montana Park.


Our largest size (80 x 120 cm) canvas was placed on the stand and throughout the 6 days of exhibiting, the canvas was painted by myself (product developer), Sue Peddle (owner of CraftRoutes) and all the sales staff from the store.


The King Protea image was developed for Sue and her shop, which reflected the mood of Heritage Day.  This image also show cases the Proudly South African product Paint-by-Shadow truly is.




Have you always wanted to be an artist but thought it was too difficult?
We have developed an innovative new product called “Paint-by-Shadow. Paint-by-Shadow is a great starter product that takes any of the initial apprehension and unknowns out of the painting process.
