Tips for designing a personalised photobook



There are so many advantages to having a personalised photobook! And, the amazing thing is that you can cherish so many good memories without having to spend a fortune. DIY photobooks are great, which is why we provide user-friendly software that you can use to customise your own.
Here are a few easy ways to create your very own personalised photobook:
  • Have an Idea of What You Want for Your Photobook
    Do you know what you want your photobook to look like? Will it be based on a special event or occasion (Christmas, holiday travels, family time or wedding)?
  • Choose Your Photos
    Once you’ve decided on your occasion, it’s time to pick your photos for this photobook. Choose photos that have good lighting, aren’t blurry, and capture memories that you want to share.
  • Choose your software
    Free photobook software allows you to create your personalised photobook without having to buy a special software package. Even when you’re on a tight budget, you can still make your photobook.
  • Select a Theme
    The theme can be based on what you’ve chosen initially. In other words, is your photobook based on adventure, your wedding, your new baby or travel? This will set the tone for the theme.
  • Make The Cover Unique
    Since it’s still a book, it’s only natural that your personalised photobook has a cover of its own. Use an image that captures the theme of the photobook so people know what to expect when they open it.

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?
