Digitise Your Old Family Photos and Create a Beautiful Coffee Table Photobook

Ever heard people say that if their house was on fire and they could save only one possession, they would grab their photo albums? A family’s photo albums hold their combined memories of all their best times. As such, they should be looked after.

Old fashioned albums lose their stickiness and colour over time. The photos themselves start to dull and fade. With all the handling of people browsing them, they start to fall apart and look shabby. This is why coffee table photobooks are the answer.

Showing your family memories in a professionally bound photobook on your coffee table or bookshelf will take the pics from drab to fab. What’s great is that you can create separate volumes for each chapter of your lives: ‘Mauritius Holiday 2017’ or ‘The Kids as Babies’, etc. Each book can have its own look and feel to go with the theme or event it contains.

It Is So Easy



Today’s software and photobook websites are designed to be user-friendly for people regardless of their level of (or lack of!) tech savvy. At RapidStudio, we have our very own online design tool that will enable you to create your own beautiful photobooks. The uploading and design process is fast and fun. So, the whole family can participate, and the result is something you can all be proud of and enjoy time and again as you relive those old memories.

Not only will you have a hard copy of your photos in the most professional presentation, but the photos can also be backed up digitally so that you will always know where to find them in case of emergency.

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 …

Tip 8: Choosing the right internet acecss for your lifestyle

Choosing the right internet access for your lifestyle

With so many ISPs out there these days, it's difficult to decide what type of access you need and which product will be cost effective and best suit your needs.
In the by-gone days of dial up our internet usage was measured by the amount of time we spent connected, and we all quickly got into the habit of plugging in the modem, quickly connecting, checking our mail doing what little surfing we needed and then before we ran up a huge bill, disconnected and unplugged the modem again - just to make sure.

Now days with the advent of broadband, we're no longer charged by the amount of time we spend online, but instead by the amount of data that we use up. while it's true that the longer you're connected the more likely you are to use more data, most people find it convenient and not too expensive to be connected all the time.

Being connected all the time does however come with some dangers. the chances of picking up unwa…
