The Perfect Wedding Gift? A Personalised Photobook!

Will you be attending a wedding this summer? Unsure of what gift to buy? Kitchenware can be so boring and other homeware gets used and thrown away over time. Have you considered buying a gift that will last a lifetime? How about a personalised photo book?

According to an article in Forbes magazine (Millennials Shaking Up the Wedding Industry; August 15, 2018), “Millennial couples are getting married later in life and many also have previously lived together, and their wedding registries are reflecting just that… Many couples already have traditional registry gifts like cookware and linens.”

Wedding photos are probably the most prized and valued photos you will have in your life. The wedding album – like the marriage – is meant to last a lifetime; it will be shown to countless visitors over the years. Over time, and with frequent handling, photo albums tend to deteriorate and lose their appeal.

This is why, for a momentous event such as a wedding, photo books are preferable. A photo book can proudly be placed on a coffee table where the happy couple can show off the images of their special day.

“We spent thousands of rands on our photographer,” says Tamarin (recently married, Johannesburg), “It was one of the bigger expenses for our wedding, but we were happy to part with that money because the memories are as important as the day itself. So my hubby, Collin and I were thrilled to receive a voucher for a personalised photo book as a gift from a very thoughtful friend. As soon as we received our digital images from the photographer, we were eager to create our album. At the same time, we were nervous because neither of us is a computer whizz. But to our relief, it could not have been easier! And it was fun to create.”

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…
