Frequently asked Photo Book creation questions

What are the different photo book formats?


We have 7 different sizes and cover types there’s a lot to choose from. Ranging from large layflat format photo albums to handy 6x8 photo books. Our photo books can be printed with photographic covers or plain leather & linen covers to suit your taste. For more information, read our photo book comparison review.


How can I add/delete pages from my photo book?


It’s easy to insert or delete pages from your photo book using the +/- menu in the book builder. Pages must be added in multiples of 2. Keep in mind that our photo books require a minimum of 20 pages, so you cannot delete pages if the book has only 20 pages. The maximum number of pages is usually 150, however can vary depending on which photo book you choose. Check each book’s product description for more details.


Can I create my own photo book layouts?


It is possible to create a custom photo book from scratch, but if you are feeling a little daunted about starting from scratch, you can use our pre--made design templates and customize the layouts to suit. From simple to sophisticated and more, our designer layouts help you put the focus on your beautiful photos. With more than 100 pre-designed templates to choose from, it’s easier than ever to create your own photobook or use as the basis for your own one-of-a-kind creation.


Can I share my photo book project between the mobile app and desktop site?


Currently you can’t share projects between the mobile app and desktop site. For now, if you create your photobook on the mobile app, you’ll only be able to view, edit and place your order on the mobile app. The same applies with the desktop site. We are working hard to try and make it possible to share projects between platforms –we’ll be sure to keep you updated.


Where are your books made?


All of our Photo Books are printed in the US, helping to not only secure more jobs but also reduce the carbon footprint and minimize the time taken to deliver your photo book to you.


How thick are your photo book pages?


All our standard photobook pages are 140lb thick, however we also offer an extra-thick premium paper in our layflat photo books. Our layflat pages are extra-thick due to the matte laminate added to each page.


Can I change the book type on an existing photo book project?


You can upgrade your photo book type from one to another of the same size. The option to do that is on the ‘Review page’ in the book builder. Keep in mind, you can only go up in book type quality. For example, you can upgrade a softcover book to a hardcover book, but cannot downgrade a hardcover book to a softcover book, or change the book size. If you choose to upgrade your photo book two versions of the book will be saved, the original book format you chose, and your upgrade book. It may help you to give each project a unique name to avoid confusion later.


Can I add a photo across two pages?


Yes, it is possible to have a photo span across two pages. Our layflat photo books are ideal for this type of spread. The seamless layflat binding of our layflat photo books allows you to spread your photo elegantly across two pages. Although it is possible to span a photo across two pages on all our books, we would always recommend you use layflat photo books for this type of page design and if you choose our premium layflat book format, the pages will be printed on an extra thick luster-silk finish for maximum durability. The binding with other book types will cause the photo to be cropped in the middle of the spread.


Will default text and empty photo slots be printed in my photo book?


All sample text will be printed in your photo book unless you edit or delete the text using the ‘trash’ icon. Any photo slots left empty in your photo book will be printed blank. You can see this in the final ‘Review’ step before you place your order.


I am a photo book novice. Is the photo book creation process easy?


Yes, photo book creation is easy. You can even create photo books in our free app. Our easy-to-use photo book tools provide a straightforward and intuitive way for you to get building with ease. We also have some helpful video tutorials to further guide you if needed.


How long does it take to create & produce a photo book?


Creating a photo book can take minutes if you use our clever ‘Autofill’ feature. This allows your chosen photos to be added chronologically to your book and layouts are altered to suit your photo aspect ratio. You can then spend as much, or as little time as you need to adjust page layouts, zoom in or crop photos, add copy and swap in new backgrounds and embellishments. Once we receive your order, it takes us a few days to make it just right for you. Even though every order is custom, it only takes a few business days to process your order. We’ll send them out for delivery as soon as they’re ready. All you have to do is wait at home for your package to be delivered to your door.

Transform Childhood Artwork Into a Photo Book

Childhood artwork often cycles from fridge frames to closet clutter faster than relatives can say, “Look how tall you’ve grown!” Instead of banishing my cherished drawings and paintings to the attic to collect dust, I compiled my proudest masterpieces into a beautiful photo book that doubles as a delightful coffee table tome and nostalgic keepsake.

Document your family history

Growing up, I can recall an old brown leather suitcase under the bed, teeming with old photos.
