Tips and Tricks for Getting Started :
Choosing Photos - To get started on making your photo book you need to first choose your photos. You need at least 30 photos to make a really great photo book. You can add as many photos to your book as you like, depending on the size of the book you wish to print.
Preparing Photos - If you are creating a photo book from your computer, we suggest that you create a folder with all the photos for the photo book kept in that folder. Number the image files and store them in sequential order, that way when they are added to your photo book they will be in the correct order.
Photo Quality - You need a minimum file size of 300 dpi per image, however if you are printing from social media platforms we suggest that you use images that will be printed as a small detail on the page, about half the size of the palm of your hand.
