Digital photos are nice, but it is just not the same as being able to hold a photograph in your hands. My daughter recently traveled to Anaheim with her Volleyball team, and we decided to make a photo book for all her teammates after the trip. We included group shots, and photo spread action shots that spanned 2 pages, and tried to pick photos with everyone in them.
My favorite place to make photo books is blurb.com. I have order many books from blurb.com, but because we didn't have time to wait for shipping to have this book ready in time for the Volleyball banquet, I also bought the book in .pdf for around $5 and printed them up ourselves. The teammates and parents seemed to love them and we had many questions on how we made them.
At blurb.com, you download an application called Booksmart, which guides you into making your book. You upload the photos you want to use to the program and can drop them into standard layouts and photo spreads, or you can customize your own layouts. I find it easy to use.
We are still waiting on our books we made for our family with photos from our trip. Can't wait to receive them!
