Here are three of our favorites. Like iPhoto, Blurb lets you design the book on your Mac and then upload the finished project. Blurb then binds your project as an 8-byinch hardcover book with a custom dust jacket. Blurb includes page designs for a wide variety of books, including cookbooks, baby books, and Weblog anthologies. You can customize each page by dragging images from the My Pictures pane into placeholder boxes on the page, and then filling out the blocks of text.
BookSmart offers some nice features that iPhoto and Aperture lack. For example, you can choose from an extensive library of photo borders. And like iPhoto and Aperture, BookSmart limits you to a preselected group of fonts. In addition to ordering a copy for yourself, you can give friends and family the option of buying your book.
Pros: Good variety of template designs; drag-and-drop interface; customizable dust jacket; other people can purchase your book. Cons: Offers only one book size. Contact: Blurb Tip: Before you rush your book out to friends and relatives, order a single copy for yourself to proof the contents and image quality. It can also help you make a bit of a profit from your book by selling it online.
Like iPhoto and Blurb, Lulu lets you upload books for printing. Instead, Lulu prints books from standard PDF files. Lulu does offer Web-based tools for designing a photo book, but I recommend skipping them.
The site can be a bit glitchy with Safari, so I recommend using Firefox to upload and purchase your book. Lulu offers a wide variety of book sizes and binding options. Softcover books come in nine sizes, including standards such as 6 by 9 inches and 8. Hardcover books can have an image printed directly onto a glossy cover, or can come wrapped in a full-color dust jacket. Lulu also gives you the option of selling an electronic copy of your book, which other people can download as a PDF file.
Pros: Good variety of book sizes; affordable prices; distribution through online bookstores. Cons: Limited design tools included. If you have little or no experience, find a book that you like and use it as a model. They also give you the freedom to reprint images until you get them exactly the way you want. Once you have a stack of pages printed, you need a way to bind them.
To bind a book, first choose which hardback cover you want to use. Covers, sold separately, come in a variety of colors and sizes. You can choose from linen, faux suede, or leather finishes. Some covers even offer a cut-out window so you can see a portion of your first page. When you order, make sure to select a spine that is big enough to hold all of your pages. Unibind offers guidelines for determining how many pages will fit in a spine. To make the most of your page count, use double-sided photo paper.
Each cover has a special type of glue in the spine. To make a book, you print your pages, stack them inside the cover, and then place the book, spine-down, in the PhotoBook Creator. In about a minute, the machine melts the glue, and your book is bound. The result is an attractive, sturdy, and professional-looking book. Later, if you decide you want to add new pages, or if you want to rearrange the photos— to remove snapshots of your ex, for example—you place a finished book in the machine to unbind it, change the contents, and then rebind it.
Ideal For: Photographers who want to produce books with photo-quality images. Pros: Gives you complete control of print quality and paper selection. Cons: You must have your own printer. Tip: When designing your pages, remember to leave some room along the left side for the binding.
If you print on thick paper, also consider scoring along the front left margin with the back of a table knife to make the bound pages easier to turn.
