This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.
When your hard disks are blown by thousands of digital photos that you hardly find time and resources on how to keep them tangible, eventually the recollection of the important events attached to your photo database tend to be largely forgotten (in worst case scenario, smart phone get lost or your system crashed!) Although these snapshots are encrypted in your mind, admit it or not, printed photographs inertly served its purpose – – a lasting impression to reminisce your life’s journey. I suggest to start creating your photo book in batches, it simple and economical. Having a photo book done in storybook.ph, you get the desired style and you can saved pictures online as well where you can access them anytime, anywhere.
How to create your photo book
Create an account. This will serve as your log-in to access your photo book project.
Organize your photos. Before starting a project, plan ahead of time your photo book’s theme and concept. You can opt for a travel photo book, your child’s milestone album, your family’s adventure, birthdays, weddings, etc. Stick to your topic to get the best output.
Font type and colors. Set the tone of your composition. Use uniform font type and preferred colors. Most design looks attractive when they adopt the minimalism approach. When I say attractive, the look may vary from the way you perceived your design. From elegant, sophisticated, ultra-modern, to avant-garde. It will depend on your fancy. When I say minimalism, keep in mind to choose color-coordinates, two to three kinds of colors are acceptable, choose font type that are in context to your picture and layout design. For artsy feel, you can break the rules of minimalism but consider the graphics and text compliments each other.
Themes and Layouts. On your dashboard, select the pre-loaded template for theme and layout. You can also design the layout structure on your own, the template is there to guide you. You can always delete the template and replace the photo positioning.
Select the orientation of your layout and number of pages. 40-pages is the recommendable option for a Classic Landscape.
Cliparts. To add animated style, choose from the clipart selection.
Photos. Easy upload by dragging the photos from your folder to the “Photos” tab on the left side of your dashboard.
Backgrounds. Pre-loaded backgrounds, but you can change it with your preferred patterns.
Add Text Block. This is my frequently use tool in making photo book, your design should convey a “message” which include mostly the place, dates events or activities. To add a little drama, add quotes to blend in with your project, after all this is YOUR STORYBOOK!
Order. You can access your online photo book at “SAVED CREATIONS” to view and update your project from time to time. When your project is final and is ready for submission, click on the “ORDER” tab and fill-up the important information pertaining to your order. This includes your complete name, delivery address, contact number, and payment options.
