My-Picture offered to send* me a product to review so I had a look on their website and decided on one of their photo books photo book. A photo of the front cover of the photo book showing Lucas looking up with blonde curly hair and a Mickey Mouse teddy next to him
I have printed photos out since Lucas was born because I don’t want to loose them when I change tablet or phone, I want a physical reminder of him growing up and something to be able to give him when he is older.My parents have always kept photo albums and it is lovely to be able to go back through them and to show Lucas what we were like as children. So although I have always printed photos out and made sure I have dated the backs, I have never got round to putting them in albums. I thought making a photo book would be a fab way of keeping a proper photo time line and something I could order every six or twelve months to keep on top of all the photos. photo book review. A photo of the book opens showing a pink and blue background and several small square boxes of photos


I went onto the website and found out that you can’t make photo books on phones. I do everything on my phone and that’s where all my photos are so it wasn’t the best first impression but they do say that it will soon be available on mobile devices. 

After I emailed myself all the photos I wanted in the book, I started the book on my computer. There are an abundance of backgrounds to choose from and you can add text where you want throughout the book. You can also have a different background for each page so you can really personalise it to how you want. I went for the same background throughout the book. photo book review and giveaway


When uploading photos you can use the photo boxes that are already on the template or you can remove them and add as you want them. You can also have square, circular or rectangle photo boxes. I liked that I could add the photo boxes as I wanted but I do think it could be improved by having guidelines so you know that the pictures are evenly placed. photo book review and giveaway

To be honest, I struggled quite a lot with creating the book and took a lot longer than it had taken in the past on previous websites. However, once the book arrived in the post, I couldn’t have cared less and would most definitely be using them again. The quality of the book and the photo resolution is incredible, far better than I expected and I absolutely love it.
