Presto Photo Book Review

I was so happy to review a photo book by Presto Photo Book! I've never made a photo book before. At first I was intimidated. With Isaak getting sick, holidays, and finals coming up I just was overwhelmed with life. Once I did it, it really wasn't that hard. I did spend a lot of time on it though. I can now say I'm hooked. I want to make more!

I made a photo book filled with photos of our trip this summer.


Presto Photo has photo books, cards, calendars, and a bookstore. Their site allows you to choose templates, pick how many pages you want, and there is a lot more customization. You can add and subtract pages, while you're in the process. It took me awhile to upload all the photos I wanted to use. I had so many to go through. Some I wanted lighter, some I wanted darker, so I had to do some editing to do in Photoshop before I even began. I think their site was easy enough to use. It was more on my end with my own photo editing that took time.

Here are some of the many photos I uploaded.

You can see how the photo looks within the page. The image below shows you how you can crop the photo if you choose. The greyed out images on the top bar are the photos that were already picked to use in the book. That way you know that they've been used once already. The side bar shows all your pages. You can go back and change your mind on the photo selection if you choose to do so. I did have a little problem with my images that needed to be flipped. I got them flipped ok, but when I went to crop them in the zoom section, it still showed them sideways, which made it hard to see where to crop them.


This is one of my page layouts.


My book is packed full of high quality photos. I tried putting everything in order. Except for Carhenge. It was one of our first stops, but I wanted more of the nature shots to come first.






I choose to review a photo book for Daddy. It's going to be a Christmas present from me and the boys to him. That was another difficult thing, trying to make my book in private!

I generally have this fear that my codes won't work online. I could just see myself going through all the time of making a book, and then to find out that the code won't work. Guess what? It worked!

I am really impressed with the quality and how amazing my photos looked. I am impressed with how easy the site was to use, their great prices, the shipping was fast, nothing was bent, and it looked great! I highly recommend Presto Photo Book!
