@PrestoPhoto #book

I finally spent a day, ok maybe two days making a book of our vacation last year to Minnesota. Whenever I've made photo books it takes way longer to make than I think it's going to take. 

Mistakes Made:

Don't upload all your photos, if you have tons of photos. It took forever to upload them. I didn't want to stop the upload process in the middle, in fear I'd only get some of them to upload. Then it took a long time go through them all on Presto Photo's site.

I also had Presto Photo put my images in the book. Each single image went on a page, but they have a lot of different compositions to choose from. I had to delete a lot of pages.

Typically one wouldn't have these problems. I just happened to have tons of pictures!

Don't do what I did... Select your photos outside of Presto Photo, then upload your selected shots.

Presto Photo Has Quality!

I've had two books made by Presto Photo. They do not disappoint. Other companies have gone down hill in my opinion, with the printing process. Not Presto Photo.

They make, and ship their books really fast too!

Where to Get Presto Photo Books:

You can get them here:

Oh so Flat

This book lays nice and flat. It makes it easy to keep it on a bookshelf because it doesn't take up a lot of room.


The cost varies. The books start at $29.99, but it depends on how may pages you opt to make.

Where would you go on a trip this year, if COVID wasn't a thing? 

We talked about going to Western Nebraska. It was so pretty when we went. It's very remote. I still doing know that it's safe to travel anywhere right about now. Maybe it won't be safe, for quite some time.

Disclaimer: I got this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I was not told what to say, all opinions were my own.

I love photo books! Yours turned out great. I had one made at the local supermarket and also made the mistake of uploading too many photos. It's a real PIA when you do that. However, your book looks so professional. The pictures are nice and crisp and very artsy!

Yes, the quality at my most favorite one that I have been using for years has gone way down in the last few years (and on prints too). I am happy to see a suggestion for where to make my books elsewhere. Your pictures are great!! If they have an app, maybe the pictures load faster and then you can go to the pc to finish?

I don't think my comment I left a few days ago went through. I love your photo book. The pictures are super crisp and very artsy, perfect for display in this book. I may have to make one from our travel adventures too!
