    Best photo book review: 03 Albelli

    28x21cm, 28pp    £35.82, $56
    You can create an Albelli book either online or via a downloadable program. The download offers more features and a maximum of 120 pages, as opposed to the online version’s maximum of 70.

    There’s plenty of flexibility, plus a range of templates to get you started. If you want to create your own layouts, onscreen guides enable you to ensure that images and text boxes are perfectly aligned.

    We chose glossy paper for our book, which produced some excellent colours and good detail reproduction. You may prefer matte paper.

    Albelli also offers the option to have your book lay flat – you will need to pay extra for this feature, but it’s a great way to display your photographs.

    Verdict

    Pros… Print quality is good. Easy-to-use software.
    Cons… You need to pay extra for a photo cover or lay-flat binding.
    WE say… A decent compromise between book size, print quality and easy-to-use software.

    Score: 4/5
