Creating a photobook using the YoPhoto downloadable creator is quick and easy, with plenty of templates to get you started.

Creating your own is also fairly straightforward. There are a few size options available, with YoPhoto offering excellent value for money.

The paper is 170gsm gloss paper, on which images are reproduced excellently with vibrant and natural colours, along with nice, sharp detail.

Delivery time is second to none – we received our book just one day after we’d ordered it, which was extremely impressive.

One niggle is with the spine, which doesn’t have the professional finish of the other books on test. Lay-flat binding is also unavailable.
