Loxley Colour is well known for its high-quality printing, but you do pay for that premium finish. The Loxley book is the most expensive in our test, but also the smallest.

To create a book, you need to download software, which is exactly the same as that used by PhotoLeaf.

A number of options are available for your book, including the ability to create an image wrap cover.

The book is hardback, but it doesn’t feature lay-flat binding. The paper is matte and produces excellent colour and fine detail, as we’ve come to expect from Loxley.

If you want to something cheaper, Loxley offers the option of a softback photo book for a fraction of the price.

Verdict

Pros… High quality print and finish, easy-to-use software.
Cons… Doesn’t lay flat, small but costs more than the others.
WE say… Excellent colour reproduction and a professional finish comes at a high price.

Score: 4/5
