    Five things to look for in a photo book

    Five things to look for in a photo book

    01 Variety of paper types
    A good publisher will give you a number of different options on paper stock, quality, and price.

    02 Delivery options
    If you need a book quickly, say for a birthday gift, look for companies which offer express production and delivery. You may need to pay extra for a speedier service, though.

    03 Quick design
    Ready-made templates make it easy if you want to put something together quickly. The best publishers will allow you to make tweaks to the template as necessary.

    04 Ease-of-use
    Can you add your own text boxes, picture layouts and quickly duplicate page layouts? Making a photobook should be a pleasure, not a hassle.

    05 Size
    Think about the best size to display your images – generally speaking, A4 should be the minimum size you choose if you’re displaying photography work.
