What do you do with yours?

I love taking photos and I love looking at photos too, doesn't matter whether they are mine or someone else's.  I used to have a film camera before everything went digital and I would always fill an album with photos from holidays and trips away.  Since I've had a digital camera I don't get many prints done.  
I took a couple of short photography courses a few years ago and really enjoyed it, we used to be given a topic and had to get photos printed to take in the next week, I remember the whole discussion of where to get your prints done and how the machines in the high street shops are just configured to print everyone's photos the same, whereas if you take them to a professional printer they will look at your photos and adjust the machine to get you the best print.

I tested this out once, getting two identical photos, one printed at a professional printers and one at a high street chain.   The difference was amazing, the colour on the high street shop photo was just awful, and the top of the photo had been cut off too.  The one from the professional place was exactly how it was on my screen.  I would have probably been happy with the shop one if I had not seen how it should have looked.  Just shows.

It made me wary of getting prints, so most of my photos are on my laptop

The difference in price is not that much more from a professional printer really and for special occasions I would still send my photos to them rather than a high street chain, but I have as many photos that have been taken with my phone as with my camera so at Christmas I downloaded an app called FreePrints.  
Every month you get 45 free 6x4 prints and only pay for postage.  I tried them out in January and was quite happy with the results so I thought I would tell you about it in case it's something you haven't heard of it.

I've had this album for about two years intending to get photos printed, it's similar to a Project Life album, a four ring binder basically.  The idea is that it's a scrapbook project without the need to buy all the scrapbooking paraphernalia but I just can't get on with it so at the weekend i'm off to buy a good old fashioned photo album, lol

There is also a FreePrints Photosbooks, app.  With this you get a free 8 x 6, twenty page photobook and again you only pay for postage.  You have the option to add more pages for a small extra charge and you can opt to buy a larger book if you wanted too.

I ordered one last Friday, I made it for Oliver of when we took him on holiday to Padstow in 2017 and it arrived in the post yesterday.

There are a good selection of covers to choose from
(sorry, bad glare on this photos!)

There's a choice of layout's and you can choose to have full page

You could add a photo on the back cover too, I added a photo of Padstow harbour

I'm really happy with how it came out :-)  A couple of the photos are a bit too warm but on the whole I'm very pleased, and Oliver has something to remember our holiday.  He was thrilled to bits when I gave it to him yesterday :-)

I'll definitely be doing another one in February :-)

I added more pages to my book but when I do another one I'll make better use of the layout options to get more photos in.

We made a photo book for grandson Logan after his 1st visit without mum and dad, I also made one for our daughters wedding. I have 9 books from my blog, one for each year, so I love these books. We have so many photos, I do have loads on the stair wall.

A lovely keepsake for Oliver of your seaside adventure.
We have lots of photographs, we print a few that we like but lots are on the computer.

A lovely idea, no wonder Oliver loved it.

All the best Jan

I've never done a photo book but they're lovely for special occasions or to remember something special, like Oliver's holiday away with you. That's really lovely as a keepsake for him. I do like the pages with the larger photos. That's a good deal you've found, I did see it when I was looking to have some photos printed off recently but I wouldn't print that many out each month. I usually find a 'pay postage only' deal when I get my photos printed so it never works out very expensive anyway. That deal would be really good for anyone who prints lots of photos out though.

I have not made up a photo album in many, many years now. We have most of our photos on our computer.

Our oldest son makes a photo book of all his trips. They are so lovely to look at.

He made us one for our trip to Cuba many years ago.

God bless.
