The advantages of an A4 portrait photo album

Few personalised photo albums offer a greater mix of features than an A4 portrait softcover photo album. What defines this album type is a practical A4 size protected by a light and flexible softcover. Inside the case, a maximum of 66 pages made of high-quality photo paper is waiting to be designed and personalised. With photographic sheets (Fuji photo paper), the pictures are actually developed - instead of printed - which gives an A4 photo album a more genuine look. Indeed, real photographs provide better image resolution and colour depth than digitally printed sheets.

As a result, the pictures contained in your personalised photo album will tend to age in a nicer way and show a nostalgic look. The album pages are then assembled with a layflat binding, which is quite helpful if you don't only want to show portrait-oriented pictures, but also landscape and big panoramic images.

As you might find surprising, A4 photo albums with a softcover are faster to produce than most albums (at myphotobook UK we call them "quick print photo albums"). For this reason, they turn out to be cheaper: for instance, an 18-page photo album can be ordered for an inexpensive price of £22.99.

However, this same combination of features can be also found on myphotobook's online shop as:

  • A5 landscape photo albums,
  • A6 landscape photo albums,
  • 20x20 square photo albums.

Generally speaking, the choice of the photo album format depends on the intended use and picture size.

Make your own A4 personalised photo album

Making your own photo album is a lot about finding a line or a story to organise a series of photos. On each album page there is space for 2 to 4 pictures, but they can be also be presented in an original photo collage. For your very best captures you may want to reserve a whole page.

myphotobook's editor lets you make your own album online or directly on a computer (free download). A huge gallery of cliparts, backgrounds and templates support you in making the best out of your photographic memories.

A4 photo albums with a softcover and portrait orientation are often used to create:

  • wedding photo albums,
  • baby photo albums,
  • holiday and travel photo albums,
  • christening photo albums,
  • children's photo albums

Use them to build a memory picture book that is visible for everyone on your shelves at home. In cosy winter days, you can sit down to admire them and recall joyful spring and summer times. With a personalised photo album you can also reflect how time changes things, people and places.  "You're not as young as you used to be. But you're not as old as you're going to be" goes the Irish saying.

With the power of these beautiful memories, you can create a personalised gift and ship it to your parents, brothers & sisters or friends. If you purchase several copies of the same album, you benefit from paying the delivery fee just once.

What makes lay flat photo books so practical?

Both in photo books and photo albums, a lay flat binding  allows a better use of the available space. Lay flat photo books hide the fracture between the pages of a same spread, which means that the printing space is doubled on a horizontal axe. Hence, lay flat photo albums allow the display of big panoramic images over a bigger page surface. In this way, it is possible to combine portrait-oriented and landscape images in the same photo album.

Matte vs glossy photo paper

If photographs already offer a greater quality than pictures printed on inkjet paper sheets, there is still one higher level to go: that is adding a high-gloss finish to the pages and book cover. Glossy photo paper works best for darker pictures and is normally used for important occassions, as in wedding photo albums or christening photo books. In contrast, matte paper is better to avoid fingerprints.

So now you've read everything you need to know to select the right combination for your order of a photo album. Open our online photo album maker and start creating your project with a personal computer, laptop or tablet. Remember that it is also possible to download the software and use it offline. If any of the pictures you upload to our platform don't have enough image resolution, the photo album maker will automatically warn you and ask you to replace or resize them. We warmly recommend to check the final result in preview mode.

Order photo albums online

Add the album to the shopping basket, fill in your details and select the way you want to pay. A confirmation message will be then sent to your e-mail. Within a few days, your online order of a personalised photo album with an A4 portrait size, a softcover, a lay-flat binding and photographic paper sheets will arrive safely at home.

How about making photo albums for next Christmas? Each album can be original and personalised with different pictures. Instead of queuing up at full stores, the order is comfortably placed online and the good is directly delivered at your address. Especially before the Christmas season, it is important to order in advance and verify the expected delivery dates, to ensure that the present arrives on time.
