Get a personalised photo album with photographic paper sheets

When the highest visual quality is required for making a personalised photo album, only one procedure can guarantee you real success - that is photo developing. Real photographs provide a greater level of contrast and colour depth than digitally printed images (since in the latter the printing grid is sometimes visible). For this reason, myphotobook UK produces its so-called "real-photo books" with Fuji premium photographic paper sheets, making sure that your personalised photo album is built with the best materials and reprographic techniques.

Furthermore, choosing an A4 photo album size will make the photobook more accessible, easier to handle and also to carry anywhere you need. It is no wonder that DIN A4 albums (8.27 × 11.69) has become the most popular photo album size worlwide!

To complete the features of your personalised photo album, you have a choice of portrait and landscape oriented albums. An A4 portrait photo album will highlight people's face expressions and body language, prioritising the details over the bigger picture and overall composition.

Obtain a vintage flair through photo processing

Ever since the apparition of the first daguerreotype (in 1839, by Louis Daguerre) photo processing - also known as photo developing - has brightened up our lives with captures of memorable moments and different life phases: we can see what we looked like when we were babies, as children, teenagers or young adults; but personalised photo albums also remind us of important people who have left us (e.g. grandparents, uncles and aunts), whether if we have met them personally or not - like our ancestors who are often depicted in the classical family album. Photo processing has allowed us to travel back in time, become aware of our roots and see how our family has changed throughout the different phases in History.

Nowadays, digital printing has certainly made photo printing faster and cheaper, but the special flair and the original quality of photographs have still survived in real-photo albums. Furthermore, online album design tools have made it possible to keep that retro look and top-notch quality without having to stick on every picture separately. Instead, the images are inserted online and then transferred onto photographics sheets. Besides, with photo developing many lower-resolution pictures can also turn out well.

Create an A4 photo album online

Modern times demand greater accessibility and user-friendliness for our customers. For this reason, myphotobook UK has evolved to allow you create a photo album online, regardless of where you are: at the dentist, in the subway or in your coffee-break. Design an A4 photo album on your smartphone, tablet or laptop and save the changes in your personal session. Please note that your personal account will need to be created previously, before you actually start to design the album.

Best practices for making a personalised album with real photos

Using real photographic paper sheets in an A4 personalised photo album enables space for experimenting with visual effects in a variety of combinations. For example, you can leave the pages matte or add a high-gloss film to make the pictures more luminous and impressive. Generally speaking, glossy photo albums work best with light tones and images with a lot of light. Not only the inner pages, but also the A4-size cover can be made glossy.

Alternatively, you can try out different filters, for instance "sepia", "black and white", "stylished green" or "moody". If each picture was taken at a different stage, our intuitive album maker will automatically recognise the different dates and offer you to organise them in a chronological order.

You may also want to consider leaving some space between the picture border and the edges of the page, instead of displaying the photographs over the complete A4 photo album surface. The distance can be adjusted by inserting the exact value in inches or centimeters. In a portrait-oriented album, horizontal images may need to be resized, whereas portrait pictures will hardly need to be edited. In any event, you can simply use the automatic layout and pull the pictures into the empty spaces. Then select a suitable background and look for a colour that fits the main theme of the photo album. To conclude, add cliparts, icons, texts or any other element that goes with the meaning and purpose of the picture selection. To check the final appearance of the album, feel free to switch on to preview mode at any stage of the design process.

As you can see, if you decide to buy a photo album instead of creating it online with myphotobook, you could miss out on many artistic possibilities and creative ressources.

How to name your photo album

So once you get the pictures arranged, it is time to give the album a convincing title. But, what if you're not good at coming up with names? A good title catches the eye, it intrigues the reader, encouraging him to open the album and keep on turning the pages with interest. In this section we offer you some nice ideas and suggestions to help you create witty and epic photo album names:

  • think of the album title as if it were the headline of a magazine;
  • describe what you were doing at that moment and how you felt about it;
  • try one surprising or absolutely ridiculous sentence (for example, some of your group of friends' favourite sayings - the sillier, the better);
  • name the main character (maybe your pet?) or the person who the album is dedicated to;
  • take the lyrics of a song, a famous citation or the title of a film;
  • an easy one: just mention the name of the place where pictures were taken with your camera.

A good title will make a photo album be clearly more genuine and will refer to personal aspects , which is something you just cannot buy in a normal store. For further support concerning photo album formats and design elements, please contact myphotobook's English speaking hotline!
