This year, I decided to make yet another book for my parents. I intend to give the gift around Christmas and I know, without a doubt, that they will be overjoyed. My parents were so excited to receive their photo book gift last year and I know that this year will be no different.

AdoramaPIX provides a user-friendly interface where you can customize a photo book in minutes. Creating my book took a total of 20 minutes. Delivery was quick, especially when you consider that each and every book that's made must be printed.
I ordered the 12-page, 8 x 8 photo book. For the cover, I chose "Leather-Lux." As an add-on, I chose the Chestnut Storage Box. The total price for all of this was $52.94.
Here's the photo book that I received in the mail about a week later...
The image above is one of the Chestnut Storage Box with an elastic ribbon around it. It adds a beautiful touch to the photo book.
Inside the box, the photo book was protected by a soft piece of paper, folded around the cover.
What I love most about the storage box is that you can just give it directly to someone, no wrapping needed. The box is also a beautiful way to add extra protection!
Inside the book, the images were crisp, clear, and clean. The paper that the images were printed on is thick, smooth, and shiny.
I absolutely love the way that the book turned out.
I know my parents are going to love it, too.
To create a photo book on AdoramaPIX, use the brief tutorial below! It should help you out!
First things first, hover your mouse over "Photo Books" and then select, "Create Your Book." From the menu that appears, you'll be able to start customizing your photo book.
Start by selecting a cover, the shape, size, paper finish, and design option (choose from their premade designs, upload your own .pdf, or create your own design). Choosing one of the premade layouts is the fastest way to get your book together; that's what I've chose in the example below.
Click "Choose a Design" (this will be what the button says if you're using their design, otherwise you'll be taken straight to the drag and drop creator) to get started on your design. Here, you can choose which design category fits best with your images.
The designs they offer are:
Here is an example of some of their designs for weddings (on the left side):
You can, of course, choose to design your own and then use any of the stickers, frames, and backdrops to make your own original design.
Once you've selected your design, you'll be able to upload images, export from software, or even import them from social media like Facebook, Instagram, Google+, and Flickr! This makes gathering your most important photos much easier.
Once you've uploaded the images you want, drag them to the box to add them to your project.
You'll then be taken to the editing screen where you can begin working on your book.
The boxes at the bottom show the pages in your project. You can click on each page to edit it.
The bar along the side allows you to design your book by adding images, backdrops, frames, text, stickers, layouts, and more. You can even change the entire theme if you decide you don't like the theme you chose.
The top allows you to undo any edits you've made, clear all photos, clear all text, and other functions.
Finally, there is the toolbox where you can save, preview, share, or order your project. The price is right there, so you'll know what to expect before checking out.
Your memories deserve more than a lifeless phone or tablet screen! Turn your memories into beautiful keepsake photos that will last for generations! These books are high-quality and display your images in rich, clean detail. There are so many designs to choose from!
