Photo albums are a great way to preserve your momentous occasions but they also allow you to share your memories with family and friends. They are keepsakes that hold your family history and can be gifted from generation to generation.
By registering with PictoBooks, you’ll be able to save your progress.
We recommend having your images organized prior to uploading them. Curate your photos to tell a story. Keep in mind the images you’d like to highlight.
Tip: Having a naming convention for your files will help keep you organized.
ex. eventname_001.jpg, eventname_002.jpg, eventname_003.jpg, etc.
Start by selecting a series that suites your style:
Signature Series features a genuine leather cover.
Linen Series features a linen fabric cover.
Next, pick your starting options such as album size, leather color, and cover style.
For your cover, you have the choice of a highlight photo (windowed), stamped text (foil text), and or have both (windowed + foil text).
Finally, enter our design editor to see your options come to life! This is where you begin designing your spreads.
Album series, type, and size cannot be changed once you begin your project.
In the editor, begin by reviewing the cover layout and options under the "layout" and "options" tab on the right side. Then, edit your text/photo depending on the chosen cover layout.
To edit your text, double click the text field.
To edit your cover photo, drag and drop an image into the placeholder.
After finalizing your cover options, you can move on to designing your album layouts. You can stick to the prechosen templates or drag and drop in a template from the "layouts" tab on the right side.
Then, simply drag your photos (images tab) onto the layouts (grey image fields).
To adjust the position of your photos inside the layout, click the photo you want to adjust on the layout, then under images tab, select the crop icon, you'll be able to move the photo left, right, up, or down in it's container.
To add additional spreads to your design, select the organize button on the bottom left, then select +Add Page.
Finally, please be sure to carefully review your album.
Tip: Remember the center of the spread is where it folds, avoid placing faces or anything important across this fold. The center is designed in the editor by a grey dotted line.
