I’m planning on using Somerset Albums for my flush mount. I’ve begun working on designing it and found the software to be pretty easy to use. They have a ton of layouts and you just drag and drop your photos.

The total cost is going to be around $600 I think which is way less than what our photographer would charge.

I used AdoramaPix for our photo guest book and liked it for a photobook but it certainly doesn’t compare to a flushmount album.

I think you will be happy with Somerset, and that would be my recommendation for a DIY.  The worst part is that you have to wait to upload all the info in order to do a book preview.

Myphotocreations is new and I think the jury is still out on it.

Adoramapix doesn’t compare and I don’t know what the hype is all about on picaboo, I just don’t see it comparing.

I am a photographer and I am not going to harp on the fact that you should buy through your photographer but an album from blurb or adoramapix to showcase 3K worth of photography doesn’t make much sense to me.  The book may last your lifetime, but they do tend to look worn with little use and the binding is glued.  I tell people this so they know what they are getting.  The choice it up to you.

I am interested in this thread as well… I don’t forsee Picaboo being a major contendor in flush mount books, but I am looking for a reputable company to do it myself.

@hisgoosiegirl:I actually found that the pictures uploaded into the design program really quickly (and we have the high-res images from our photographers so they are large files).  What takes longer is uploading the completed pages back to the Somerset website (where you would then preview the whole book and order).  But you can just get it started and leave it to run for a while, it’s not something you have to sit around and wait for.

I am not planning on a set number of pages (since Somerset has a ton of page number options).  I’m just designing as I go and including the images and events that I want and we’ll see how many I end up with.

@hisgoosiegirl: The only “preview” before uploading back to the website is just the design page itself.  But it seems to be pretty easy to replace a page if, after uploading and previewing, you see things you want to tweak and fix.

It’s always best to have them color correct if you don’t have a monitor calibrated to their color space.  Your images were color corrected to your photographer’s monitor, which is probably a different calibration to the lab’s printers.  Do they offer any sort of guarantee if you do decide to have them color correct and you come out green!?
