You will always run into these issues unless you pick a template that uses 4×6 aspect ratio windows for everything (which will look pretty boring).  If you dont, then you have to manually crop the images while laying out the book.

Your best bet is to work through your photographer.

i think companies like adoramapix and mpix allow you to edit your photos onto a page (in photoshop or other editing software) and then upload the whole page…. so you can format it however u want. i think….. i have just started my research because i plan on doing my own photo book

I am using Blurb to do my photobook and it has been really easy to use.  You can download their program which comes with tons of templates and you can adjust any of the tmeplates (or create new ones entirely).  I am not sure about editing the pictures though.

Shutterfly actually allows this!  It’s really easy to use.

For a wedding album though, I would pick something nicer unless you’re on a budget.

@Melini:

i use either blurb or mypublisher for myself,  or bob books for weddings,   but i design my pages in photoshop,  at the correct page size,   then upload them,  and place them onto a blank page,   i have complete controll of them this way.  hope this helps. 

i dont like there templates,  and i also need to sometimes re-size images and edit them if they are dark or need colour adjustments etc, and this is done before designing the pages.

I would use adorama pix if on a budet.  It’s the only one that uses realphoto paper.  The other products are press printed and use cardstock.

I was not happy with the print quality of the blurb book I made

Mypublisher has good print quality, but the pages are thin and don’t hold up with use.  I used it for a honeymoon album and bought 2 because the one that gets viewed looks like crap already.

Also, the bindings of all these books are glued, so don’t expect them to last yrs like a real hand made professional album will.
