Pay your photographer to make the album using your photbook canada site? Laughing

Pick your top 5 pics from each section of the day and build around those.

I would call and see if they can automatically pick them for you…Like maybe theres a random shuffle feature lol

My apple laptop has a photobook software that will do that…and I love it.

If you have the photos on your computer where you can move them around, I would put them in folders based on parts of the day, details, formals/family or whatever – then as mentioned pick your faves.

I have to do this often with shoots for work for ads or print and I’m totally a visual person – I need to SEE those all on one screen but focused on one thing at a time to not get overwhelmed.

Good luck!!!

@bakerella: I made my album with Photobook America. My first step was to make a folder on my desktop with my favorite photos of each important moment/detail and then import that – so that the selection when you are trying to make layouts is way less overwhelming. I ended up with a 200 page book actually – lots of full bleeds, very simple layouts with large photos (our photog also came to our rehearsal dinner, so it was a whole other event of photos to include!!). I used groupons for the smalled parent books I made and waited for the 40% off sales they seem to have every other month for our big album, since it saved so much more than the Groupon!

I know you spent money on using Photobook Canada, but for the hassle factor you might want to use AdoramaPix. You can choose from many different layouts and I love mine which was 10×10, 72 pages and only $133.

I also started making mine by picking my favorite photos. Then I organized them into different sections. It was easier to find layouts that way b/c if I knew I had 3 pictures in a section, I knew to pick a 3 picture layout.
