Not sure what type of album you are looking for but shutterfly and snapfish make photo books, which come out nice.  Not as formal as a traditional album, but wanted to offer something to get the convo going 🙂

Kohls and TJ Maxx are good places to check out. Every now and then they have nice ones on sale.

It’s not totally traditional, but, I love self-mount flush mount albums. They look a lot like photobooks but you do it yourself.

I don’t know anything about this company, but this is the type of album:

Here is a youtube video showing someone put one together:

Usually photographers don’t give you “rights” to their photos in the sense that you can’t sell them or alter them and attach the photographers name to it, but you can still use the images to put together a book. Why would it be different if you put physical prints in a old style book than if you put digital prints in a printed book?

I don’t have “rights” to my pictures either but I was still able to get a book printed through an online service. Even if I hadn’t gotten the actual files I could have just saved the images I wanted off of the online gallery. Photographers aren’t holding your images captive, they just don’t want other people making a profit off of them.

But whatever, you can get nice cheap books from Ross to put physical prints in. Or of course places like Hallmark have books. Or you could google  photo album and I’m sure there are TONS on Amazon and the like.

Wow thats kinda bizarre that they wont let you order a photo book of your own pictures that you paid for. Can you request a CD of the pictures?

I am using blurb and LOVE it! They are pretty cheap and you can design your own layout rather than be forced to use pre-set layouts. And I haven’t heard a bad thing about them yet!
