ok bee’s, I am gonna be getting my pro pics in about a week and a half and I really want to get started on my album when we get them!
I have used Kodak which is now shutterfly. (I did a boudoir shoot). and I was happy with it…but the only thing I can say is in some pictures the “colour” was really really exaggerated? like almost came out too vivid. My girlfriend had the same thing with her wedding book but she did have orange as her colour and the photog did emphasize that in her final pics… but I remember looking at her photobook and thinking it was nice, but also going WHOA thats bright.
Has anyone else ever had that with kodak/shutterfly??
I have really vivid colours in my wedding so I am concerned it will look hokey. I have a Bridesmaid or Best Man who said a lady at her work uses Blurb? She said shes used a few diff sites and its her fav…… she makes multiple books every year I guess for like grandkids etc….
anyone have any experience?? or advise

I highly recommend Adoramapix. I have used others before and their page and picture quality is much better. Their pages are so thick they stand up on their own, you can go from page to page without losing any of your picture. I really can’t say enough things about them!

@shanbp: I dont’ have any experience with any of them, but I’d check out Shutterfly first because they’re constantly helping Ellen donate on her show. haha

For Press books I like Adoramapix or Mypublisher with the upgraded paper. The rest are a junkie IMO.

@shanbp: I used shutterfly for my guest book/engagement pics & used adoramapix for my wedding album and wow adoramapix is awesome. Shutterfly was good enough for guest book but wouldn’t have been good enough for my album. The quality of adoramapix is great.

I have used Shutterfly quite a bit and have always liked how my photo books came out. I have done several now. I have also used Snapfish… both came out well for me

I experimented with a bunch, creating a family album/honeymoon/engagement on one of each and in the end decided that Photobook America was by far the best. Best software, best quality, best prices, everything. They constantly have promos too. I actually hated the software for Picaboo & Adorama even though everyone is in love with them, and MyPublisher offers set layouts where you can’t move stuff around and no embellishments (frames, etc).

I have only used My Publisher and Shutterfly. Shutterfly is low quality, My Publisher is great, but i’m considering Adorampix for my wedding album because the lay flat pages are very poor from My Publisher.

I strongly recommend adoramapix. I actually wrote a blog post comparing shutterfly vs. blurb vs. adoramapix (http://fifteenminuteplan.wordpress.com/2012/08/08/photo-book-round-up/). I have also seen snapfish and my publisher books and my opinion stands— use aodramapix.

I’ve narrowed it down to ProDPI, WHCC, Black Water Imaging, and Nations Photo Lab. Anybody have any experience with any of these printers?
I want to do a press printed book with 30-40 pages on a higher end paper (probably pearl?) with a layflat hinge. All of the ones I’m looking at offer some sort of proofing option which I like so I can correct any color issues before ordering the full book.

i print pictures from snapfish when they have penny prints and i like the quality.
my mom scrapbooks the old fashioned way, but a digital scrapbooker i was talking to likes shutterfly over snapfish.
