Hey all – today I’m looking for a little bit of input and help from you all…. I’m having major photobook woes… We went on a dream-like, wonderful, awesome vacation last Fall – to Hawaii and California. Perfect Bliss.
And I still have all these thousands (literally, lol) beautiful pictures sitting on my hard drive and sooooo want to put them into a book to look at them when and where I want to. But … it’s still not done yet, and I have barely started on it, because of this terrible monster called “perfectionism” rearing it’s head everytime I work on it… and I’m torn about what to do:
- Use the photobook software from one of the printing companies and just do a picture book? The ones I’ve looked at so far don’t even offer the option to add a drop shadow to your pictures, BUT I’d have a book to look at out beautiful photos pretty fast.
- Or do my pages in PS with drop shadows but only a bare minimum of embellishments and a uniform background – not that fast, but prettier and I’d have the layered files in case I’ll ever decide to redo it?
- Or accept that it’s going to take me ages and ages (even using Manda’s power scrapping method) and have a perfect book in the end (whenever that may be)?
What do you do? Is there another option that’s “perfect” (there’s that word again, lol) and I haven’t considered? I’d love to hear about your thoughts and methods…
