When I was first asked to review a Blurb photo book, I jumped at the chance and knew exactly what I would be making with it.
My 12 year old son Kian, was a player escort at Wembley back in 2011 and although I had previously made a photo book for him, it hadn’t come out as planned and I was really disappointed with the quality.
With Blurb, you can make all sorts of photo books from Instagram to Travel, Baby to Family – the list goes on, so with all the changes to Instagram, now is the time to do it!!
If I am honest, I had a nightmare doing my Blurb book initially, but it was my own fault. I tried to run before I could walk and started doing a template designed for more experienced users. After some fantastic (and very patient) help from their team, I started again from the beginning and used their basic templates, which were more than adequate for my needs.
The website lets you crop and resize you photos and I had a couple of instances where I played too much so the pictures were not good enough quality, but the website tells you, and gives you another warning before you check out. I simply just replaced the photos as found it too much hassle to try re-sizing them again!
Here is my front cover:
|Kian and the rest of the player escorts|
You can choose your pages colours, the paper quality and how many pictures you would like per page, and I am so pleased with the results. My photographs do not do it justice at all!
|With Sir Geoff Hurst before the match|
|Community Shield Line Up 2011|
The colours are sharp, the pictures are clear and having gone for a hardback version I know this book is going to last for years!!
