Blurb Photo Book

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:

Manchester City Player Escorts - 2011 Community Shield
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!

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!!

The best bit is – you can also download it as an iPad copy for just £4.99.  So if you are stuck for that last minute Christmas present and want to make a photo book, then make one for the iPad, or make one with all your Christmas memories!

  1. I am glad you had a good experience with them as I know a few other bloggers who had terrible trouble and not great quality results.
