Photobox

One of the first solutions I recommend you try to create a photo album is Photobox, a very renowned service in the field of photo printing that offers a very wide choice both in terms of the type and prices of the albums.

To create an album with PhotoBox, click here in order to link to the section Photobooks of the site and select the tab relating to the type of album you want to make (eg. Classic, Premium, Flexible covers, Etc.).



If, for example, you want to make a traditional photo album, click on the item Classic, then select the size of your photo book using the options on the right (eg. Photobook Prestige A4 o Prestige XL), click on the green button See the Book to preview what your photo album will look like and, on the following pages, click on the button I create my book per due turn consecutive.

At this point, you will be asked to enable Adobe Flash Player to proceed with the creation of the photo book. If you want to activate the plugin (if you don't know how to download and activate Adobe Flash Player on your browser, read the insights I have just linked to you) click on the green button Continuation and then follow the instructions you see on the screen; if you don't want to activate the plugin, click on the link instead Try our new creation tool.

Now, import the photos you want to make the photo album with by clicking the button Upload photos and choose whether to upload them from PC or from one of your online profiles (Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, dropbox o Google Plus). After uploading the photos you want to use for your project, click on the green button Upload starts in order to complete the upload and click on the button Back to my photos from the box that opens. Then click the button Tutto, in order to use all the photos uploaded and then click on the green button Create the Photo Book I will continue.



In the box that appears on the screen, you will be asked to choose whether to create the photo book manually (by clicking on the green button Manual creation) or whether to create it automatically (by clicking on the orange button I discover my photo book). After making your choice and possibly changing the layout of the photo book, the position of the photos and adding texts and illustrations, write the title of the book in the appropriate text field and then use the arrows (<) e (>) to browse it virtually.

As soon as you are satisfied with your work, click on the orange button To sort, possibly improve the quality of the photo book by selecting more valuable materials (which of course will raise the purchase price) and then confirm your order by clicking on the button again To sort. On the page that opens, complete the procedure by selecting the delivery details and register for the service by filling out the registration form with your name, email and other personal information. Once you have logged in to the service, indicate the payment and shipping method you prefer and that's it.
