Picture Perfect

I am a huge fan of photography. I enjoy taking pictures, and more recently creating photo books. Jeff discovered '' about three years ago. It is a great website dedicated to helping you organize the perfect photo books from the comfort of your own home. The process is as follows:

  • Create an account on
  • Decide on a book size
  • Pick out a layout (travel album, cook book, story book, etc.)
  • Download all of the pictures that you would like to use
  • Organize each book page (with or without text, patterned backgrounds or solid colors, etc.)
  • Complete your order (download your book to the blurb website and pay - my only problem with this website is the length of time it takes for this final stage)

Every once in a while I get an email from blurb showcasing new ideas to try, and often a discount to use on my next order.

I have made three books so far and did not pay extra for shipping, they all arrived within a week.

Another bonus to this website is that all of your creations are saved in an account. If you loose the book, or tear a page, you can sign back in and re-print a book - for the full charge of course. Also, if it is a book that other friends or family members like, you can easily order another book or multiples for their own collection.

I'm sure that there are many tools on that I have yet to discover. Overall, I found it an easy website to navigate and the finished product is very professional looking.
