User Tips for Making a Photobook: Choosing Your Photos!

January 30, 2014 at 5:33 am

Photobooks are such a great way to convey your special moments! This year for Valentine’s Day I decided to make one for my significant other to show him how much joy he brings into my life. Before starting I was wondering what photos I would use and whether it would take me a long time get 20 photos (of course I’m using a ZoomIn express theme!) However, once I started going through my online albums, I realized there were so many photos to choose from – I was done picking my photos in 10 minutes! In case if you’re wondering what kind of photos you can use in your photobook for Valentines Day, here are some ideas to get you started.

1) Take your significant other down memory lane with photos from the time you met till today. If you’ve been together for a while, you might be smiling when you see how different both of you looked then and now!

2) Photos from a special day or a trip. We just got engaged recently so I couldn’t help but put in a photo of that moment. Trip photos are wonderful moments to relive over as well.

That special moment captured!

4) My centerfold pages are ‘these are a few of my favorite things..about you’. I’ve included pictures and messages of what makes my fiancé so special.

3) Photos that have a significant meaning just to the two of you. I decided to mix up the photobook by also including pictures which didnt have either of us. One of the pictures was where we had our first date and aside from both of us nobody else will ever know the meaning of the picture (except for you now).

Our first date spot!

I hope this gives you some ideas in case you were stuck. Whatever photos you choose, your significant other will be thrilled to relive moments that are special to just the two of you. So go ahead and get going on that photobook -pick out those photos, have some fun and be ready to see your beautiful creation come to life!

Gifting Ideas for Diwali

October 25, 2013 at 6:05 am

At ZoomIn we always love to hear how our products made someone smile! Here’s a few customer stories from last year that help us understand how our products are spreading smiles.

“Being an auspicious time of the year, many people undertake home renovation projects and host parties in their newly renovated home during Diwali. Gifting something unique and relevant is always a challenge but last year I came up with a great idea! For my cousin’s housewarming, I created a 16″x20″ mounted canvas print of our big family reunion. He loved it and the canvas still sits proudly on his wall!” – Sachin from Mumbai

Canvas: A printed canvas definitely adds a point of interest to a room.

“I met my wife to be in March 2012 and our wedding day was coming up in December. For our first Diwali as a couple, I wanted to give my fiancee something special. Using the love theme from ZoomIn, I created a beautiful photo book with pictures of both of us. She was speechless with joy and a bit surprised when she got it . She doesn’t see my creative side too often. Thanks ZoomIn!” – Raj from Delhi

Photobook: Your special moments told through photos.

“It was my first time away from home and my Nani was missing me a lot. While we talk on Skype often, I wanted to do something more. Thanks to ZoomIn, I was able to send her a fantastic mug with a picture of both of us and a message of an inside joke we share! She says she smiles every time she looks at it.” – Jaya from Bangalore

Mug: Launched just in time for Diwali- NEW festive themes for mugs.

“I’ve always liked giving something different to my close friends during Diwali. Last year I gave all 6 of them photo calendars, using photos from the past year. We’ve had some fun moments and some not-so fun moments (when Isha got covered in mud) but these are moments everyone remembers now!” – Sneha from Hubli

Calendar: Each month holds a special memory with photo calendars.

These customers have definitely given me some great ideas for Diwali – hope they do the same for you!
Get started on your wonderful gifts for the festive season!

ZoomIn favorites for Mother’s Day Photo books!

April 16, 2013 at 11:19 pm

We love photo books, especially gifting them to mothers! However it is possible to get stuck while thinking of what story your photo book will tell. So we asked our staff and here are our top favorites:

Walk down memory lane  

Tell your mother’s life story and create a biography for her! Gather pictures of her childhood, teen years, working years, getting married and, of course, being a mother. (You can scan the older pictures and use the digital images) A fantastic tribute to moms! An added bonus, while gathering old photos you may learn some  new things about your mother!

 Little Moments

Life is all about the special moments and a photo book is a great way to bring those to life. Create a book that will remind mom of the special memories both of you have shared. Starting from the time you were born to the present – those photos along with your personal text will touch her deeply.

ALBUM1An Ode To Mom 

In photos of course! A collection of Mom’s photos covering all the roles she plays -lifesaver, friend, scrabble partner, baby sitter, tuition teacher and so many more! Our new theme, A Mother’s Love, makes it really easy since we’ve pre-published some beautiful poems in it already. All you need to do is upload your photos!

odetomom Masterchef Mom

Is your mother the resident Tarla Dalal? She loves to cook and spends her time in the kitchen coming up with delicious things for everyone to enjoy? Make her a recipe book with her favorite dishes, your favorite dishes or even both. You can add fun stories and memories that your family associates with those dishes. Celebrate her culinary skills with this one!

 Amazing Mom

Fathers at ZoomIn came up with the idea of a photo book that highlights, not only their wives’  achievements, but also recognizes the small things she does everyday. Gather up pictures of her proud moments and click some pictures as she goes about her daily tasks. You’ll have a great gift for the busy mother who does so much for her family.

These are just some ideas to get you started! We’d love to hear different ideas that you have – please send them in at community@zoomin.com

Mother’s Day is May 12, 2013!

April 15, 2013 at 4:52 am

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 12th, 2013. Mother’s day is a day celebrated to honor the mothers in our lives. We should celebrate moms every day, however a particular day ensures that we reflect on all that our moms have done for us. Ask any mother and she’ll tell you that she loves being a mother – she cherishes her moments with her kids and would gladly give up everything for them. That is why Mothers’ Day is so important. It may slip by us to appreciate our mothers on a daily basis, but on this day, we can all unite to celebrate the one person who defines the meaning of the word ‘love’ – our very own mother. It is certainly a favorite occasion at ZoomIn!  image

Most countries celebrate Mother’s Day on second Sunday in the Month of May. While there is no direct connection to ancient traditions, it’s believed that in ancient Greece, the people paid tribute to Rhea, the Mother of the Gods, each spring. However its Miss Jarvis from the USA that got the day its actual date.  Miss Jarvis was very close to her mother , who passed away in May 1905.  Anna missed her mother very much and felt that children should appreciate their mother’s more while they’re still alive. Anna hoped Mother’s Day would increase respect and love and strengthen family bonds. Her efforts finally led to US President Woodrow Wilson designating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. This tradition of celebrating Mothers Day and paying tribute to mothers spread across several countries over the years.

This is the first in a series of posts that we will run for Mother’s Day. In the coming weeks, we will have several posts coming up.
