What is a Photo Book?

February 28, 2013 at 11:33 pm

Hello fellow ZoomIners! We noticed that many of you have been wondering as to what a Photo Book exactly is. So to clear the air we had a quick chat with our beloved Photo Book! Read on for excerpts from the conversation…

ZI: ZoomIn
PB: Photo Book


ZI: Hi! Would you like to introduce yourself to our readers?

PB: Sure! I am the ZoomIn Photo Book, the new age and much improved substitute to Photo albums. Think of me as a coffee table or magazine style book which not only includes your digital photos, but also gives you a chance to personalize through various backgrounds, cliparts and text.

I have been around for a while now and have a big family too. We are quite a diverse lot and come in various sizes, finishes, prices, etc. Click here  to see our entire family tree.  What binds all of us together is the sheer joy that we get from helping you preserve your memories in your own fun and unique way!   In fact, when I was featured on the cover of Times magazine, I was called ‘The Memory Keeper’.

The Flipbook – Our magazine styled Photo Book!

 

ZI: A ‘Memory Keeper’? That’s so cool! So people look at you during special occasions?

PB: To tell you the truth, ever since I made it to the cover of Times magazine, I’ve been type casted.  You don’t really need an occasion to call me. You can use me every day. However, with that said I do see a lot of people using me during special occasions such as:

  • Documenting their baby’s milestones
  • Reliving their awesome travels
  • Saying “Happy Birthday,” “I Love You,” or “Happy Anniversary”
  • Creating unique gifts for special holidays such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or Rakhsha Bandhan, etc
  • Capturing engagement and wedding memories
  • Sharing a memorable year with loved ones
  • Giving old albums a second life by converting them into digital Photo Books
  • Showcasing their professional work to clients

 

Although, if you ask me, there’s plenty of other times you can call on me. Some of my recent favorites are:

  • A gardening book
  • A dedication to my favorite sports person/sports team
  • A cookbook full of recipes
  • Collection of best photos
  • A school’s cricket team
  • A Mother’s memories

 

"How I Grew Up!"

Here’s an interesting concept – This book covers a baby girl’s first 5 years, right from the time she was born.

Think about it this way – anytime you’re looking to preserve your memories in your own unique way, I’m here! I’m always bringing about a rush of mirth and happiness wherever I go.

 

ZI: That’s quite a statement to make! You’ve been told that?

PB: I know it sounds like I’m blowing my own trumpet here, but let me illustrate through a couple of recent testimonials that I received…

“My sisters and I almost burst into tears when we saw the mold on our parents’ wedding photos. We quickly scanned the remaining good photos and then thought of creating their wedding Photo Book! We chose a complete vintage look-n-feel theme and a leather cover. Kept it really simple since their beautiful black and white photos spoke volumes! My parents were so overwhelmed. I think it’s the best gift we’ve given them”

“We were expecting our first child and I was trying to figure out what I could give my wife as we were entering a new phase of our lives. During that time, I came across zoomin.com and learned about Photo Books being a way to tell your story. So I started working on a flipbook that walked us down memory lane, starting from when we met,  to our wedding and finally to our recent trip together. My wife was really surprised with my creativity and loved it! I’ll need to start making the sequels once our child arrives!”

 

ZI: Wow! They make it sound so effortless!

PB: That’s because it actually is! All I ask for is a bit of your time. How much you’d like to devote though is completely up to you! If you have a fair amount of time on your hands, you can sit down and I will offer you full freedom to create and customize me the way you want.  We can spend a few hours together and I promise you a memory that will last a lifetime.

Of course, if you don’t have the luxury of time, you can check with my niece the ‘Express Book’. She comes pre-designed and in turn, tends to be quick with her work. Various themes with readily designed photo place holders and the option to add text wherever you may please. What more could you possibly want!

 

Freedom of creativity through various customization options!

Freedom of Creativity – Add as many photos to a page as you may please, tilt, crop, add a background, a border, clipart, text, convert to black & white and various other customization options!

That’s all that we have for now! Although we’ve been promised one more interview real soon, so keep checking this space.
