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.

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).

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!
