I miss the days when I could simply flip through a photo album and reminisce about the events of the year – it’s just not the same when you have everything downloaded on the computer!
Last year, as I began backing up my photos, I realized that I could still have a photo album without having to print out all of my photos, go to the photo developer – do they even still have those? – and then cut, paste, tape, etc. I started the tradition of creating a photo book with all of my favorite photos, and I love that I have photo albums on my coffee table again!
I just ordered my 2011 Family Album from Nero Kwik Media – if you haven’t heard of them yet, you should check them out! Their photo book software is free to download, and their books start at just $7.95 for a 20 paged 5 x 7 softcover book!
Downloading the Nero Kwik Media program only takes a few moments and is quite simple to use! Once you have downloaded it, you simply choose which photo product type you want – I chose to create a custom photo book, but you can also create calendars and cards! Once you select the type of photo product you want, you simply choose the kind of book you prefer, and boy, are there options!
- Softcover – 2 sizes to choose from
- Hardcover – 4 sizes to choose from
- Premium Cover – 2 finishes and 4 colors to choose from
Once your layout is finished, you can choose from Nero Kwik Media’s huge selection of themed clip art. Just pull in by drag and drop and size them to your preference. I love that Kwik Media lets you give every project a personal touch!
Each photo book you order through Nero Kwik Media is printed regionally by professional printers and books typically ship within five to 10 business days. Of course, you can order expedited shipping if you need your photo book in a rush – which makes them ideal for gifts for the upcoming holidays!
But Nero Kwik Media has more than just photo books! You can use tools to create slide shows and post photos and videos to Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and other online social networks. And you can also use Kwik Media to manage your music and videos. For instance, you can use the software to burn content to DVD and Blu-ray discs so all your entertainment is conveniently in one place – how convenient is that?
From start to finish, the entire process takes about 20 to 30 minutes, and the end result is a beautifully bound photo book that you will cherish for years to come!
