(OPENPRESS) December 10, 2011 -- For many years, photo books have been seen as fantastic Christmas photo gifts and this is for many reasons. Not least is the fact that they are almost always luxury items. Printed on the richest, thickest, glossiest paper and put together in a way which means they will last in pristine condition for years to come, they are clearly bespoke items and, as such, make the perfect choice when you want to splash out and show someone you really care. The difference between the past and the situation created by the flexibility of digital imagery is that now it is not only possible but easy for absolutely anyone to create a personalised gift by putting together a volume of their own. Whereas, once, the only way to store multiple pictures was to stick them onto the pages of photo albums, and accept that such objects were never going to make suitable personalised Christmas gifts, it's now possible to collect your favourite pictures between the covers of a bespoke, top quality photo book, one which will make a fabulous personalised gift.
The process of putting together such a book, which would once have been so difficult as to be possible only for professionals with the right equipment, has been rendered quick, simple and relatively inexpensive. All that anyone who feels that such a book would make the perfect personalised gift has to do is upload the images of their choice to the website. What you choose to build your book around is entirely up to you, doubtless based upon the tastes and interest of the person you're making it for, and the software has been designed to make sure that actually laying out the individual pages will be as easy as possible. Perhaps the only 'difficult' part of the whole process will be dealing with the plethora of choices that are available. From the size, shape and number of pages, to the type and colour of the cover and the positioning of each picture and whether you include any explanatory text. Once you've tweaked and adjusted every facet of your book you can sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that you'll soon be in possession of a luxurious, one off, bespoke volume which is one of the finest personalised gift ideas you could ever consider giving. Not only will it show that you've taken time and trouble over your gift, but it will be put together to such a high standard that it will continue to bring pleasure, and provide a tangible reminder of how much you cared, for many years to come.
