There was a time when the practice of creating photo books was quite common. Although it dwindled over time, it has made a comeback in the past few years as one of the popular photographic fashions. So, if you too want to create your own special photo book, here is how you can do it:
Step 1: Organize Your Photos
This is a really crucial step that many people tend to forget or even ignore. The main reason why organizing your photos is essential is that it gives you a sense of direction. Place the photos in different folders according to the year or events (whatever that suits you). It will save a lot of time and unnecessary headache of organizing pictures later on.
Step 2: Choose the Best Ones
You upload only your best pictures on social media right? You have to do the exact thing with your photo book as well. Discard any photo that seems blurry or identical to another picture. Remember that if a photo is out of focus, its quality will only decrease when you enlarge it.
Step 3: Be Consistent
Whether it is a number of images per page, borders, or even the size of the image, you have to make sure you remain consistent. It is because your consistency will give a flow to your photo book and keep others engaged. If there is an image that you like but it doesn’t resonate with the other images, it is best to use it in another photo book.
Step 4: Pick a Theme
When it comes to giving a storyline to a book, the theme plays a really important role. You have to make sure the theme resonates with the images. For instance, if it is a baby photo book then consider choosing a theme that is light and cute. Make sure you do not pick a theme straight away. Give it a try to some other themes and then choose the best fit.
Step 5: Don’t Forget To Include Texts
Although images are enough to tell the story, it is also best if you use words to secure memory. You can write dates and even brief stories alongside pictures. Doing so can be really helpful in recreating your memory in the coming years.
