As some of you may know, I started Lasting Impressions over 18 years ago and, until Christmas of 2006, my children didn't have any scrapbooks. That was until MemoryMixer, Digital Scrapbooking Made Easy! With MemoryMixer I was able to create PhotoBooks...my favorite gifts I gave that year. I created 3 albums, one for my son, one for my daughter and one that I made 3 copies of to give as gifts, all in a few hours. Here are a few helpful hints to help you create your own PhotoBook.
To make creating photo books even easier, MemoryMixer has a feature that allows you to display trim guides on your pages. This will help you place objects on the page and avoid having them trimmed as the photo book is being created. To find the guides, click on "View Album" along the top tool bar, then "Guides" and then choose either "photo book" option.
This will turn on a gray translucent area. It is important to place all objects that you do not want trimmed within the safe area.
Custom Front & Back Covers
One of the reasons MemoryMixer PhotoBooks are so popular is the ability to create a custom cover. That's right, you design your front and back cover. You can use lots of photos, a single photo, a photo as a background or no photo at all.
When submitting your album, page #1 will be the front cover, the second page will be the title page and the last page will be the back cover. It is also important to order the right shape book. If you have created your album using a square format, you will need to order a square book. You can always change the shape of your album if necessary.
Once you have your pages completed, click on "Share" on the side panel and select PhotoBooks. Simply follow the instructions to prepare your files. Once you have your files prepared, upload them to MemoryMixer.com.
Your custom book will be shipped in 7-10 days
