Creating photobooks for family just got easier thanks to Kodak. A few months ago they invited me to a tutorial for their new Kodak SmartFit Photo Books. I was impressed when I sat in on the session at the PR office. But I had to go home and create my own album, order it, and then see the finished product. Having tested every step along the way, I can give Kodak a glowing review.
The new software is better than ever. My photos from a recent family trip to Bermuda uploaded in a flash. Start by visiting KodakGallery.com from there click on the Photo Books tab. The new and improved technology is called Smartfit.
Start your album by dragging all the photos you want onto a side bar. Personalize the album by picking the size, color and whether you want a hard or soft cover. Prices vary by size and color, but start around $20 for a smallish book. Next I sorted my photos by date taken. Then I picked the layout, background and border. With a few clicks, I had a sleek personalized album.
I arranged and rearranged the album using the intuitive tools. Then clicked purchase. About a ten days later, I had a gorgeous book for my in-laws (shhh don't tell it's a gift!). Here's a look at the inside of the album:
In fact, the process was so smooth and painless I'm going to make an album for Mr. Momtrends of the girls. I'm going to jam in a year's worth of pictures (you know the ones I meant to scrapbook). Kodak makes it so easy I really don't have any excuses.
Hurry there are only 10 days left to order in time for Christmas delivery.
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get a photobook comped to us for testing purposes.
