What photo size and resolution do I need to make a photo book?

Ideally over 1200 pixels, the minimum resolution varies depending on the size of the photo book. For more information on recommended photo sizes, see this article.

What should I do when an exclamation mark appears in the photo editor indicating poor photo quality?

We recommend that you follow the required resolution that appears when you click the exclamation mark. If you still want to place lower quality photos in the photobook, choose at least a layout with more photos on one page - for example, four photos side by side.

What happens when I do not fill any text in the “Add caption” field on the book cover?

The book cover will stay blank, without any caption.

Can I print on the back cover of the book?

Yes you can with these types of photo book:

  • Square photo book with paper soft cover
  • Layflat photo album with paper hardcover

I am adding emoticons in some of my texts - I can see them in the preview, are they going to appear in the final printed version too?

Yes, indeed they will. You can use any smiley that you find on a standard computer or smartphone keyboard. 💗😉🌹🍺🎉

I edit my texts so that there are no prepositions, conjunctions, etc. - is the printed product going to be identical to the preview on the website?

Yes, the final look of the product will be identical to the preview.

Can I create my own layout and upload it in the photo book?

We strongly recommend using the layout offered by our editor. You can choose from a variety of layouts - from a single photo printed across an entire double page (a very popular feature in photo books btw.) to several mini-photos on one page (e.g. a series of shots of your four-legged friend). You can also add captions to your photos and choose a background color.

I have created a 6.7 x 6.7″ photo book but decided I would prefer the 8 x 8″ size instead. Can I somehow convert it?

No, unfortunately in this case you will need to start the new format from scratch.

Where can I preview my photo book after I have ordered it?

Sign into your account. Click “Saved projects” - click the “share” button - then click the last icon to get a link - a preview of your book will open in a new window. You can share this link.

Can I share or download the book preview after I have placed an order?

Yes, we will appreciate it if you share your projects!

Full answer

I have ordered a photo book and another photo product but I have not received the photo book yet.

Do not worry😉, photo books take longer to produce so they can sometimes be shipped separately from the other products you have ordered. You will receive an email each time part of your order has been shipped.

I have noticed there is a mistake in my photo book only after having placed the order, can something be done about it? Should I change my order?

After placing an order, the book cannot be edited in the editor any more. Please contact us.

Can I order several print outs of the same photo book?

Yes, create your photo book in the editor and then simply choose the desired number of print outs in the cart.

Can I order several print outs of the same photo book with various spine cover colors?

No, in this case you need to make a separate order for each of your books and choose a different spine color for each of them. You can order more print outs of the same photo book but they have to be identical, including the spine color.

Can I order several print outs of the same photo book with only minor differences in them?

Nope, you will need to create each of the photo books separately.

Can I order another print out of a photo book that I have ordered in the past?

Yes, please sign in to your profile and open the book in the editor where you can adjust it and order a print out again. You will find a step-by-step guide below.
