Despite the proliferation of platforms for us to show off our photos on — digital picture frames, mobile phones, etc — the humble photo album still has a place. This detailed review can help you pick the best photo-book company for your needs.

Over at the site Digital Home Thoughts, a blog dedicated to home electronics and technology, they decided to use put over a dozen photo-book companies to the test. Using the same set of photos and doing their best to replicate the same design and theme, they documented the process of creating a book start to finish with each company.

If you're having trouble deciding which company to create your album with the reviews in The Great Photo Book Round-Up Review are extremely detailed. They took screenshots of the site and the creation process, photos of the outside and inside of the album, and even included a video of each book so you can see things like how the book lays and the quality of the pages. Below is a sample video from their review of Ingubook:

You know what I miss? Photo albums. I miss flipping through their pages to rediscover memories, and slotting in new pictures. For all the convenience of instant uploads and sharing, my interaction with cloud-stored pictures tends to dissolve right after the first time I upload and share. (A November 2014 survey by self-publishing site Shutterfly suggests the same. )

That's why, for me, a photo book or calendar or heck, even a mug customized with someone's mug on it, makes the perfect gift, a way to hold on to those memories just a little bit longer.

I make a fair number of these little gifts using online services. I thought I'd share my experiences with four publishing sites that I've successfully used for creating photo books: Shutterfly and Mixbook for straightforward photo items; Blurb for a text-heavy book; and Pint Size Productions for the cooing, diapered crowd. I usually stick with the desktop sites, though most also have streamlined mobile apps as well. (Mac users can also create books using iPhoto .)

First smile, first bite of food, first plane trip. I’m only a year into parenthood and I’m already drowning in a virtual sea of digital images. But the real problem is that all these photos sit in oblivion on my hard drive, seemingly never to see the light of a photo album.

If I’m overwhelmed, then I’m sure you are too. So I spent a few weeks reviewing eight photo book Web sites to find the best books for price, quality, and time spent creating. For encouragement, I talked to Richmond-based Sherry Petersik, a mother of two who documents her house renovations with her husband, John, for the blog Young House Love .

Petersik first made the switch from traditional photo albums to printed photo books in 2011, when she became dismayed by how much space albums took up on her shelves—not to mention how much time it took to print out the photos and assemble the albums. “It was an emotional decision for me,” she says, “I always felt behind.”
