American Greetings PhotoWorks Studio Book Tour

I've made many photo books from major online photo services in the last few years. For one, they are a quick way to put together something very polished -- with no craft skill or patience, whatsoever. Secondly, I can create several copies of a neat design to give to everyone on my gift list. No one gets left out during the holidays!

I was able to try out creating an online Studio Book from American Greetings PhotoWorks website just recently, and my experience was rather pleasant! I was to make a Baby version, which came in two styles, and its super-spiffy interface made it easy. Anyone could do it.

As you can see below, it works on any computer to quickly upload photos you have on your PC or Mac to include in your book creation! It didn't require anything more than a quick application installation, and my computer ran quickly through the entire process.

When I was done uploading everything, I could tweak the design to include multiple photos on a page, special captions and customized sayings, and font changes. Even for someone as unskilled as I am -- this looked beautiful when I was done!

I can't wait to give the book as a gift for Mother's Day this year. My family will be so surprised!!

If you're interested in learning more about the Studio Books, you can get all the info at The price is currently $39.95 for 20 pages (you can use over 20 photos), plus 99 cents for each additional page. It takes less than a half hour to complete a project, provided you know exactly where the photos you want to use are stored on your computer. (You can save your work at anytime, if you get distracted.)

- Note: The photo at the top of this post is not our actual book. That would ruin the surprise!
