How do I make a photo book
PhotobooksWA provides you with FREE photo-editing software that you can download from our website. This software allows you to select a photo book size, attach your digital pictures into the pages of the book, and add in backgrounds, special effects, text and captions to complete your design. When your book is completed, with a click of a button, the software will send the order to us via the Internet.
How does the Fast Track option work?
When you click on FastTrack, you will be asked to select the type of book you like and select all the pictures that you want to use. We also have various themes that you can choose from. The software has an intelligent tool to quickly arrange your pictures in a professional layout for you. Further changes and adjustments can then be made with the addition of more pictures, backgrounds or text. Your design can be ready in less than minutes.
Can I adjust the frames in a page?
Yes. All the picture frames are readily created for your convenience. Frames can be removed or added, and their sizes and shapes can be edited. They are fixed in the width:height ratio by default. However, you can enlarge the frame by selecting it and drag on any of the anchor points at the corners. The width or the height will be enlarged or reduced accordingly.
Can I use a picture as a background?
Yes! You can creatively use a picture as a background by dragging the picture to the background area. Alternatively, you can have the picture as a solid background and insert a smaller sized picture as a semi-transparent foreground by adjusting the transparency value for each. Use your right mouse button to bring up the dialog box for background options.
