When preparing to do this HotPrints review, I honestly was not expecting much from the software. But I was nicely surprised. There were several themes to choose, 35 different layouts, and several different borders and corners that could be used. One really neat feature is any picture box will change to the proper orientation once a picture is added. For instance, the layout shows a picture that is landscape and you add a portrait picture. Most programs will not adjust, but HotPrints did.
In writing this HotPrints review, there were two things I really missed within the program is in-book editing of photos and the ability to reorganize pages. If the software could do this then you would really have a super software.
Most of my Profile Pictures did not have enough resolution for the book. I tend to have a low res picture because I have zoomed in on part of a picture. Besides the Profile Pics most of the other pictures were fine to use in the book.
By the way, I mentioned that these books were free (except for shipping and handling). You are allowed to make 4 books a month! So the best part of this HotPrints review? They really are free!
