Make Your Own Photobooks

Memory Escape Review:
Memory Escape Photo Books

Memory Escape has a very straightforward interface to make your photo books. The software is online and you must first upload your photos that you want in the book. Once you decide on the size of the book you will get a chance to either use autofill and have the software place the pictures, or you will be able to do them yourself.

The Photo Book Design Process

The design is a little inflexible because each theme has a set layout. If the theme you choose has only one picture on the page you need to change the theme for another page if you want to have more pictures, or you can add more pictures to the page, but you cannot resize or move the original picture. It makes for a very awkward design process.

There is limited navigation or saving of your book during the design process. If you are called away during the middle of the book you have to pretend you are going to order the book in order to save it. The only way possible to get back to the home page was to click on the Memory Escape icon and I returned to the Home Page. Fortunately, the book is saved automatically but the process is not intuitive.

Memory Escape Review: The Software

The photo book software at Memory Escape is fairly easy to follow and is good for someone who does not want to do much of the design themselves. People who want a high degree of creativity might be a little disappointed in their choices. You are walked through the process of designing a project, and there is only one way to get to many of the screens. This is a bit different from some other photo book printers where you have more than one way you can get to your projects.
