Deductions – today you order a book with your own photos over the Internet. The test shows how much the offers differ qualitatively.
Choose ten providers, install the Fotobuch software ten times, create ten book layouts, compare ten printed and exposed results meticulously: With this large photo book test, the editorial team of CHIP FOTO-VIDEO digital was busy for a while. But as one finished book after another stacked on the desk, it became clear that the effort was worth it. In addition to the fact that the order process and design possibilities differ, the results regarding the quality of the images and the processing are also different.
Ten high-quality wedding photo books in comparison
For the comparison test, the editorial team has selected ten wedding photographs for up to 50 euros. For this, some manufacturers offer simple halftone printing, others expose to photo paper, and in two cases the pages have been refined with high gloss lacquer. We designed the books with the vendor software, which we installed on a Windows 7 test computer – in one case, however, we had to switch to Windows XP. The completed template was transferred to the respective provider via the Internet. As the only exception, the posterXXL wedding photo book was only designed in a web editor.
All in all, the wedding photo book of the internet provider has cut off. The imprinted variant was in the test – Pixum also offers books as digital print. The victory owes the victory not only to the overall good picture quality, but also to the durable cover and the overall very good workmanship. The design is also easy to handle: If desired, a software assistant takes work, understandable warning messages point to problematic layout placements and possible quality losses. Each image can be individually optimized. And if you have time and desire to do so, you can create the wedding photo book according to your own wishes with the extremely flexible and functional editor.
