Photo gift maker

Use Fotobook to make photo books and calendars.

Fotobook Editor lets you create attractive and modern custom books and calendars in a variety of sizes. However, the publisher is based in the United Kingdom, so users outside the U.K. may not be able to get products as quickly it claims.

The interface is well organized and easy to use. There is a Help file that directs users to Fotobook Editor's Web page, and there is an FAQ and a support request form that you can consult if you need assistance. We tried a few of the book and calendar templates and found them easy to use. You can drag and drop photos from your hard drive into the templates and the program will size them to fit. The automatic resizing of images is a benefit for users who do not have photo-editing software. You can add text to any Fotobook Editor products, and once you are ready to order a product, the program informs you if any images are not of sufficient quality or if spaces for images in the templates are left blank.

Fotobook Editor is free; however, the products created with it must be purchased and you must create an account to do so. Also, the publisher promises to get your completed product to you within 10 working days, but we weren't sure if that applies to orders from outside the U.K. There is no information about international orders on Fotobook Editor's Web site. Overall, the program is a good tool for making photo gifts, but users outside the U.K. will want to contact the manufacturers about costs and shipping logistics.
