To find out more about how to create a photo book for your travel adventures, read on below.   

What Is A Photo Book?

Before you learn how to create a photo book, it is important to start by defining the term photo book. In the simplest of terms, a photo book is essentially designed to help you display your photos, while also telling a story at the same time. To create a photo book, you basically put together a photo album online, before it goes on to be digitally printed. 

The first step in creating a photo book involves choosing your preferred book binding type and size. Afterwards, you upload all the photos you want to use. You can use a wide selection of backgrounds, embellishments and text to customise each background. You also get to choose your preferred photo arrangement/layout. Once you are done, the book will be printed and sent to you.

How To Turn Your Travel Snaps Into A Photo Book

Now that you have a clear idea of what a photo book is, it’s time for some travel book inspiration; read on for a few important tips and ideas on how to create your very own travel photo book

  • Tell The Whole Story: Travel photography involves capturing shots of just about everything you encounter during your adventures, from iconic sights and food to the people and even your accommodation. To create a great travel photo book that comprehensively covers your trip from start to finish, it is recommended that you use a mixture of all these photographs. Include photos of your “downtime” as well as shots of iconic attractions, and everything else in between. 
  • Be Creative: Add some creativity to your travel photo book by using additional elements such as maps, travel quotes, diary notes and title pages. These elements help guide the reader. For instance, a map is a great way to lay out your entire holiday, especially if you visited a variety of destinations in one trip.  
  • Use Captions: While some people may want the images to do all the talking, and for the reader to fill in the gaps, others like to add text/captions as a means of jogging their memory and also providing a bit more information for the reader. Just remember to keep your captions brief to keep the pages from looking too crowded. 
  • Less Is More: When creating your own photo book, remember that less is more. Choose the best photos, and always avoid crowding pages.   
  • Review Your PDF: Before you send in your digital photo book for printing, take the time to review it to make sure that everything is as you intended. You can even ask a family member or close friend to go through the book as well.   

Final Thoughts 

A travel photo book is a great way for you to document your travel stories. The personalised book creation process gives you the freedom to tell your story as you wish. Once printed, these coffee table books can be great conversation starters, especially when you are entertaining guests at home.

Victor was very responsive and patient. He also gave good recommendations on how to get our print on canvas mounted on a wood frame. As i had absolutely no idea how things are done etc , his expertise helped make this job seamless! Thank you so much! To top it all, his prices are transparent and reasonable!read more

Wonderful experience. I first went into the store very tentatively, not sure if I ‘needed’ a custom made frame, however, having Victor’s consultative input on the different frame designs and customisable feature was so valuable. In the end Victor helped create a beautiful frame for my father in law’s memorial service sheets. As you can imagine, this was a sensitive thing to put in someone else’s hands but the team treated everything with such care and the finished product looks amazing.Thanks guys, would 100% recommend.read more

#aboveandbeyond Victor and the Photoland team produced the most fantastic framed photo gift for me to surprise my partner with. They combined the half marathon medal and number with a photo from the finish line - the end product far surpassed my expectations . Real customer service, great communication - no wonder they are the only photo framing place in the CBD. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again Victor.read more
