This post is the first in a series of How to Make Your Own Digital Photo Book (the Photo Book Girl way!) The series will give you a look at how I create the photo books that I use to write reviews for this site. You’ll get a look at my personal photo book workflow, my top photo book making tips and yes, learn from my mistakes. The goal is to help newbies get started and to share and exchange tips with more advanced photo book users.
