Bride Box Lake Review 2012 Part 1 & GIVEAWAY (International) ($329 value) ENDED

Deals-Banner-PBG3

____________________________________________________________

Hi all you brides and grooms out there. I know a number of you have been asking me when my Bride Box Lake wedding album review was going to come out. Well here’s Part 1! I’ve decided to do it in two parts. This first part will be about the software, plus I’ll also share some of my design thoughts with you. The second part will be a review of the book itself. PLUS! I’m sure you saw “GIVEAWAY” in the title of this post right? Well, you can win a beautiful lay flat album just like mine! ($329.00 value!) Read on for details!

Skip directly to enter Giveaway

I have several wedding photo albums already (well, I am Photo Book Girl after all!) so I decided to make another album with my engagement session photos. Our photographer (Albert at SecondPrint Productions) did a great job of giving us direction but we were a bit out of our element. Posing for the camera (without looking like you’re posing) does take some getting used to – you know, acting all lovey dovey in public if that’s not what you normally do. But we did our best.

I was given this book for purposes of review by the folks at Bride Box. If you think their software looks familiar, it’s the same software as from MyPhotoCreations. Both Bride Box and MyPhotoCreations are the consumer divisions of the professional lab DigiLabs, a company that’s been around since 1997.

In particular I wanted to try out the Lake album since I’d never tried it before. According to Bride Box, the Lake is the “best of all worlds” as it’s an affordable alternative to a flush mount album. (Check out my review of Bride Box’s/MyPhotoCreations’ high end Anza flush mount album.) To clarify from the outset, there is no difference between the products offered by the two sites – they are the same but pricing and promos may differ, so be sure to see which one is running the better deal.

Here’s the specs:

Book size: 10 x 10 (width x height)
Cover: Hardcover – matte wrap-around photo cover
Pages: 60 (double-sided), professional archival Kodak E-Surface Photo Paper
Binding: Lay Flat
Price: $329.00 + $13.99 (two-day shipping) Total: $343.98 (Provided complimentary by company, I paid for shipping.) Use special coupon codes noted above to get this book for $263.00 or a 20-page album for $112.00.

Bride Box Software

The software is both Mac and PC compatible and is downloaded to your desktop. The Lake comes in three sizes: 8 x 8, 10 x 10 and 12 x 12. I personally like the 10 x 10 size. It’s just right in my opinion.

I prefer to do my own layouts instead of allowing the program to lay out my photos, but there’s no reason why you can’t try the auto layout in the event that you like it. The software prompts give the impression that your pages will be laid out for you even if you choose the “DIY” option, but it actually doesn’t lay them out. Your selected photos will be at the bottom in the holding tray ready to drag and drop.

Here’s a screenshot of the software specs. You can find basic info on all the companies on my reviews page. All of Bride Box’s products are searchable in the wizard.

Likes (b/t/w many of these “likes” were taken from my earlier software review, reprinted here for convenience)

  • Working on your book is a quick start – you don’t need to wait for a lengthy upload to begin designing;
  • You have the option of using the Photo Album Wizard to quickly design a book;
  • The “fit to page” and “fit to spread” functions allow you to instantly place a full bleed photo either onto an individual page or both across pages (the spread);
  • I’m often wary of using photo correction or editing tools within photo book programs, but I used the “Perfectly Clear” tool on a few of my photos that looked like they needed a boost and my photos printed out nicely;
  • You can multi-select the photo boxes (hold shift and click) and make changes to all the items at once which is a time-saver;
  • There are several one-click alignment tools that can be accessed by the pull down menu at the top and also by right-clicking on the photos;
  • You can save your layouts as templates to the “Page Layouts” tab at the bottom right of the workspace to reuse again;
  • You can easily swap out book styles without having to recreate the book. (Go to “Edit” pull down menu and select, “Change Book”);
  • The coordinates, measurements and resolution of the individual photo boxes and elements are instantly visible at the bottom of the workspace when you hover over each element. It’s one of the few programs I can recall that tells you the resolution of your photos and in such a convenient way. According to the company, you can probably get away with as low as 150dpi, and somewhere between that and 300dpi is better. For more on dpi and resolution check out my post.

The software is very easy to use. If you like a lot of backgrounds, there aren’t many, but you can upload your own if you find those offered limiting. Clip art is basically non-existent, but with this type of book (wedding or engagement album), I don’t recommend any clip art. In my opinion clean and simple is best. When you have professional photos taken the actual photos and the happy couple should be the focus of the album. I actually tried to add some subtle floral clip art, but it didn’t look good to me so I took it out.

Wish List Fulfilled

In my review of MyPhotoCreations’ software, I had a wish list where I noted some issues or changes I wanted to see. Looks like all of my suggestions were eventually updated in this version of the software, which is nice! I had issues previously with getting all of my computer’s fonts to work, but they all worked just fine here. I was happy to be able to use my own fonts. In particular we used Century Gothic for most of our wedding’s printed materials (invitations, signage, programs etc.) so it was nice to be able to use that same font in my album for cohesiveness. Also, I had mentioned that you could only place a photo across the center of the spread if it completely covered both pages (a full-page spread) but I also wanted to be able to place a smaller photo across both pages. Now you can do that.

Design Tips

Since the software allows you to save a proof to your desktop, I’m able to show you an overview of my entire book. Page 1 is the front cover and page 62 is the back cover. Pages 2 & 3 make up the first spread.

 

Photo Book Girl’s Wedding/Engagement Photo Album Design Tips

  • Keep it simple. Clean layouts showcasing only one or a few photos is best. Too many photos on a page can get overwhelming and look visually cluttered;
  • Although you can choose to lay out your photo boxes anywhere you want because the software allows for full customization, aligning your photos looks neater. You can use the program’s alignment tools to make sure the boxes line up on top and on the sides in relation to the other photo boxes on the page;
  • Keep your backgrounds clean, again your intent is to showcase the photos. If you do choose backgrounds, try to stick to a complementary palette to your photos. You can see that I stuck primarily with neutrals like black (one of my faves), brown, cream, grey and a few punches of green. Since we took our photos in the park and in a greenhouse, the color green worked well with my photos;
  • If you really like a particular photo, then highlight it by giving it its own two-page spread – you can see I did that for several pages including 22 – 23; 34 – 35; 48 – 49 and 56 – 57. Note however, when you do a full two-page spread some of your image can get cut off. If the part that gets cut off is a necessary part of the photo, or the photo doesn’t look good cropped in that way, you can do a “modified” two-page spread like I did on pages 22 – 23. Just add a background;
  • If you do a full-page spread where your images goes across both pages, normally I caution against having someone’s head in the center, but since this is a lay flat book with no gutter (the pages fold in the center versus having an actual gap), it can actually work. Regardless, I wouldn’t recommend having someone’s face in the gap. The back of the head looks okay though;
  • On pages 58 – 59 I did a “collage” – I often like to do a page which gives the highlights of the book (these photos are repeated elsewhere in the book in larger form). In this case I put it at the end, sometimes I put it at the beginning as a “teaser”;
  • Having a 60-page book doesn’t mean you have to make 60 different backgrounds. I’m a big proponent of reusing layouts to save time and to give a cohesiveness to the book. (You can even save layouts in this program for reuse in a later book (they are saved under “Custom layouts”). See “Save Page as Layout” (under the File menu at top.) Notice how 14 – 15 and 30 -31 are the same exact layout. It’s spaced out far enough from the first one to not look monotonous.

    If I won this entry, I would finally make my wedding album. We have been married for a year and a half, and although I have made albums for our parents… I just haven’t had the time, money, or courage to make one for us! This would be perfect, and would take a lot of the lingering stress off!

    I am already a fan and just subscribed to your news letter (Kristy). If I won, I would put together our wedding album. My husband and i were married 5 years ago. we received our digital pictures, but the photographer skipped out on us and never completed our album. I have been looking for the best yet affordable photo book company ( which brought me to your site) in order to make the book. My husband gets so upset when he thinks about it – he wants a album even more than I do!
