A new year is beginning, and whether we’re still recovering from the festive period or already getting stuck into our new year’s resolutions, there’s one thing everyone is doing: scrolling through photos and reminiscing about the year left behind… the sunny holidays, the celebrations, the funny moments, the lazy weekends, the Christmas party – all the memorable events that have brought us happiness and joy.
Those photos are some of the most precious things we will ever own, so why do so many of us leave them to languish on phones or hard drives? Photos are taken to be seen, loved and admired – so it’s our duty to print them out and cherish them in the real world! Whether you’re sticking your favourite pictures in frames on the mantelpiece, making a giant canvas for that empty wall, or creating fridge magnets and mouse mats out of them, it’s time to set your photos free!
Want to know our top tip for all those lovely photos? Create a 2018 photo book! Here are just a few reasons why we think photo books are the best things ever invented, and why you need to make one today…
One of the best things about a photo book is that it’s enjoyable to create. There’s real delight to be had in choosing the photos and page layouts and creating a look and feel for your photo displays. And after all that, there’s the wonderfully satisfying feeling of seeing it all come together in a professional-looking finished product. A proper book, created by you, containing all your photos – you can’t beat the feeling!

While we love a good old-fashioned photo album, there are some real advantages to photo books. For a start, the photos can’t fall out, and there’s no fiddling about with stickers or protective film. And, unlike a traditional photo album, a photo book also means you can have more copies made easily. When you buy a photo book, Jessops will keep a digital copy of the book, so you can replace it if anything happens to the original. It’s a book you’ll never lose!

The simple photo book creation process means it’s easy for you to design and order your photo book today. With quick delivery, your high-quality photo book will be winging its way to you before you can say ‘happy new year’.
1. Choose the type of book you want. A landscape design will look great on a coffee table, while a portrait style is perfect for a photo collection that will easily fit on a bookshelf. The extra large photo books are an excellent choice for a very special occasion where you’ve got loads of images to include, while mini books are great for carrying around with you. And a square photo book is ideal for turning your Instagram and digital photos into printed keepsakes.
2. Upload your photos. There’s no limit – you can have as many as you want (you’ll need at least 20 to make a book). Once you’ve done that, choose your page designs and other customisations. If you’re not sure exactly what you want, the automatic page layout is great for first-time users. It’ll put your photos into your book in chronological order and you can then move and swap them around, add or remove them, and put in text and embellishments. You can then customise each page, choosing things like backgrounds and borders, until you’re completely happy with it.
3. Order your book! It really is that easy. Remember, Jessops Photosmiths are available instore or online if you get stuck.
