Thought I'd share my New England Fall Photo Book

Postby Pentaxguy » Tue Jan 27, 2009 10:54 pm

I found out just how easy it is to publish your own photo book, and thought I'd try it out with fall photos from Vermont and around New England. You can page through to see some of my favorite places to photograph

You can't go wrong exploring the backroads of Vermont, with many of the photos shot there. And putting your own book together is lots of fun and not all that expensive.

Hi William,
Looks to me like you did a great job on your book project. The pictures are stunning.
I don't know if it's just me or not, but I wish I could have seen the pages larger to not only get a larger view of the photos, but also I could not read the text as the print was too small.......and I really would love to be able to read the print. Is there any way to make it larger that I might have missed?
Thanks so much for sharing your book here. As I said, the images are just beautiful.
Carol

Hi Bill! Agree with both things Carol said. The photos are definitely impressive and awe-inspiring. Viewing the book at the site, it was impossible to see the print, however. :(

If it sounds too good to be true, its probably . . . .

Use the plus button.

Thanks guys for your comments. If you hit the plus (+) button on the bottom, you can enlarge the view. Click as many times as you can, then drag the image up to view the caption (as you would on a google map).


Unfortunately, you lose the detail that can actually be seen in the printed book. I think you're really only enlarging the small resolution image, but I assure you that MyPublisher prints a very good book.


It was an awful lot of fun to do. And although you may find another vendor that does the same type of job, I'm very happy with the end result from the MyPublisher folks.

Yeah, thats the problem. I did click the plus sign and lost all detail -- unfortunately, especially the narrative print
