    If you mean those crappy photobooks just download the software from whichever book site you need, real albums are assembled by hand and imo bear no resemblance to photobooks. H

    I moved this to the 'shop talk' section. The Professional Gallery...is a gallery for showing images. ;)

    If you know your way around Photoshop, putting together an album isn't too hard. But there are plenty of programs specifically for making albums, which might be a little more user friendly for this type of work.

    Many album companies actually have their own software. Asukabook for example, has Asukabook Maker. GraphiStudio has a album design software that you can download.
    The local lab that I use, uses the ROES system for ordering their products and there is album design capabilities right in ROES.

    Other options I've heard about...
    LumaPix FotoFusion (seems to be the favorite)
    Photojunction Remix (I think it's free)
    Page Gallery from Yervant
    Pixel Creator (I think it's a PS plug-in type application).

    You need to have a better understanding of what is available out there before you make a statement like this.

    I have been using Asuka Book for a few years now and they produce a Top Notch product that give unique options for my clients and have recently proven to be very popular with younger couples that do not want a traditional album.

    yeah, im from the "younger generation" myself and i prefer the book over the album. Not to say that albums aren't nice, just the book seem to have a more proffesional feel to it. Looks cool too

    If you google ablum makers, there are variety out there.
    When putting an album together, a lot depends on what client wants, the cheaper alternative is using LAB's templates and leaving it as is. It is cheaper for the client and less headache for me. The more expensive (for client), more profitable (for me) and MUCH MORE HEADACHE (for me), is making it from scratch to the client's need.
