Step 1. Choose the theme of the book
Always keep your theme centre and front when you are collecting the images for your project. Of course, you should pick what you like, but there really isn’t any point in including pictures of friends or extended family. This book is about the two of you. Good themes are, of course, love, your story, your best moments, or the things you love about your partner.
Step 2.Pick the right service for you
There are lots and lots of photo book services out there. If you don’t have a favourite, it can be hard to make a decision. Instead of going from website to website, look at deal websites to find the right photo book and choose the company based on that.
Step 3: Choose the paper, layout, size, and cover of your Valentine’s Photo Book
There are a lot of choices to make, even after you’ve picked the book. Keep in mind that Valentine’s Day is not about the amount of money you spend but rather the thought you put into your gift. Size is not all that counts. A very good impression can be made with a photo cover, for example showing a picture of the two of you or a word cloud summarising all the things you love about your partner.
Step 4: Choose your photos
There’s no doubt that choosing which photos to use in your photo book might be the best part of this project. You get to choose and collect artistic gems and precious memories. Don’t rush at this stage; take the time and arrange your pictures. Don’t forget your theme and be sure to choose pictures that have a good resolution so they look their best once printed.
You also don’t have to choose only photos. If you want to be creative, you can take screenshots of conversations and include them in your book.
Step 5: Organise the Photo Book
Organising your Valentine’s Photo Book is where you will get to play with design and layouts. Pretty much all photo book software offers themes and designs you can use to get things started and give the book a professional look and feel. Usually, you can also have the software place your photos in chronological order automatically, which could really save you some time, especially if you’re telling your very own love story.
Step 6: Include your loving words
We all know a picture can say more than 1,000 words, but when it comes to your relationships, words are much more valuable. Be sure to use pages or just little text boxes to describe your photos and express your feelings. It will show your partner how much effort you put into your Valentine’s Day gift and be a special item in their collection.
