Make your own Photo Book online
Photo Books for any occasion
There are lots of occasions but a personalised photo book is always a good gift idea. We know that sometimes you create custom photo books without any particular occasion, e.g. as a souvenir for yourself or your loved ones. The books, then, may include photos from many years back – holidays, family reunions and trips. Photos taken in every season. Which template to choose then? To make the decision and the designing process easier, we have created a few templates that will definitely go well with all sorts of photos. A customised photo book, the one in your favourite colour and with matching ornaments, filled with your carefully selected photos will definitely make an exceptionally sentimental keepsake. You don’t need a special occasion such as a wedding, birth of a child, crazy holiday, etc. to create it. It’s worth creating even with regular photos which we collect over the years from seemingly insignificant events.
Make your own Photo Book with unique background
Every template can be modified at choice. Your final project may even look nothing like the template you started with. Together with our Design Team we try to diversify our templates to make it easier for you to prepare and then order the book. We match the colours, patterns and layout to highlight the colours and the vibe of the added photos. We have also prepared a few templates in which we tried to leave some more space for text and your comments or stories. A personalised Photo Book with text should be really well-organised and thought-through so it is still clear and the pages are not cluttered with all the elements.
A Photo Book with text
All photo book templates can be freely modified. One of the various options which our editor offers is incorporating text. You can choose the size and alignment of the text as well as style and color of the font. To simplify the process of creating a photo book even further we’ve prepared templates with spaces intended for different amounts of text.
- Templates with short descriptions – 'Memorable Quotes' and 'Photo Story' both have minimal patterns with photos on a white background and textboxes for short captions or inspiring quotations. Such photo book is perfect if you like to have your photos captioned. No family gathering or hangout with friends will ever be overpowered by an argument of who is on the photo and when it was taken.
- Portfolio template – 'Booklet' is a minimal and modern template with which you can divide your photos into categories. Each category is graphically marked with a space in which you can describe it and shortly caption your photos. Thanks to clear categories this template will be a particularly good choice if you are a computer graphic designer or a photographer.
- Business template – 'Business'. A template with neutral colors and decorations required during official business meetings. It’s got a big textbox – the text can take the whole page or a significant part of it so it can be a combination of a portfolio with a letter of application or CV.
Questions and answers about Photo Book
What kinds of photo books are there in our offer?
A matt or a glossy photo book? Both types of covers are available in our offer. After you've added your project to cart, you can change the standard glossy cover to matt. You can also upgrade your cover by choosing it to be sponge-padded, which will make the book softer in touch and generally more attractive as a whole. Those options can be chosen together or separately. Both add-ons generate extra cost and the amount is calculated in the basket per every copy.
Which photo book from our offer is the best?
It all depends on what you need! Our photo books are available in a couple of versions so that you can find the best option for you. Are you planning an occasion that requires a special setting, such as a birthday or a wedding? Choose the Exclusive photo book with eco-leather or textile binding and a photo slot on the front cover, or, the Starbook, the star among photo books, with its sponge-filled hardcover. Would you like your book to have a personalised cover? Then our bestsellers, the Classic photo book, which is available in a wide range of formats, and its smaller "friend", the A5 softcover photo book, will be perfect for you. The Sharebook is also a very interesting choice, consisting of 50 digitally printed images in the form of a 10x15cm book. The images in the Sharebook can be torn out and shared with others - which means a lot of fun!
What formats are available?
Our photo books are available in a few formats. Starbooks and Exclusive photo books are available as A4 (horizontal and vertical), 20x20 and 30x30cm. The Classic photo book (hardcover) can be also ordered in a square format of 24x24cm, A5 and A3 horizontal. Our A5 is the only softcover book in our offer.

Can I start a project without a template?
Do you like doing everything 'your way'? Choose the Blank Theme and create your photo book from scratch. To start such a project, click on the blue button placed above the ready-made templates. Set the format, the number of pages and go for it! On the left side of the editor there are a few tabs that will help you choose proper backgrounds, clip art, layouts, masks and frames. On the right side though, there are icons that will help you add empty photo slots, text and modify the current layout.
Can I create and print a photo book with pictures from Facebook?
Pictures can be uploaded directly from your device (PC/laptop) or straight from Facebook. If you'd like to use pictures that have been uploaded to your previous projects, you can do so by choosing to upload from 'My Orders'. If you're uploading from your computer, divide your photos into sets of 40 photos each. Pictures will upload faster this way (uploading 200 photos at once may considerably slow the editor down).
Can I autofill my project with photos?
You're not one of those people who like spending lots of time on designing a photo book? We've got a perfect solution. Use the autofill option and the time you've saved can be spent on perfecting the whole design! How does it work? After you've uploaded all the photos, click on 'Autofill' and the pages of your project will be populated with your photos. The 'Autofill' button is placed just above the thumbnails. When using autofill, please remember that: 1. Pictures will be placed in the order they were uploaded to the editor, hence while ordering pictures on your computer, put them in the order you want them to appear in the project. 2. You have to make sure you've uploaded enough photos. It may happpen that there are too few or too may pictures in proportion to photo slots. Make sure there are no empty photo slots/empty pages at the end of the book. 3. 'Autofill' is just a program and it does not recognise faces. Before you place an order, make sure the pictures are properly cropped.
How can I add text to the photo book?
Add your own text and make your photo book even more special. By adding text, you're giving context to your photos and making the book more interesting. Additional information is practical, too. After many years it's sometimes difficult to remember all the facts. You can be minimalistic about it and add only the date and the place. If you have more time - you can add short sentences or the whole story! When designing a photo book you can use the text fields that are the original parts of the template or you can add your own with the use of the icon 'A+' placed on both sides of the project. When the text field is on the page, it's enough to double-click on it. A drop-down menu, where the style, colour and the font size can be chosen, will appear.
How can I change the number of pages in my photo book project?
Not enough space fot your favourite photos? You can add more pages to your project! In the bottom right corner there's a little menu which gives you three options – duplicate, remove or add blank page. Each time you choose one of these options, you remove or add two pages (single pages cannot be removed, added, duplicated). While modifying the book, please remember that our books cannot have fewer than 28 and more than 160 pages.
Can I order a photo book without the Colorland's logo?
As a standard we place our logo on the back cover. You can order a book without it by choosing such an option in the basket. Important: this option will generate extra cost and, due to identification purposes, the barcode below it cannot be removed.
How to create a photo book with the highest print quality?
You're not sure if your photos are good quality? Use the 'smart colour correction' add-on that recognises those photos which need to be corrected in terms of being too dark or bright. It additionally enhances faded colours. Another available option is our 7C Premium Print. This printing technique allows more natural colours and makes the raster less visible (pictures are not pixelated). It's possible thanks to a wide gamut. Apart from the 4 basic colours that are used in printing, 7C incorporates 3 additional shades – Light Cyan, Light Magenta and Light Light Black. The high quality will especially be seen in the darker parts of the photo – you can distinguish elements that wouldn't be visible on a regular print. Bright colours will aslo look better due to delicate tonal transition. Such elements of the picture as faces and skin in general will definitely look better.
