Seeing as Apple Photos is discontinuing its photobook services, I suggest Mimeo Photos extension to make your photo projects directly from your Mac Photos app. They make it really easy with a lot of great themes to choose from. Plus I love the creativity and flexibility I have to make my photobook the way I want it to look.
thanks for the update. from your review, it seems like you are reviewing general book printers company. i would say there are much more better photobook printing providers online. where they focus more on quality instead of quantity.
to name a few:
Artifact uprising - great quality and shipping
milkbooks - hand made book with fine material
Flipchap - Hand made photobook and wedidng album, they are focusing on product options, like paper, color, material, finishing touch and fine detail.
Snapfish either used crappy paper, or purposely lowered the color saturation settings on my ten photo books intended as Christmas presents. The colorful landscapes looked closer to black and white! The front and rear cover, done on glossy paper, were reasonably accurate, so their claim that I didn't review the online proof is false.
This is the main reason why I'm reluctant to use online services when it comes to making photo books or photo albums - your privacy has gone as soon as you upload your personal photos. And which is why I prefer using desktop programs. For instance, Photo Collage Maker. It now has an option of creating photo books, a very engaging process: http/ams-collage.com/how-to-make-a-photo-book.php . Customizable themed templates were made by a professional designer. A user can order their pictures as they like and add text captions to make it a story.
