Photoworks is a free website where people can upload their digital photos and share them, buy individual copies, or make and buy a special photo book. We don’t have a photo printer yet, so all of my digital pictures are stored on my computer. I was excited to participate in a Mom Central review of Photoworks for this reason. We were asked to create a baby book on their website.
First, they ask you to sign up, which is free and short. They have a big selection of baby albums, so it was fun to choose. I immediately picked Noah’s Ark, because that is our baby’s name. ( JUST CLICK ON ALL OF THE PHOTOS BELOW FOR A CLOSER VIEW)

After choosing your album, I followed the instructions to upload pictures for it. I am used to doing this every day, so for me it that is an easy process. For newbies, there are directions that are easy to follow.

Once your photos are loaded, they will show at the top of the screen for selection. The next step is to choose which photo you want on each page and to add text. This is easily done by clicking on the photo you want and dragging it into the empty box. If it isn’t the correct size, a ! will appear and tell you to choose a picture that will fit. For the text, just click on the text box and type it in. This is the front cover picture I chose.

Here is another example of one of the other pages. On each page it is the same proccess, click and drag.

I was happy with the process. It was easy to follow and user friendly. The click and drag process is impressive. This is a lot easier then scrapbooking, not to mention a time saver. I don’t think I could afford to do this for every picure, but i would happily pay for an album for each child because their pictures are a treasured keepsake.
