Blogger Blog: Print your own digital photo albums

Tuesday, March 27, 2007

Print your own elegant digital photo albums. OPUS Albums use glicée paper for fantasitc results!

For more information go to www.opusalbums.com

Why pay go to a photo lab and either put up with boring 6x4" prints - or pay the earth for a printed album - when you can produce beautiful bound photo albums on your inkjet printer at home?
There are so many products on the market – however you don’t see too many photo albums for digital printers.

A site which specialises in albums for you to print yourself is www.opusalbums.com.

They have several designs – and have promised more to come.

If, like me, you know what you want then I would recommend the OPUS album. This uses Innova’s paper. There offer three different papers according to your taste. There is a natural white soft textured art paper – nice feel, but it needs careful treatment and if you are printing a lot scuff might be a problem. The alternative is a high white rag paper – very smooth and with really good results. This is more of a photographic paper. These are both double sided. Then there is Innova’s flagship Fiba gloss – which professionals – especially those in monochrome seem to rave about.

To get the best you need to use a semi-professional printer. I have just invested in an Epson R1800 and this is fine. The R800 had feeding problems – it does not really like the heavy grades 250gsm plus.

I would also recommend that you use the Epson archival matte settings rather than an ICC profile. There could be exceptions, but the one I downloaded from Innova was a bit disappointing.

I have also tried the Print & Bind. This is good for the home amateur. It uses a good cast coated photo glossy paper – and you can use the standard paper settings.

OPUSalbums offers ACDSee’s FotoSlate 4 to layout the album. It is an intuitive programme and a doddle to use. A really good presentation album – with foreground and background photos can be produced in half an hour.
It’s worth a try!
