Personalized Photo Books - please help!

Jump to last reply

I just ordered a personalized photo book from .mac for my scotland photos - and it was very convenient, easy to use. I have a mac, so it was great that I didn't have to put the book together online. I could just do it on my computer - and I was happy that it gave me options on typefaces, layout, etc. So I thought this was the solution to all my agonizing photo problems (ie, ordering prints but never putting them in an album).

So I got the book yesterday in the mail. The delivery was speedy. The outside of the book is beautiful, with a linen cover. It is a bound book, and is quite nice (coffee table worthy). But, to be honest I am a little dissapointed with the quality of the pictures inside. The pictures are slightly grainy and not as crisp as I was hoping for. I want them to be photo-quality, sharp and crisp. They look a little fuzzy, and I am unsure whether this is from the paper, printing method, or if its my camera. My camera is 3megapixels, which I would think would be sufficient for this task, but maybe not?

I want to salvage this, I WANT to make photo books, I think they will be my photo salvation.... But I want better quality than this. Does anyone have any knowledge of personalized photo books? Have you made one- if so where? How did it come out? Any particular book you were really impressed with? Does anyone have any knowledge about the types of paper/printing methods the different sites use? Anyone know if it could just be my camera?
Anyone know of a site that rates the different photo books available?
Thanks everyone!
