Any ideas? I want to put together a photo book for my sainted Aunt and Uncle of pictures of my new grandson.

I have tried Shutterfly............I think their interface is so very frustrating. I have looked at Kodak.....

Anyone have any suggestions (besides buying a mac)

Thanks in advance.:encore:

Have you tried any local shops with on-line photo services? I sometimes get my photos printed at Walgreen's, and they have photo books also. My only experience is with iPhoto, but I think that is Mac-only.

Oh I didn't even think of that. Good idea.
And, iPhoto is only for macs. :(

try picaboo.com (http://www.picaboo.com/) I know several moms who LOVE them. You can also try snapfish.com (http://snapfish.com) they do photo books but I've never tried any books from them, just photos.

http://www.photobookamerica.com -- I have a friend who has used the Canadian site and has had good results.

I did a book of my trip to Italy on Snapfish, and I'm thrilled with it. I liked the themes and layouts for multiple photos better than the ones that Shutterfly had to offer.

another site I frequent published a cookbook using Blurb. I think they do photobooks too.

I checked Photobucket.com (http://photobucket.com/) since they offer free accounts but Photobucket also uses the Kodak Gallery for ordering photo books.
