Picaboo is a digital photo album maker that offers thousands of backgrounds, an easy-to-use interface and even has large-quantity discounts if you order several copies of the same album. The basic photo album comes with an impressive flyleaf that's made of a textured paper. You will definitely be able to create a pleasant photo album with Picaboo.
We created an album with Picaboo and had it sent to us. The front cover of the album printed beautifully with accurate colors. The album itself felt very sturdy. The pages had a nice thickness to them and the print quality within the album was very good. We did have one complaint, though: Our photo album came tightly shrink-wrapped with the plastic pushing up on the front cover, and when we unpackaged it we discovered that the plastic had permanently skewed the front cover, making it raise higher than the back cover.
Picaboo's photo albums comes in six different cover types: softcover, hardcover, linen hardcover, croc hardcover, genuine leather lay-flat and genuine leather with double-thick lay-flat. It also has five book sizes: 8 x 6, 8 x 8, 11 x 9, 12 x 12 and 14 x 11 inches. This represents a relatively standard number of size and cover options when compared to other photo album makers in our review.
Picaboo's online interface is well-designed and easy to use. Page layouts are well organized and various buttons and features are intuitively placed within the photo album creator. It’s possible to add text anywhere within the digital album, and zooming and cropping an image is an incredibly easy process. Alignment lines appear when you’re moving and resizing images so you can make sure sizes are even and equal. The one big shortcoming is the lack of an autofill button, which means that you will not be able to quickly and automatically add all of your photos to an album.
There are a lot of page layouts to choose from when designing your electronic photo album, so you will be able to find just about any arrangement imaginable. With over 10,000 background options, Picaboo boasts the largest number of backgrounds in our review. It also has a decent number of stickers to help personalize your project further.
If you have questions regarding Picaboo's digital photo album services, the site offers live chat, email and a FAQs page to help you get answers fast. Picaboo also backs its products with a 100-percent guarantee. If you would like a refund, you can get an in-store credit. If there is an error with the album, the company will fix it and send you a new product.
