What a great idea!
Have your photos printed and bound into a photobook that looks as if it has been printed professionally. Don't you just love technology? You can use them for presentations, weddings, baby photos, holidays - the list goes on.
In most cases all you have to do is to upload your images (and don't forget that you can scan in all your old photos on to your computer now with brilliant results - in most cases old photos are much clearer than the originals) and then leave the rest to them.
