About this Event

Workshop

Do you have a computer full of digital photographs that you do not know what to do with or have the time to? You may have decades of precious family photos from events like weddings, holidays, concerts, birthdays - all probably mounting up and trapped inside your computer waiting to get out. Well now is the time to bring your pictures to life!

Photo Books make great gift ideas for Christmas; significant birthdays; anniversaries; baby year books; capturing holidays as well as making great product or artist portfolios.

 With a little know how you can turn your digital library into beautiful personalised photo books, stationery, posters, calendars, wall art and much more. 

This workshop only has 4 places to ensure personalised tuition to all group members and is suitable for anyone without any experience of photo editing or using custom templates to create Photo books. We will be using one of the well known commercial on-line printing companies; either Snapfish, PhotoBox or Blurb.
