There’s nothing quite like looking through a printed photo album – to see a photo for the first time or look back at favourite memories. That’s why we’re proud to offer personalised photo books that can be cherished for years to come. Available in a variety of sizes and layouts, these albums make it easy to showcase wedding, holiday or family images – whether you’re creating your own personal library or sharing the love with friends and family.

Feeling inspired? You’ll create your album using your choice of design editors – an online (and mobile-friendly) option or a downloadable editing program you can use on your computer. (To learn more about these options, see our Design Editors section.) Whichever editor you prefer, we’ll walk you through the process step by step – or choose our Smart Assistant, which can quickly pick out your best photos, design layouts and create a beautiful book you’ll love. Once you’re feeling great about your design, we will professionally print, bind and package your photo book. Your custom creation will arrive looking crisp, polished and ready to become a heartwarming classic.

Frequently Asked Questions

We will deliver your photo book to you within 10 business days.

We can only deliver photo books to UK and Ireland currently.

Yes. We offer a mobile version of our online editor, which can help you design and order your photo book on your smartphone or tablet. Our download (offline) editor is not available on mobile devices.

Our Smart Assistant is technology designed to help you quickly create a book you’ll love. After you’ve provided your photos, it uses special smart technology to pick the best images, remove duplicates and create high-quality page layouts. The Smart Assistant works in just minutes – and you’ll be able to make any changes you’d like, add custom touches and more.

It depends on which editor you’re using. If you use our offline editor, you’ll be able to change your size if you change your mind along the way. If you’re using our online editor, you’ll be asked to select your alum size early in the process – and once you start designing, the size can’t be changed. If you’d like a different size, you’ll need to start a new photo book.

Yes. Just give us a call – we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have along the way. We want you to love your album.

You can use JPEG (.jpg), BMP, PNG and various RAW files.

4Mb is the maximum size we recommend for an individual photo. Anything larger than this may cause problems as you upload your album. That said, there are no limits to the file size of the album itself.

The process varies slightly based on which of our design editors you’d like to use.

Download (Offline) Editor: This editor is our most popular – when you install this photo book maker on your computer, it will guide you through the entire process. (Download is quick and easy – less than 3 minutes). After you select your photo book’s size, the editor will help you add photos directly from your computer onto the book. Work is saved to your computer – when your design is finished, the program will upload the book to our site so that you can complete your order. The Download Editor also includes an assortment of extra design options, especially helpful if you’re interested in adding a lot of custom detail to your album.

Online Editor: With our online design tool, you’ll be able to design your entire book online, no downloads required. Upload photos from your computer and then place them onto the pages as you’d like.

Yes, both of our editing tools allow you to save a design and come back to it later. We recommend saving your work early and often.

Download (Offline) Editor: When you save your design, the work is stored on the computer itself. You’ll be able to make updates up until you click the Order button.

Online Editor: Your work will be saved to your Vistaprint account. Make sure you’re logged in before you start designing, and don’t clear the cookies on your browser until you’ve ordered your album.

The program is available for Mac and Windows systems, including Windows 10. For Mac OS X users, version 10.6 or higher is required. For PC users, the minimum requirements for installing the software on your computer are: CPU 1.8 GHz, RAM 512 MB, Video RAM 64 MB. For Windows Vista, we recommend you have at least 1024 MB of internal memory – otherwise the software will operate slowly.

This comes down to a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer the classic look of black and white photography – especially for formal events like weddings and graduations. Colour photographs are a great way to show off vivid landscapes in travel albums or capture the fun of birthday parties and family get-togethers. Or, you can get the best of both worlds and use different approaches within different album spreads. The choice is yours!

Consider our 28 x 21 cm landscape photo book. It’s our most popular (and recommended) option for major milestones like weddings, yearbooks and more.
