My CEWE Photobook looks great, despite reservations whether the Adobe Elements upload does not have all the ordering options of the Photoworld route, everything looked great with hardback cover and 'standard' printing paper.
I am very happy with the product although it was very expensive.
The software was easy to use in comparison to other companies.
It took a week for production and for some reason a week for delivery. Once the product has been sent for delivery you receive an email notifying you. This email gives an option to track your package, however in fact it simply states it has been dispatched which was the purpose of the email in the first place. Not a very satisfactory system for a slow delivery service.
I started to create a photo book with a different company and found it very frustrating as I could not zoom in to photos or edit text at all, even though I would class myself as reasonably good with all things technical, so I googled 'user friendly photo book' and found Photoworld.... and user friendly it is!
My only worry before the photo book arrived was whether the quality of the product would be up to scratch. I need not have worried as the book arrived yesterday and it is even better quality than expected. Ridiculously easy to create, edit and order and really great quality (I ordered an A4 size with matt photo paper). Thankyou Photoworld! I will definitely use Photoworld again and I would recommend to anyone.
i really liked the softwae and felt it to be easy to use - I like the product - however I am disappointed with the quality
The Photoworld photo book product arrived very promptly and looked simply fantastic. As a souvenir of my Mum's safari in Africa it is perfect, looking and feeling like a published book. She was in tears on receiving it. Well worth the price.
Thank you Photoworld.
I've only every used Photoworld and Jessops (who appear to use same facility) to produce Photo books and have always been pleased with results. The CeWe software is easy to use and album is usually returned with in 4 working days of submission. They appear to have changed their printer recently since results are even better than before.
I ordered a photobook as a present for my cousin in America. When it arrived, it was just as expected, filled with high-quality prints of our old family photos, all in a nicely-bound hardback book.
A really nice gift for my cousin.
The only reason this is not a five star review is that it took over a week for the item to arrive after the email telling me it had been dispatched. Okay, there was a bank holiday Monday, as one of those days, but still, at a fiver for post & packaging, I'd expected faster delivery.
Anyway, not to dwell too much on the one minor negative, if you are looking to have your photos transferred to something a lot more permanent, then you should seriously consider Photoworld for the following reasons:
The software is WYSIWYG - What you see is what you get.
The software was very intuitive - easy and fun to use.
Planning your book couldn't be easier - the hardest decision is which photos to include and where they will be in the book.
The product is of excellent quality (I went for the Matt paper option, as I think it's both a better finish and there's less glare from overhead lights than glossy paper.
Use photoworld if you need a photobook. I'm considering putting our wedding photos in a book now.
The software is very user friendly and gives great flexibility with layout and editing. The books are great quality and good value for money.
This is the best online photo book service I have used by far!
Just received my softcover photobook. Great book and very good quality. The pictures look exactly like the originals. Will use the service again and will definitly show off the finished book and recommend the service. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was the softcover binding (thought it would be stronger paper/cardboard) but it looks very nice. Keep up the good work!
Quality prints, excellent service, very fast delivery. What more could you ask for? Oh yes, a great price too. Thank you.
the booklet was of a family party. the pictures came out lovely and looks professional. i did have a few teething problems with the website at first but i managed to sort that out and was very happy with the end result, and so were my family x
This book is great so much easier to keep my memories alive than a normal photo album. It's definitely a great talking point also all my friends and family enjoy looking at it. I am not boring anyone with it and we all look at it often.it is the second one I have as the first one was a present I knew nothing about and it was a lovely surprise.
I love photoworld's photo book because I can put my photo's in the book in any size and order I choose to. The soft wear is really easy to use. The delivery was very prompt and I received an email before telling me it had been dispatched. The product itself is very high quality and I am very very pleased with it.
thank you photoworld
Done several large landscape photobooks. Always impressed by how well the images come out. Black page backgrounds look good. Good discount deals occasionally, so well worth having nicely done pre-prepared books ready to exploit when the deals are announced, otherwise a lot of time pressure (40% deal expires shorthly). Sowtware didnt work with my Wacom mouse. I wish the Adobe Lightroom interface linked to CEWE (photoworld), as well as Blurb.
I was thrilled with the 2 small pocket books I'd ordered for my friends to thank them for all the work they'd done for our charity. They were very easy and quick to make and were delivered much quicker than I had expected. They look very professional and make me look very clever!
This firm produce excellent quality professional books which knock other coffee table books into touch. Customer Service exceeds expectations - nothing is a bother and any difficulty is ironed out quickly. I would recommend them to anyone.
I really enjoyed putting the Cewe photobook together. It was easy to use and plenty of options available to let my artistic side out!!
The final book was really wonderful to see in print and the quality is great.
Some of the photos are darker than I expected. It would be perfect (only a minor issue) if there was a way of warning users that the picture is dark - it is such a subjective thing I'm not sure how this could be resolved technically. Alternatively, if the preview pane could show a more true likeness of what will be printed perhaps I might have lightened it before adding to the photobook.
Also I only had 58 pages (which is actually quite thin) but I used a lot of photos so my computer became very slow and crashed several times. It may not be related but my computer doesn't work at all now.
All-in-all I think CEWE photobooks are really good; fast service and really great quality, and would recommend them to anyone.
I was impressed with the standards of customer care from the start. I had a few problems to begin with but there was a quick response to my e-mails. The software was intuitive and ran effectively with no glitches. When my photo book arrived I was impressed with the quality but then discovered I had made the same mistake (text) in several places. Customer care was helpful and promised 100% satisfaction. I had to correct the errors of course and send the original item back and re-submit. The final result was worth the extra care. Thank you.
I recently ordered several books I found it easy to upload photos, create my own pages and text. The only problem encountered was when I ordered I had to transfer the photos 3 times as there was a 'system error' not sure if that was computer or their system but it eventually worked. The photobooks were delivered 3 days later, the quality excellent and good value for money as they had an offer on at the time. I would definitely use them again.
I produced a 'holiday of a lifetime' album and although it was my first time and it took me a while to get the hang of it, the result was professional and looked like I had bought the book of the shelf of a book store. Don't worry about making mistakes, they are easy to rectify, once I realised you could just drag your photos onto the pages and change the views manually. I will definitely use this again. One tip, if you are offered a discount on the homepage, write it down as it does not automatically come off at the end of the order.
The print & paper quality is absolutely first class, and with a good discount offer this represents good value. Unfortunately, the product is let down by delivery times. Having received an email that the order was dispatched it took a week for delivery. I know yesterday was a bank holiday but I would suggest you replace Parcel Force with a company that can work a bit faster...............
Otherwise I would rate this 5*
(Purchased 3 photo-books, printed on glossy photo paper)
I adore the personalised gift ideas. Recently I purchased an iPhone cover and cushion, which both turned out better than I had expected.
Would love to have the option of getting t-shits made.
Website was very easy to navigate and uploading my pictures was easy. I bought a poster sized picture of my dog (50x70) and the quality is amazing. One star down Only due to delivery taking a while and there's no option to pay for quicker delivery, but otherwise great service.
Really good price due to the 40 % off offer, very good quality of both photo canvases and acrylic and got order delivered to my work place within 3 days. Love it.
I had only one 85-year-old photograph of a family group. It was in poor condition (sepia, browned further by tobacco smoke and dust from the days of pipe-smoking and thatched houses). I photographed the photograph to crop it and then altered it from sepia to black and white. Then I uploaded the image to Photoworld for a big enlargement (poster type) to fit a large, painting-size frame. The Photoworld software correctly advised me that the uploaded image was only "adequate" but I was very pleased with the poster when it arrived, packaged safely and delivered promptly. I would be happy to use Photoworld again.
This was the first time I had created a photo book so I was not sure what to expect. Everything was great and I was very pleased. Thank you so much it will make a very lovely present for my friend to celebrate a big Birthday!
We were so pleased we ordered our wedding photo book with you. The finished result is fantastic - very professional and an excellent price to match!
Thanks for making all our memories of our special day come to life and last forever!
As the photo book was for a special occasion, I was a little anxious as to whether the results would be good enough. I shouldn't have worried - the book was a great success and my parents loved it. Photoworld's online program made producing the book so easy; I know I will use it again and again.
Ordered two 30x40 black and white prints at under £7 each. Much lower then the competition and arrived in less then five working days. Very pleased and would use again.
