I had so many requests last week to show how to create Photo Book layouts (like the one I did for my trip to Turkey, Greece, and Egypt), that I did three short videos for you (below), to show you how, but using different applications. The three videos are:

  1. How to create them in Apple’s iPhoto
  2. How to create them in Lighroom 2
  3. How to create them from scratch in Photoshop CS4 using Smart Objects

Click on the videos to watch them. Hope this helps jump start you into making photo books, because once you start, you’ll be totally hooked!

The iPhoto Video:

NOTE: If you’d like to see a higher quality version of these videos, click on the links below, which will take you each video’s page on YouTube.com. Just below the bottom right corner of the video (which is already larger in size on YouTube.com), you’ll see a link called “Watch in Higher Quality.” Click that to see a much sharper, and larger version of each video.
