hi guys. my wife just recently tried out the photo book feature of ofoto. we were so excited when it arrived, but to our dismay, half the book was botched up! :confused: pictures werent auto-fitted so it looked cropped in an unsightly fashion; captions were cut and the printouts seemed darker than what they should be. :eek: needless to say, we will be returning the book. but we still like the idea though of being able to make a photo book. any suggestions as to other sites offering the service with better results? :D

iPhoto for mac has the feature of letting you design pretty amazing looking photobooks. However, I beleive it is the same kodak processing that ofoto uses.

I agree, the books from iPhoto are really nice! They are easy to assemble and submit online for printing. Quality is excellent. The photos in the book always come back looking just like the preview, so there are no surprises. Unfortunately, I placed an order for some of their new soft-cover books back on 1/30 and the status of my order still says "printing". It has been over two weeks when it should only take 3-4 days to print them. As upset as I am with the slow process, I haven't been able to find another company that offers similar high quality products. So I guess I'll just have to wait!
