    You already know blurb and you have CO8 which you can print to PDF with (if you are on Mac). Anything else you need?

    Hi,
    I would prefer a program that produces 'good looking' books without too much manual effort. I have done blurb books and if you want to have a somewhat decent looking photo book it takes substantial effort.
    Cheers,

    I use Blurb and their own software and find the results of very high quality - and, judging by my sales, so do my buyers!

    My only recommendation is to order one copy first to act as a proof. I found the images slightly dark so I lightened them a little for the print run. Blurb's own tutorials, FAQs are very useful.

    The only drawback I found is that magentas take a decidedly "dark" shift - Blurb simply can't reproduce them properly, even if I try extra processing or saturation.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks, Bill. I have done a blurb book lately, mostly text. I looked at the current Mac software they have and what it does not seem to do is autoflow images - one or two per page. Or do you know how to do this?

    Hi, I would like to highlight http://www.pixellu.com/ product, simple and support most of printing companies around the world. There auto layouts are awesome, and saves so much time when doing albums.
    Hope that helps

    Hi Andriy,
    Wow, that is it. Great, this is exactly what I was looking for - and seems to be the time saver of the millenium.
    Best,
