Photo books are a great way to display and preserve your memories, and services like iBooks and Blurb make it easy and affordable to create professional quality bound books. But your design choices are what make them special. Join designer Nigel French as he covers the basics of planning and building a photo book, reviews the qualities of good photo books, and examines the design principles at work in their creation—regardless of the software used. This course provides both inspiration and practical techniques for creating your photo book.
So that brings us to the end of this short course on designing a photo book. Before I leave you, I'd like to draw your attention to this PDF of resources that is a free download in the exercise files folder. Here you'll find links to the major photo book sites, links to useful sites on different aspects of photo book history and technique. And also to other courses on lynda.com that will allow you to go deeper in such aspects as Photoshop, Lightroom, typography, and color management.
I'm Nigel French. Thanks for watching. Goodbye for now.
