Landscape L photobook
£37.70*, $54.22 Postage: £4.95, $16.93 Delivery time: six working days www.albelli.co.uk This photobook looks tempting with its base price of just £24.95 for 24 pages. That is until you realise a photo cover – usually standard from most printers – adds an extra £4.95. We also specced Layflat Premium paper at £0.25 per page.
The resulting heavyweight pages, with their lustre finish, resist fingerprints and show off Albelli’s generally high print quality. Apart from some slightly pale skin tones in our portrait test shot, colour and contrast accuracy are bang on. Printing resolution is more average, however, with droplet patterns noticeable under close scrutiny.
It’s hard to fault Albelli’s photobook creation software. You can choose between a well-designed online creator, and downloadable software that delivers a great balance between ease of use and lots of features.
Pros Intuitive creation software with good features; satisfactory print quality. Cons
Photo cover not included in low price; a few minor print quality niggles. We say
Close to a winning package, but falls slightly short on print quality. Overall score *26 pages, Layflat Premium paper, photo hardcover. US prices converted from Euros
