Which Photo Book Size to Choose?

If you are new to photo book building with Freeze Frame Publishing, you may have questions on which photo book size to choose.

Once you have launched the photo book program from your desktop, and after you have selected the 'create new book' option, you will see a dialog box with a drop down menu. You will have five different book choices from which to choose.

Your first choice is our Classic book. It is our most popular sized photo book. It is a landscape orientation. It has a "keyhole" cover which means that one of your pictures will show through the cover. You have several binding options available with this size. Please see our Products and Pricing page for our most complete binding offerings.

Your second and third choices are for our Lay-Flat books. Both of these choices are 8.5" x 11" with one book having a landscape orientation and the other book having a portrait orientation. The pages in these books literally 'lay-flat;' they are mounted on a heavier stock paper. Black leather is the only available cover option for our lay-flat photo books. Custom hard covers are not yet available in our lay-flat books.

Your fourth and fifth choices are for our Square books. You can select a 12"x12" square book or an 8"x8" square book.

Once you have made your choice, you are ready to begin 'framing your memories.' Please refer to our blog post: Load Your Pictures and Start Framing Your Memories for more information on how to load your pictures into the photo book software. More information is also available in our HELP section.

If you find that you want to change book sizes before you send your completed project to Freeze Frame Publishing, you can! Book sizes can be changed to other sizes of the same shape. For example, an 8" x 8" can be changed to a 12" x 12". Also, if you start with a lay-flat book and change to a keyhole cover, any text on the first page will not transfer.
