How to turn your travel snaps into a photo book
Keep your holiday adventures alive by turning your travel snaps into a photo book.
Kim Neuhold has been keeping her travel memories alive during lockdown, putting together a photo book of her trip to Japan with her husband last year. Once completed, it will join their library of more than a dozen beautifully bound books that showcase their annual trips abroad.
“You take so many photos these days with digital cameras, you can end up with more than 2000 photos,” Kim says. She uses Microsoft Photos to adjust and organise her images, and software available through an on-demand photo-book company, to design and print the book.
“We always do a diary for our trips and I include that text in the books,” Kim says. “You end up with an album that tells you everything about the trip.”
When travelling, Kim and her husband take a variety of shots, including landscapes, people, food and landmarks, and they collect mementos such as tickets and menus to later scan and include in the layout. “My husband often uses Google Maps to plot our route and we include that as well.”
Their books are usually 100 to 150 pages, depending on the length of their travels, and take about a month to create. “It doesn’t have to be time consuming. If you want to put all your photos in without any text, you can do it quite easily,” Kim says.
