We would like to remind you of the compelling case for presenting your pictures in printed albums.

· The results look so much more pleasing than 6x4 prints · albums make great gifts – thank-you for a party, etc.

· The record is permanent (will Windows 2020 read your current .jpg and .tif files? – let alone your CD/DVD and memory card)

· In a couple of years your photo viewer will be replaced.

· Albums are compact

· With the right software (we recommend Fotoslate 4) they are so quick and easy to produce

· You can add a story – or make a scrapbook – variations of the same thing – but according to your desire. The ladies especially like this!

· Doing them yourself, you can modify/update them – add pages and have the results immediately

· What is more they are not at all expensive (Under £6 including VAT and Photo Club* discount) – for typically 90 pictures on the more economic Print & Bind – obviously more with the archival quality Photo Art – but still very good value for money. · What is the value of your memories? With current digital photography they are in danger of being lost. * if your Photo Club is registered with us.
