Kodak Gallery

When I think of Love, I think of my family and the memories we have built. I, like most people, preserve those memories in photos. When I lost some very precious photos last year, I vowed to always store my photos on a disc and to also upload my photos to Kodak Gallery. And, I have done that each and every month. Then, every few months, I make a photobook using the Kodak Gallery Canada website.

Since I have been ordering prints and making photobooks for years, I have a good idea of the features I prefer when using an online photo lab. I find Kodak’s Gallery to be fast, efficient and easy for me to separate events, dates and so on. As long as you make one purchase per year, even if it’s just one print, your photos will always be there for easy reference and printing.

I was excited to make another photobook, thanks to a gift code supplied to me by Kodak Canada. Though they have many sizes and textures to choose from, I chose the Printed Hardcover. I chose this size since most of my others are in this size and I like everything to match {yes}. Then, I chose a nice red theme, since my photobook would cover the fall and winter 2010 months. Since I had a few months to span, and wanted to choose my favorites from each month, I chose to drag and drop my photos in, one by one. Yet, if you have all your photos in one album, the auto-fill feature is fast and effective. Even so, It only took me about 20 minutes to complete my photobook!

Kodak Gallery has a US and a Canadian website, so make sure you are on the right one before you start creating. This has ‘gotten’ me more than once, and your photos and creations cannot be transferred form site to site. Since I have accidentally made photobooks on the US Kodak Gallery website, I really hope that soon the Canadian site will have all the photobook options that the the other includes. Even considering this, I really do adore the photobook I made, and it took so little time to create. It’s a beautiful way to preserve memories without having *someone* {ahem, twinlins} removing all the photos from a regular album. Oy! Yes, I much prefer photobooks!

The photobooks are a great cost, even with adding an extra 2 pages into my photobook, there was still gift credit to spare!. So, I was also able to print off photos { I still print the occasional photo, for babybooks, cards to relatives and for frames}. I got a sampling of all my favorite photos for the last 5 months.

When you order from Kodak Gallery, shipping is free if you choose to have them delivered to the nearest Future Shop or Best Buy location. I chose this option and was surprised that my prints arrived at the store only 2 days later. My photobook took about a week to arrive. Yet, for a small fee you can also have your order delivered right to your door.
