The Ten Minute Portrait Album

Have you ever wanted to enhance your portrait session revenues, but the album design process seems overwhelming? Are you looking for an easy way to enhance your portrait package?

Creating an album doesn’t need to be a huge undertaking. Of course we love making big, tricked out, all the bells and whistles metal-cover books with a photographers heart poured into every page, but sometimes a nice, simple, inexpensive professional quality book that shows off your photos can help differentiate your portrait packages and increase your profits.

We’ve created a quick video tutorial with how Eric (our customer advocate) likes to create portrait books in less than 10 minutes using Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.

In this video you will learn how to design and order a portrait album in less than 10 minutes!
