PictureSlide.com is the newest player in the fast growing online photo book marketplace.
The photo book marketplace is still in the infancy stages, with many people not even knowing they exist. For those who do, they can be addictive to create and collect.
Photo books are the newest way to store and display images. Through the Internet, customers upload their images and layout pages using free software. The result is a professionally printed "coffee table" style book.
These photo books are often used to display pictures of family, sports events, vacations, weddings and any special events.
Although some companies have been providing photo book services for some time, the software has been difficult to use, limited in the layout options, time consuming to create, and the quality of the book color and durability varies.
PictureSlide.com solves those problems. The software they provide has been under development for the past three years. It is very intuitive, user friendly, robust and has automation that can allow a customer to create a book in less than 10 minutes.
PictureSlide.com caters to two types of customers. Those that have very limited technical or creative skill sets and those that have very technical and creative skill sets.
For those that are limited in their abilities, PictureSlide.com's patent pending software allows users to select a theme and number of pages, the software then automatically and professionally creates a book.
For those that have strong abilities, PictureSlide.com's software includes tools that allow them to manipulate images and create custom layouts with text for each page.
The software also allows users to save their work so they can work on it at their leisure.
Another major difference is PictureSlide.com's quality and variety of the final printed books.
Most of the photo book providers offer photo books in one size and style. Typically, Hard Cover, 11 x 8.5 with a picture window on the front with a very limited selection of cover materials. Most of the books are assembled by hand using a desktop gluing system and can be susceptible to pages falling out with heavy use.
PictureSlide.com is different in that it offers five different book sizes which include 6 x 4, 8 x 6, 8 x 8, 11 x 8.5 and 8.5 x 11. They also provide Hard Cover and Soft cover, in a large selection of cover materials, including a photo cover wrap. They are the only provider in the marketplace doing the photo cover wrap. PictureSlide.com also professionally creates their books using state of the art book making equipment and each book is printed with acid free, archival quality paper, and sewn to ensure durability.
PictureSlide.com's plan is to educate the marketplace and provide the easiest to use software and highest quality photo book products to the online consumer.
