Picaboo is certainly a contender among the many services that let you create and order a custom photo book online. The company is mostly focused on photo books, but also offers journals, notebooks, calendars, and even mouse pad printing services.We found its web editor better than Shutterfly’s thanks to a variety of charming options and features. That said, because of occasional crashing and general sluggishness, the Picaboo editor wasn’t as smooth as Mixbook’s. What’s more, the Picaboo book itself suffered some photo consistency issues, and the final printed product wasn’t as striking as we hoped for.Picaboo has an array of…

PrestoPhoto isn’t just a photo book service. It’s also an online marketplace for selling your creations—though there’s no obligation to put your work up for sale. It’s a great idea, but sadly PrestoPhoto just doesn’t deliver. The book creation editor is slow, dated-looking and lacks essential features, and the final book it produces doesn’t match the quality of competitors, despite relatively decent (if a bit dark) image reproduction.On the positive side, PrestoPhoto has the widest selection of photo book types and sizes among the services PCWorld reviewed. There are six different styles, ranging from “landscape” to “tall portrait,” and a…

In the wide world of online photo book services, Mixbook handily distinguishes itself as one of the best. One main reason is Mixbook’s smooth, easy-to-use web editor which makes it a pleasure to assemble your creation. The resulting photo book was also quite good. Colors popped, quality was consistent throughout, and the book looked and felt like a coffee table book you could buy in a museum gift shop.Mixbook offers three basic photo book types: landscape (starting at $15.99), square (starting at $19.99), and portrait (starting at $24.99). There are seven sizes to choose from, which go from as small…

Founded in 1999, Shutterfly has been in the online photo printing business the longest among all its DIY photo book competitors. It’s very popular, with millions of customers ordering photo books, prints, cards, and other photo products every year.When it comes to photo books, Shutterfly offers a sometimes frustrating web editor for creating the book, but somewhat makes up for this with a nice selection of creative features. The photos came out looking good, but we received a book with some trim issues that sliced into text placed near the edge of a page.Shutterfly has three options for creating your…
