Hi there, welcome to Photobox. If you’re new here, just passing by or even a gifting expert, here’s a handy guide on how to get started on your photo creations.

How to get started with photo books

One of our best-selling products, and for good reason. Photo books are the *best* way to capture all your moments in one place that can be gifted to loved ones or kept for your personal collection.

We suggest using the downloadable desktop editor for your photo books to get the best creation experience.

Why should I use this editor?

  • It’s free to download the editor, for both Windows and Mac OS users
  • The downloadable desktop editor is best for the full creation experience, giving you the control to make the perfect photo gifts (and you can use it offline too for when you have zero connection).
  • It’s great for larger projects. Got a camera roll full of snaps from the wedding of the year? Time to get creating.
