Kodak Quickstart Photo Book


Imagine my surprise when I opened up an email to find that I had a congratulatory message that I had been selected as a member of Foodbuzz's Tastemaker Program. I was beyond giddy! I have been selected as one of the few who to create a Quickstart Photo Book. Complete creativity has been placed in my hands as well as the ability to resize, move, rotate, and even overlay my photo images and text. Exciting! However, for me, this is very intimidating.


I am not tech savvy by any means. Why couldn't I have been selected to participate in a Foodbuzz 24x24? I can handle cooking. Anything on the laptop is about foreign to me.


Kodak's Quickstart Photo Book takes the guesswork out of the whole process. I followed the prompts on the screen and began uploading my images straight from Facebook. I began cropping and editing the images along with adding text.


So many ideas for Photo Books came to mind. Since my little man is learning to read at age 3 and he has a love for the alphabet I thought it would be nice to create an A-Z book. Since I am crunched for time at this moment I decided to create a "Through the First Years" theme. My favorite photos of my son from birth to 3 years old were chosen and quotes were added.


How cool is this? Kodak Gallery is offering my FOLLOWERS an exclusive offer to receive 40% off  a medium hardcover or a large Photo Book. This offer is only valid by clicking HERE through the dates of August 8, 2011 - August 31, 2011.

That is so sweet. Even being computer savy, I shy away from photobooks. I think because it is permanent. Your is precious.

Oh I got a chance to do this too! Actually, putting up my post as we speak! Yours turned out so good =)

The Slow Roasted Italian - I had seen a couple of the other photo books that other food publishers got a chance to make and theirs were amazing. I didn't have a lot of time to put it together since my dad was visiting but I can't wait to do this again. The process was really simple and the price is nice.

Peggy - Can't wait to see yours.

Congratulations! Sounds like a fun project to be selected to work on, and a wonderful way to save precious memories with your son.

Pretend Chef said...

Jeanette - Thank you. He really loves flipping through the book as well. It's fun to sit down together and share these memories.
