Create the Perfect Gift in Just 30 Minutes

With so much to do during the festive season and so many things to organise, it can be difficult to find time to make a thoughtful gift for someone special.

If you want to give the perfect gift but are short on time, CEWE Photoworld can help. Their award winning Creator Software makes it simple and straightforward to turn a selection of photographs into a beautiful CEWE PHOTOBOOK. In fact, you could create a photo book in just 30 minutes; giving you the perfect gift in no time at all.

Here are a few tips to help you create your photo book in half an hour or less.


Organise your photographs before you begin

Sorting through your pictures before you start designing your photo book will make it much easier. Select the photographs you’d like to include in your book, and save them in one folder on your computer so they’re easy to find.

Use the Assistant

Once you’ve opened the Creator Software, selected a book size and chosen a paper type, click to design your book with the help of the Assistant. This lets you automatically fill the pages with your images, instead of dragging and dropping each picture individually.

Choose from a wide range of layouts to find a design you like, then choose a cover type and give your book a title. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be taken through to the main book editor where you’ll be able to review your photo book and make any amendments to the design.


Check the layout carefully

Because the Assistant automatically fills your book with photos, it’s important to check through each page and ensure your images haven’t been cut off anywhere. If you want to move an image, simply click on the picture and drag it to move it.

Customise with backgrounds and clip art

You can change the background of each page within your photo book, and you can also add a range of embellishments and clip art to customise the pages. The Creator Software comes with lots of backgrounds and clip art ready to use, all organised by theme and occasion to make it easy to find the right embellishment to add to each page.

And with that, your CEWE PHOTOBOOK is complete. Simply check through your book once more to make sure you’re happy, then place your order. The perfect Christmas present, in just 30 minutes.
