PJ is a bit quirky, but once you learn it it's very easy. FotoFusion's definitely easier to use to start with.


Agreed about PJ.. You can not argue about the price on Photojunction. Free is GREAT !!! So if you have the time and patience PJ is a way to go.

The ability to Email low rez albums designs to clients is a very nice feature of fotofusion.

What works for one person does not work for the next. I think the worst solution is Photoshop but thats just my opinion.

That would be a nice feature. In PJ I export proof layouts then email those. They provide a slide show export in quicktime format, but I really don't like that, it's very heavy and large.

Everyone i have spoken to at vegas wppi raved about this product. Most of the album companies that let me talk to thier designers raved about it. So we got it and gave it a go........awesome product. Problem solved with album design for me. Its a great product.

I read your "Tims Wedding Album Design Tutorial" Great info. I also like the Queensbury facebook page.

Thanks Tim!!!

It is, but that's not what I do. I upload a low resolution version in a separate password-protected folder in the couple's on-line gallery (Zenfolio in my case). No big e-mail to pass and it's just always there for both of us to reference. As changes are made, I upload a new set of proofs for them to review.

If anyone is using KISS they recently released their SWAT designer...its a really nice tool... it is missing a few features that PJ has...but otherwise it is a pretty well thought out tool.

It's a web based interface so I can work on spreads from anywhere which is really nice and I can send a link to clients that takes them to a password protected online slideshow of the spreads.

Because it is made by KISS all I have to do is hit Print and it sends the album directly to them for printing...no more exporting and uploading etc. I'm really enjoying it so far.

I'd like that! I'm with Zookbinders and I love their albums, but it's the whole separate ROES upload process which is kind of obnoxious.

I've got zero experience with album creation software. I would like to start using Photojunction because of the great price (FREE). I'll probably play around with it this weekend to create some personal family albums. My question is how/where do you get the albums printed after completing them in the software?

PhotoJunction does that, so long as the album manufacturer has set up systems to enable it. Queensberry has, obviously, since they make PhotoJunction.

I prefer to export to psd then tweak/sharpen/check the images. Once i've done that PJ bundles things up and sends them to QB for printing.

I use Miller's Remote Suite Plus Albums & Books (For Miller's Lab customers). It works, but I feel like I'm testing it for them, as I've worked through a lot of bugs so far.

It has the features and the price (free) have me happy otherwise.
