so how does photojunction work exactly? you create the album yourself then order the album through them then shipped to your door?

I think its just a program to create a layout for the album.

what do you do after you create the whole album? save it to a cd then have the album made at a shop?

PJ is a design program. It can integrate with an album manufacturer so you can specify album type and size, cover, text, etc, then upload to the provider, but very few album makers use this whole service. Queensberry make PhotoJunction, it does pretty much everything their customers need from design to upload.

Alternate you can design your layouts and output them as psd or jpeg files. What you do with them from there is up to you. You can have prints made then send them to an album company to bind, or email/ftp/cd the images to a place to print and bind.

Thanks for the explanation tim. I had the same question about PJ as asianstutter. I'm still having a few problems with the software and starting a photo album. I get a screen that asks for the Album Supplier and Album Details. It looks like the software requires me to set this up before I even start an album.

Of course you have to know what you're designing before you design it. Either download the resources for your album manufacturer, or set up custom resources. Custom resources basically just specify image size, resolution, trim lines, etc. Pretty simple stuff.

I know blurb.com may not be seen as a fully professional service (after all you dont need to be a professional photographer to use their services) but I have been trying a range of companies recently and I am in general very impressed with the quality and value for money for their products. Blurb albums can be designed with PS, Indesign or with their own software.

Has anyone else tried there new proline services?
They now offer linen backed hardcover books with new heavy weight/gsm papers.. would certainly recommend having a look:-

Makes little difference really. Any album design program will give you an image file you can print any way you like. PJ works well and the price is good (free).

Of course you have to know what you're designing before you design it. Either download the resources for your album manufacturer, or set up custom resources. Custom resources basically just specify image size, resolution, trim lines, etc. Pretty simple stuff.

I use and LOVE Photojunction. We had a love-hate relationship for a while until I finally learned how to use it. I also use templates for my design, cuts my time in half. I prefer Melissa Jill's templates: http://photojunctionte​mplates.com/ (external link) and I've also changed a lot of those and saved them as templates as well.

I like to purchase my albums through Finao, so I export all of my templates as PSD's, save them as JPEG's and then upload them with my order on Finao's website.

It's a really resourceful tool so long as you take the time to learn it, as others have said.
