FAQ

What album companies can you design for?

 I can design a layout for any album company in Canada or the U.S. (Dekora Album Co, Kiss Books, Richard Photo Lab, GTA Imaging, and tons more) so just specify who your supplier is so I can customize size / export settings. 

How do I send over my files?

Send over the photos via dropbox, we transfer, google drive, an ftp server, shoot proof, or any other program. 

What is your turn around time?

The turn around time is 3-7 days. When revisions are received the album will be complete within 2 days or less. 

What do you give me when you're done?

When everything is finalized you will receive either Jpegs, Photoshop files, Indesign files, or a PDF of the layout. After downloading the files, you can send them to the album company of your choice

Can you design album covers?

I can definitely design album covers. Just let me know if that is something you need and I will have it available with the final layout. An album cover design fee of $20 will be added.

How do I prep my images?

1. Have them named chronologically and ensure that no two images have the same name
2. I recommend sending over 2 folders, "favourites" and "additional images"
3. Please have image resolution at 300 dpi and no smaller than the size of one page of your album (for example if you are getting a 10x10 album make sure the shortest edge of the photo is no smaller than 10 inches)

Can you design the album in my brand's aesthetic?

I know the importance of having a consistent brand and I want to be able to give you something that you can show of and others will recognize it as yours. I love collaborating with other photographers and creating something that is theirs, not mine. So in the contact form I ask you to tell me a little bit about your style or the way you like albums to look, that way I can give you a final product that really suits you and your brand.

Can I see a full sample of an album layout?

Of course. If you would like to see a full album layout on my online previewer I can definitely send that along to you. Just send me an email at ryanne@3bphoto.ca to inquire.
