Online Wedding Photo Album

Looking for a way to share photos of you and your fiance growing up? How about a way to share your engagement pictures quickly and easily with your friends and family? Or, after the wedding a way to share all the joy of the day with your guests and those who could not be there on your special day?

If you are searching for a way to do any of these things or just to share other wedding-related photos, then I think you should check out the photo album. This being the Cost-Effective Bride Newsletter I would not want to recommend anything to you that you put you over your budget or not be worth the cost of the product. So, I will tell you the price right off the bat and then explain to you why I think it is a great addition to your wedding, especially for the price. And, I will give you some tips for scanning and saving your photos when you are going to upload them to the internet.

So, the price for the wedding photo album is $13.49 - this gives you an entire year of using your photo album and allows you to create an unlimited amount of albums, each with an unlimited amount of photos in them. Now, I have to tell you, there are places on the internet to get a free wedding website, but none of these places allow you to share as many photos as you would like.

Each photo album also allows your guests to see the pictures within the album in a slide show format. And, the photo managing tool allows you to:

  1. Change the order of the photos within each album
  2. Add a caption to each photo
  3. Resize the width or height of your photos
  4. Delete photos from your album

The photo album manager allows you to:

  1. Title each of your photo albums whatever you would like to name them
  2. Create new photo albums
  3. Edit the title of your existing photo albums
  4. Delete photo albums

So, why is this such a great addition to your wedding? Well, when your guests see these photos and learn more about you as a couple, they will feel much more involved in your wedding, and they will truly be excited to share in your day! So often we don't look forward to going to weddings because we only know either the bride or the groom and we don't know a lot about them as a couple. We just happen to know their parents or are a relative of one of the couple. Wouldn't it be nice for your guests to feel like they know both of you before possibly ever meeting you?

Tips for great online photos:

  1. If you don't have a scanner or digital camera, be sure to get your photos developed to a disk. These files can then be uploaded from your computer.
  2. When scanning photos, set the dpi (dots per inch) to 150 - this is a compromise between 72dpi which takes less long to upload, but is not as good of quality and 300 dpi, which is very good quality, but could take very long to upload - especially if you have a slow connection.
  3. Use a photo editor to crop your photos and possibly even color correct them before uploading them. Having lots of blank space around the main focus of a picture will take up memory and be harder for people to see the focal point of the photo. (By the way, most newer computers come with some sort of photo editor or paint program, so do some digging in your programs file if you are not sure.)
  4. When uploading more than one photo at a time, be prepared to wait, especially with slower connections. Don't worry though, it is worth the wait!

If you have any questions about the photo album or need advice for uploading photos, scanning photos, etc. please e-mail me at and I would be happy to help you out in any way that I can!
