Users Review on iPhoto Photo Book

1."I've to say that I'm impressed with the quality. Sure, it's nothing cheap, but bundling your most valuable vacation or celebration pictures like this only does them justice, in my opinion. When showing this book to friends everybody was very excited. Many people wanted to know how they could create similar books with their pictures…" from StyleMac.com

2." iLife (iPhoto) will create a high-quality photo book and support it well, but it's very difficult to use." From TopTenReview.com
