Albums And Frames / December 23, 2018 / Stephanie Eaton
Some albums close with a snap or buckle; others have a leather strap that is tied shut. They usually come in either a 12-inch square or an 8½-inch by 11-inch format. The larger format allows more diversity when laying out the photos. A nicer album with the pages stitched in place cannot have pages added to it. Some albums have ring binders so you can add new pages later. A one-inch ring can hold about 100 photos. A two-inch ring can hold up to 400. The non-expandable types require careful planning to make sure you don't run out of pages or have empties at the end.
With all the different types of photo albums and the variety of themes and patterns, choosing a photo album can be more difficult than expected. The best way to select an album is to look for a design that matches the mood of the pictures. A wedding album will probably not look the same as a vacation album or a baby scrapbook, or even an album from a night of event photography. The cost of albums and materials can also affect this choice. Most of all, a photography album should invoke positive emotions about the experiences inside. If it does this, the album is a wonderful success.
