A travel photo book is a beautiful keepsake that helps you remember those special trips. Create a treasure trove of travel memories with our expert photo book tips!

Travel photography is a wonderful way to capture the beauty and excitement of the places you’ve visited, but all too often those photo memories end up buried in a digital archive, all but forgotten. That's where travel photo books come in – because printing your pictures in a dedicated album will keep those special holiday moments fresh for years to come.

How to Create a Travel Photo Album

The first step to creating a travel photo book is, of course, to choose the photos. It can be tempting to include every single shot you took, but “less is more” applies here. Choose a selection of your absolute favourite images that best capture the essence of your travels. You might also want to consider grouping photos by location or theme to create a more cohesive narrative.

Once you've selected your photos, it's time to choose a format for your travel photo book. At MYPICTURE, we have a whopping 90 photo book templates. Take some time to explore different options and choose one that suits your personal style and the tone of your trip. Here are some suggestions:

For quick breaks and weekend getaways – a small, softcover photo book that’s easy to design and perfect for high-impact candid shots.

For grand family holidays – a large, hardcover photo book with lay-flat pages that can feature a double-page photo spread without interruption.

For romantic trips – a large or medium-sized photo book with a peek-a-boo photo cover featuring a photo of you and your partner together.

For active trips with friends – a spiral-bound photo book that can lay flat and withstand frequent handling and flipping through pages.

For a journey of a lifetime – a premium coffee-table book with a hardback cover and thick, glossy pages to do justice to those precious images.

Note: Once you’ve chosen your template, it can be customised even further – because you get to choose the size, binding format, and even paper type.

It's All About the Details

A great photo book is much more than just a collection of pictures – it tells a story and expresses the emotions and experiences behind the photos. So how can you achieve this? The secret is to create a coherent narrative by paying attention to the small details.

This is where you can let your creativity shine and make your photo book truly unique. Experiment with different layouts and combinations of photos, add captions or notes to give context to your images, and include other mementoes from your trip such as ticket stubs or postcards (you’ll just need to turn those items into digital files by scanning or photographing them).

Things to Keep in Mind

When it comes to designing your travel photo book, there are a few key principles to keep in mind. First, strive for balance and consistency in your layouts – avoid cluttering pages with too many images or text, and try to create a cohesive visual style throughout the book. You might also want to experiment with different page formats, such as full-bleed images or collages, to keep things visually interesting.

When you design a photo book, don’t forget about the finishing touches! Adding a title page, dedicating the book to someone special, or including a map of your travels can all add extra meaning and context to your travel photo book.

And once your book is complete, choose a prominent place to display it on your bookshelf or coffee table – after all, the whole point of a travel photo book is to have a tangible reminder of your adventures that you can return to again and again.
