Make Halloween a treat with a photo book

Posted By Tiffany M On October 31, 2009 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 3 Comments

I recently got this crazy idea to scan old Halloween pictures…of me! We are talking circa 1978.

To research my idea, I poked around the Shutterfly Gallery [1] and found inspiration in this awesome Halloween Past [2] book by DAWNS1133. I would love to do a project like hers with my husband and I as children through the years! That will be my treat for Halloween 2010.

In the meantime with Halloween right around the corner (like TODAY!), I wanted to make something quickly. It was time for me to try out the new Simple Path [3] feature. I’m a Custom Path [4] girl myself (Custom Path allows you to fully customize your photo book), so was a little hesitant to give up control, but Simple Path won me over. It did all the work for me instantly, and even though I didn’t get to make ALL of my own choices, I didn’t mind because the book looked beautiful. Better yet, I created it in under fifteen minutes.

Here’s how I did it:

I uploaded my Halloween images, dragged and dropped a couple of images that I wanted repositioned…

…added simple captions, changed the background style to black, and I was done. Not bad for under 15 minutes!

Here’s a Simple Path trick for you. If you decide you want to add more photos to your Simple Path creation after you’ve worked on it awhile, click the “Arrange Pictures” button in the upper-left-hand corner of your screen, then the “Add Pictures” button in the upper-right-hand corner of your screen.

Happy Halloween photo-booking!
