How to Revise Your Coffee Table Album Proof
Directions for reviewing and revising your custom album.
As your Portland portrait and wedding photographer, I am so excited to create this amazing custom coffee table album with you! Follow the steps below to easily walk you through the process of revising your album proof. Please, don't hesitate to email me with any questions you might have along the way.
Step 1 - Choose Your Cover
A) You may have already done this during your image review. If you haven't, start by selecting your cover type. Options are pictured below and include, cover material only, cover material with imprinting or wrap around photo.
B) For wrap around photo, choose your favorite photo for the cover. When selecting your image, keep in mind the square shape of the album.
C) For either material cover, choose your favorite of our many cover material options from the PDF below. If you want imprinting, make sure the material type you selected can be imprinted on by checking the end of it's page.
A CAUTION: When viewing materials online colors vary depending on device or screen calibration.
D) Select for imprinting, your front, color and text. Included text may be up to three lines. Some examples would be your first names, last name, wedding date and so on.
Step 2 - Pick Your Favorite Images
Open your online wedding gallery, and take a few moments to look through all of your images. Any photo you really like, click the "star" at the bottom and add it to your favorites list, you might already have some there from our meeting. Doing this step will make looking for images to add to your album easier.
Step 3 - Review Your Album Proof and Leave Notes
Start by opening your album proof using your personal link, that was emailed to you. Next, approve the album as is, or you may request changes.
If requesting changes, you can leave notes on each spread to approve it, remove it, or make images changes. Don't worry about the orientation of the image, I will adjust the layout if needed based on your overall changes. Once you are done with all of your comments, click the "finished" button in the upper right hand corner.
For more detailed instructions and tips, please watch the video below.
Step 4 - Final Review
Once I have received your comments I will update your album and send it back for your final review. This review should be a quick look through to make sure everything is good and I correctly applied all of your notes before we go to print. After reviewing, leave any final notes if needed, and click the "finished" button one last time.
Step 5 - Go to Print
Once I have your final approval the album will go to print! Coffee table books are generally produced in 1 week then are ready for shipping.
I can't wait for you to have this coffee table book in hand! The experience of holding it and flipping through the pages is so much better then seeing it on the screen!
