Create a stunning double-page spread.

Add that “wow” factor to your photo book by showcasing your favorite picture in a two-page spread. Choose a photo that is at least 2500 pixels wide and doesn’t have important details like text or faces in the middle. Decide which book style and size you'd like to create, then follow our step-by-step instructions to edit your image and place it in your book. Your family and friends are going to be impressed by your photo book talents when they see the beautiful two-page spread you designed with Picaboo.


Frame your pictures with fun corners.


Add the perfect finishing touch to your pictures with Picaboo's corners. After you have created a page, select "Corners" from your Book Tools menu.

For your Mother's Day book, try the flower and pebble corners.


Add personalized backgrounds.


Take pictures of interesting textures, patterns, or landscapes that would work well as backgrounds for the pages of your Mother's Day book.

Later, in Picaboo's Edit mode, simply drag and drop these photos onto the background of the page.


Create a 3-D effect.


To easily add depth to a full page image, first select a page layout with one photo well. Next, drag and drop the image you have selected onto both the background of the page as well as the photo well.

To finish the effect, use the Picture Tools to zoom into the picture and center it however you'd like.


Scan artwork, tickets, or special keepsakes.


To add artwork, tickets, or other keepsakes to your book, scan special items to create a high quality digital image.

Arrange one item or many on your scanner. Scan them, and save them as a high resolution (300 DPI) .jpg files. These images can then be added to a single photo well in Picaboo or used as a background or a full page image.


Create a personalized frame.


Select the Picaboo Collage frame layout. Drag your center image into the photo well at the middle of the page (landscape photos work best). Next, add other photos to the image wells around the outside of the page.


End your book with a collage.


The perfect way to include all the extra photos that you couldn't fit into the rest of your Mother's Day book is to add a collage page at the end.

Choose to fill all the photo wells or just a few and be sure to select the perfect background for the finishing touch.
