Picaboo (http://www.picaboo.com), creator of the premier application for making, sharing and buying premium-quality photo books, today announced the launch of Picaboo X, an enhanced PC- and Mac-compatible bookmaking software that delivers unprecedented ease-of-use and creative control to the customer through a host of new features.

There’s nothing like it in the photo book industry.”
Picaboo X Highlights Include:
- Fully customizable layouts that let you add, resize, rotate or move photos and captions anywhere on the page;
- More than 240 pre-designed page layouts;
