How to create even better photo books?
If you like to be more creative, I do suggest you to install Picasa on your computer, a free photo editing software! You can then use the brilliant Photo Collage Maker to create photo collages! Note that you can choose any number of images for your collage, rotate the images to any angle or specify any background! I do suggest to not have more than two images per collage!
After creating a collage, open the collage in Picasa image editor and edit it to enter caption or any other memorable text. Picasa has a lot of cool photo editing tools to make perfect collages and posters! It can also be used to upload photos to Picnik for applying further cool photo effects and picture editing tools!

That is it folks! Do you get the idea? It is now for you to act by choosing the appropriate photo editor and unleashing your creativity! Enjoy creating you own digital photo books!
