Montage – Professional-Quality Photo Books

Digital cameras have made it incredibly easy to capture life’s most important moments, but it’s become a rarity for people to actually print the images they capture. Montage offers a way for people to quickly get their favorite images off of their computers and into professional-quality photo books.

Montage differentiates itself from competing photo solutions with speed and simplicity. The web-based application turns what would typically be an hours-long process into something that can be done in just a few minutes. On average, it takes between 10 and 15 minutes to create a photo book with Montage. To begin the process, choose the images you’d like to include in your photo book. Montage will “auto-magically” place them into the best layout using “computer vision technologies” to group photos together based on date, time, location, and subjects.

Montage’s photo books can be made in three different sizes, and they cost the same price no matter how many pages or photos you choose to include. The wait time to receive a Montage photo book is only four to five days, compared to the weeks (or longer) it can take to receive a photo book through other online companies.

Practical Uses:

  • Make custom photo books for all the most important events in your life
  • Let Montage automatically select the best photos to include in your photo albums
  • Create a baby book for your son or daughter

Insider Tips:

  • Users can choose from multiple layout options
  • Montage photo books come in three different sizes
