What is a photobook?
Photobooks are the future of photo finishing. Much better than a stack of prints, a photobook is the best way for you to share your memories and photos with your family and friends.

Nope. We use common web technologies available to most home computers that let you do everything a regular installed application will let you do, but with the added benefit of having your work available on most any computer that is attached to the internet. However, if you do not have up-to-date versions of Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight, you will need to update to the current version in order to use our tools.
What kind of computer can I use to design my products?
You can use any machine that can run Microsoft Silverlight 4.0 or higher. This includes any Windows PC, or any Apple Computer manufactured after 2006.
What kind of browser can I use?
We support all current versions of Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari.
What is Silverlight?
Silverlight is the technology that we have used to create our product designer application, so you will need to have it installed to create your project. Silverlight is a Microsoft browser plug-in similar to Adobe Flash. It lets you do amazing things in your browser, like build great design applications without having to download bulky software.

I am having a problem uploading photos.
Our primary photo uploader relies on Adobe Flash 9.0.26 or higher to allow you to select and upload several photos at once.
