How would you use the product?

I am able to design a photo album with Fundy Album Builder in about 15 minutes! There are so many lab choices already built in to the Album Designer software. I can quickly put together an album preview to show clients.

Is the product accessible to your clients? In other words, is this something you can see your clients wanting and is it something you are comfortable offering?

A photography client may not need this software, but I can put together a sample album for a client very quickly by using Fundy.

How would/does Album Builder fit in with your work flow / studio business?

Album Builder is extremely easy to learn and easy to use! Fundy album designer would increase my options of sales without spending hours designing an album layout. I design them in less than 15 minutes now! And when I’m ready to export, I get the choices of saving for print, proof or web.

What feature/tool in the program do you find particularly useful?

I love that once I import and drag the photos onto the pages, if I want to change a particular layout, Fundy pops up 12 other layout choices for the page I want to change. This gives me ideas for layouts that I would not have thought of!
