A simple and intuitive solution for producing photo albums, SmartAlbums 2 from Pixellu is an application that allows you to quickly produce well-designed, ready-to-print publications. Using a drag-and-drop interface for much of the design process, you simply add your photos directly to the project, choose which and how many photos are used in a spread, and then cycle through a choice of page layouts to best suit your work. Imagery can be cropped, scaled, and re-positioned once inserted, and borders and opacity settings can also be adjusted. Albums can be formatted according to a wide variety of specs from popular printers, or custom sizes can also be used, and saved, for other output applications. Once your design is complete, a unique Cloud Proofing feature can be utilized to gain online approval or input from your clients prior to sending your finish album to print.
SmartAlbums 2 is a standalone application that is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems. It supports working within an Adobe workflow, with the ability to preserve Lightroom and Bridge ratings as well as seamlessly transition layered documents to Photoshop or InDesign for further image editing.
