    I know this has been posted before, but I can't search, so i'm starting a new thread...

    I just finished a class and officially made the switch to indesign for my wedding album layouts, and was interested to see what you guys had, or what you've found along the way...

    Bonus points for layouts for the Kiss 10x10 books, since I think they're going to be my preferred vendor of 2010... Especially since they make coffee table books and flush mount albums now...

    $30 bucks gets you 60 masked layouts in PS from Laurence Chan. Just a thought. I have em and I like em.

    That video was made for morons by a gay fool.

    it still amazes me how completely computer illiterate some/most "photographers" are, yet they're making some stupid amounts of $$ from otherwise clueless people.

    i need to start charging money for my shit. :o

    One of the more successful photogs here in houston doesn't even like Photoshop. She pays someone to edit all her pictures... I think she said a certain amount per picture. Some people like it, some people don't. This guy is good enough to take advantage of the ones that are willing to give him a small 'donation' for his work.

    Go read his bio, he's making tons of money off people that are starting out. Gotta give it to him, he's smart and making money at it. :dunno:

    and here you sit, bitching, and offering no solution. :o

    from a simplistic approach, I happen to like the PS setup considering KISS Albums has a JPEG format layout you can drag and drop these templates in. I can design, upload, and order a 40 page album in less than 3 hours, then turn around and sell it for $1000. Sounds pretty fucking genius to me. :o

    oh, i completely agree. there's plenty of $$ to be made from teaching (?) people that think they don't have any clue what they're doing (yet, they probably do) ... just look at 1/2 of the 'popular' CA photogs. i don't think half of them even do any paid shooting gigs anymore.

    maybe i should write a 'how to shoot wedding pictures' book, and just tell everyone i've been crazy successful. oddly enough, i'm sure there's $$ to be made off of that. :o

    Why use photoshop or pay for any album layouts?? Black River Imaging gives you 20-30 layouts for free with their Tuscany albums. Drag and drop and BOOM!! Instant albums!
