    I apoloigize now if this is in the wrong forum, but wasnt sure where else to put it. I recently took a trip abroad and saw that iPhoto has the ability to create a picture book. I think that this would be a great way to showcase all my photos. Has anyone made one of these? How was the quality if you have? Currently, I dont have a Mac yet, I hope to get a MacBook once they are updated, is there any way to make one with a PC? I am pretty sure you cant, since you need iPhoto, which isnt avail on a PC, but I thought I would ask anyway.

    Thanks for the help!

    I've made two. The quality is good, and they are literally drag and drop. You can't make iPhoto books on a Win PC, but there are other services out there than can make them. I haven't heard anything about any of them, so I can't make a recommendation.

    I've had photos printed, soft and hard cover photo books made and was very happy about the quality, so were family and friends. I'm actually going to make a photo book of my grandmother's 80th birthday / family reunion.

    As the previous poster said, there are other services that will do this. I have not tried them, but check out Kodak since iPhoto products are made by them.

    I've done two calendars and a book and I couldn't be happier with the results. Get a mac soon and don't get caught in the "wait" web.

    Thank you all for your responses, I might look into one of the alternatives you have mentioned.

    The only reason why I am waiting is I dont really "need" a new computer right now, if I needed a new one I wouldnt wait, but since this is "want" and not a need, I am waiting. Although, if they arent updated soon, I might just go buy one. I was at an Apple store over the weekend, and it was hard walking out of there w/o one.
