Great replacement for iPhoto Photo Book
I'll admit I've only made a handful of these but always thought the built-in photobook utility included with iPhoto yielded some of the best, highest-quality books for the price and ease of use. I was sad to find out that Apple removed it in subsequent versions of Photos and dreaded having to find the perfect replacement.
I did a bit of research in the add-ins presented by Apple and Mimeo won out. It was easy to install / add to Photos and works just as easy as the old functionality in iPhoto. The book layout tool is relatively easy to use however there are a few limitations and UI choices that keep it from being a 5 for me. I had some problems with some auto-snapping / aligning when I was trying to change up the page layouts a bit. The options for text, formatting and text boxes are a bit limited and can be tricky to use because they won't expand to show ALL the text you're trying to put in the box. I also ran into some weird issues where a panorama photo with the same pixel dimensions and file size as one I'd already inserted as a two-page spread elsewhere wasn't going to be high enough quality to use on another pair of pages.
The books I ordered were gifts for some friends that went with me on an epic trip and I can tell you they *feel* special. The papers are high-quality, the printing is beautiful, the binding seems to be good and strong and I'm so excited to give these to the guys. I'll be ordering more of these soon.

Mimeo Photo Books
At first I was very upset that Apple iPhoto/photo stopped supporting books. I chose Mimeo as it seemed to have the best reviews for a replacement. The learning curve for me was a bit tough, but the support from Mimeo was amazing. They always found answers to my questions and issues. It still takes me longer to create my books in Mimeo, but I like the extra flexibility Mimeo provides vs. the Apple iphoto books. I still have some learning to do, but my recent books have come out great.
My biggest wish is that they would remove the very large Mimeo logo on the covers. My customers do not need to see that on their gifts.
What about it Mimeo…can you remove those? Apple gave us the option to have them removed and it would give me a reason to give you 5 stars.
My second biggest wish would be to be able to delete the unused or replaced photos in each book project. Apple allowed that also.
Developer Response ,
We sincerely appreciate you giving us a chance and connecting with us so that we can help you! We are absolutely here for you to help you grow and learn as you adapt to a new program.
I'm happy to let you know that removing the logo is also our priority! We are currently working through planning multiple business-driven features such as branding (future), removal of logo and PDF templates to work from other programs.

Calendars Doesn't Support Calendars
I make a custom calendar for each of our six grandchildren with dates for birthdays, anniversaries and special family events. However, each year I must manually enter these dates for each family ... for example "Uncle Nate's Birthday" is "Dad's Birthday"… very frustrating and lots of room for mistakes. Why can't I just click on the Apple Calendars I want to include in each calendar Project. At the very least I should be able to use the previous year’s calendar as a model for the upcoming year, i.e. roll over the dates to the new year and remove last year’s photos.
Also, navigating the calendar app is clumsy. Every time I edit a photo the app takes me back to the cover page. There should be clickable thumbnails for each month to go to that page. Also, I would like to see both the photos and calendar on one screen so that a) I can verify the month I am working on, and b) check the calendar for cues regarding what photos I should include, i.e. that kid’s birthday, etc.
Like Trisea60, I believe there should be a way to delete photos from the photo gallery. I often work on photos in PhotoShop to do special things like turn the kid into a ninja warrior or something. I then want to delete the original so it doesn’t clutter up the workspace. This feature is also needed to reuse a calendar as a template for another grandchild.
