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.

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.

I have used Mimeo to create calendars every year since it is no longer possible within Apple/Photos. It is quite easy to use and the quality of the calendars are good. I would recommend it and it is superior to other, similar, products. I do have a few frustrations. First you cannot delete the unused photos from the collection you establish to choose from when creating your project. This was a great feature of the Apple product. Second, if you want to mail multiple (different) calendars to the same address you cannot do it. You have to order each separately which means you pay shipping for each calendar. The prices of the calendar are reasonable but the shipping is high and so this really increases the cost. Also, once you order, you cannot see what you have sent. It would be great if they would at least include the name of the project in the order history. Also I do not want the mimeo logo on the cover. I give it a three star rating because of these issues not because of the quality of the product which is high. Customer service is terrific and very timely.
