  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.

    Not from TESCO, but I ordered a photobook from BONUSPRINT last year and was very happy with the result, as was my partner who hadn't expected anything like it. Quality of printing very good on good paper.
    I had to upload the photos and download some software, edit the photos (arranging, adding different frames, resizing etc) add text if wanted. Easy to do and quite some fun(!) and satification for a personal touch present.

    I have used tesco photobooks I wasnt massively impressed as some of the layouts suffer from alignment issues which I didnt pick up on until it was too late.

    Print quality was ok, but rounded corners wasnt great. Overall cheap and cheerful you get what you pay for.

    I agree, although I've not used their photo books, I have used them to print a few photo's in the past. Just your general "Another one for gran" type photo's and the quality and colours are OK, but I wouldn't use them for anything I wanted to keep on show. If i need a photo quick I have the option of Boots or Tesco. Tesco are about half the price but the quality difference is noticable, I tend to opt for boots if I'm in a hurry.

    Another vote for PhotoBox here. I've used them and their prints were great! (y)

    I have prepared three photo books and coffee table books through Albelli. They provide lot of options for canvas printing, photo album and photo gifts with great quality.

    haven't tried the photo books but i got a 12x18 poster print done and was amazed at the quality, wasn't expecting it to be honest and they print it in an hour

    I have had three Tesco photo books, two given and one sent and for the cost the quality is most satisfactory, that is not to say that there is not someone better out there, my daughter-in-law,s parents spent five hours in Tesco completing their,s, but it was very good indeed.

    I have used them a couple of times making use of the program you download so that you can prepare everything in advance rather than the online web creator. Spent a good few hours each time getting layout etc right and very pleased with the results.

    I like Smiley Hippo. Great quality books and quite reasonable. Plus, if you register with Groupon you get great deals with them for Smiley Hippo. My last deal was a book worth £27 for £3.50 plus P&P

    I can thoroughly recommend Aldi's photo books, excellent quality, they were recommended to me by fellow members of my photo club, IMHO a good recommendation in itself.

    Tesco books are ok for what you pay for them. But you can get much better quality at a much biugger price.

    I have used Blurb and just put an order through sim2000 (need to be a registered tog with them)
    Really like the blurb ones but tryin out their pro line range this time round, only a little extra than normal. Both have software to download and found them quite easy to use.

    We actually did our wedding album online at Tesco and it turned out really great. Did one for the honeymoon instore and it was poor quality. Not a patch on the online one. Very disappointing.
