Top Tips for Your Best Photo Yearbook Yet

23rd December 2020

A lot can happen in a year and 2020 is certainly no exception. Wrap up this year with a positive spin by creating a personalised year-in-review book, filled with your favourite photos of the memories you’ve made over the past 12 months. From small social gatherings with family to outdoor adventures with friends, record those special moments from your year in a CEWE PHOTOBOOK. It’s a great way to look back at all you’ve done in a year that felt hard to achieve anything. We’ve put together our top tips to showcasing your highlights of 2020 in a personalised photo book.

Collect Your Favourite Moments In One Place

With the many restrictions we’ve had throughout this year, you may feel that this year has passed you by. That’s why we’re here to remind you to look back on all that have achieved in spite of it all! Life has continued on (admittedly, not as expected) and there are many happy memories that have still been made. From the small, day-to-day moments to big occasions – such as a wedding or welcoming a new addition to the family – collate those treasured memories of 2020 together into a stunning photo book that you can look back on in years to come.

Upload your favourite photos from the past 12 months to CEWE myPhotos – our handy online photo storage platform. You’ll enjoy up to 10GB of storage space for free and can create albums to organise your photos in a quick and effective way. Plus, you can invite family and friends to add their photos to your password-protected, shared albums too. Access your photos easily from within our free downloadable Creator Software and simply drag and drop into your photo year book. Alternatively, you can upload your photos straight from your device. When sorting through a year’s worth of photos, you’ll soon realise just how much you’ve done this year!

Top tip: Write a list of the key events that have happened this year, from birthdays to UK getaways. Don’t forget to include the many little, every day moments, like catching up with friends and going on dog walks with the family. It’s a great way to reflect and truly appreciate the many small, unique moments you’ve experienced this year and will help you organise your photos too.

Document Your Year in Just A Few Steps

When creating your year-in-review book, you can customise it to exactly how you want it. You’ll have ultimate creative freedom to create a truly unique photo book, just as unique as the year itself! If you don’t feel as confident in your creative abilities to design your own or are struggling to find the time, there are plenty of stylish, ready-made templates to use, which will help you create the best photo books!

We’ve got a selection of modern designs in our yearbook category for you to choose from, including Our Year 2020, 2020 Yearbook, Highlights of 2020, Our 2020, Moments of the Year, Our Year and Lovely Memories. You can also choose from our CEWE PHOTOBOOK themes, including 2020, Our Year in Pictures, Our Family and 2020 Light. As you can see, there’s so many options available to you to make your photo year book with ease.

Top tip: When you first start your year-in-review book in the software, you’ll be met with two design options: Create with Assistant and Start Designing. We recommend choosing Start Designing as it provides you with a blank photo book design. This way, you can pick your template and theme, then simply drag and drop your images into the photo book where you want them.

What Size Photo Book Should I Choose?

So much can happen in a year, so we highly recommend choosing our Large Landscape CEWE PHOTOBOOK or Square CEWE PHOTOBOOK formats as they are the perfect size for featuring all your favourite photos from across the year. You’ll have plenty of space to also add text so that you can document all the details you don’t want to forget. Plus, you can add extra pages so that you don’t have to forfeit any of your favourite photos. It will also make the perfect keepsake that you’ll love to look back on in years to come.

Whether you choose the fleeting moments of 2020 or another year altogether, show your loved ones how much you appreciate them with a Small Landscape CEWE PHOTOBOOK filled with treasured highlights of your year together. It’s the ideal size for sending to your friends and family in the post, especially for those you might not have been able to see as often this year. This handy size is great for keeping close by and makes a wonderful gift for those special people you’ve missed this year.

Top tip: Create a family year book that documents your favourite moments together from the last 12 months. Order a large photo book as a keepsake for yourself, along with smaller copies that can be individually personalised for friends and family, such as doting grandparents, aunts, uncles and godparents.

Reflect and put a spotlight on any memorable year, not just 2020, by filling your photo year book with whatever photos you wish. Check out our recent blog and Photo Yearbook page for more inspiration on what to display in your photo year book.

Don’t forget that you can also playback your favourite videos in your photo book too! Simply upload your videos to the Creator Software, then add it to your year book.
