After I’ve tested the Saal Digital Photo Book, I must say I’m not quite as happy with it as with the wall decor or the photo booklet.
Generally the photo book is well made. I went for the 28×19 format and 40 pages with matt photo paper and a glossy cover. The pages are nice and thick and easy to turn and the pictures are sharp and clear and the colours are very accurate.
The Saal Digital Software can be downloaded and is generally easy to use. Unfortunately you can’t add text if you use the Auto Layout Function. If you deactivate the Auto Layout Function to add some text and you activate it again, you lose the text again. And sometimes I couldn’t delete photos while using the Auto Layout Function and I had to save the project, close it and reopen it to be able to continue my work.
When I received the photo book I wasn’t quite as happy either as there was a printing issue on one of the pages with a line going through the picture and some sort of bloom on 2/3 of the picture.
So I took a photo of that page and asked Saal Digital whether they wanted to rectify it befor I wrote this review and they were happy to do so.
Today I received the reprint from Saal Digital and must say the colours are perfect. Unfortunately though the photo book obviously got bent during transport even though it was in a sturdy cardboard envelope and a soft protective envelope inside. So now the front and back cover are slightly damaged.
A shame really, I think it is a really good photo book and maybe I was just unlucky.
I must say though, that Saal Digital didn’t fuss about much, they did apologize and reprinted the book again and sent it out straight away. Now the Saal Digital photo book is as good as I would have expected. Thank you very much Saal Digital.
