p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Anyone using Fundy Software Album Builder?


The new 5.1 version is out this week. I started testing the trial with my CS6.

They have a 20% until Monday.

How many people here are using this and what do you think about it?


Thanks

I've been using it for years. I love it. Plenty of people will argue you should use InDesign instead, but really the Fundy thing is super straightforward and very simple unless you really just don't have a clue about photoshop.

I have been using Album Builder since V3 and I LOVE IT!! Version 5 is the best yet. A lot more control and a cleaner UI. I manually designed a 32 page book in less than 1 hour. THe auto feature can do a book in about 15 minutes. Its really a great program.

I have a friend who uses it. She says that the main time to build an album is in selecting the pics for each spread. After that it is super fast.

I used it for years. Now I use ID. Fundy was great, but the time it took to actually insert an image from bridge was just too slow. ID is instant because it references the images, it doesn't actually use the full files until you export.

How hard was it to switch to ID?

ID has a somewhat steep learning curve because it can do so much. However, once you understand the program it can be quite easy. There are also tons of tutorials available.

I tried Fundy too, but as mentioned using the full rez images can create a slow down depending on your computer. Even on a fast system *I* prefer the UI of ID and FotoFusion (for album design).

Thanks all. I bought it last night at $239. Price is up again to $299

The allow you to install it in up to 2 PCs. So I can have it at home with my 27" monitor and tower PC and then on my laptop as well.

Once you have the photos it does saves a lot of time to put an album together. Event more, it creates the jpg that I can add to a website or my IPad to show the clients.
