Photo Masks and Design Frames

In addition to the simple coloured frames, our photo book creator offers you a great choice of theme designed frames and photo masks. A photo mask changes the contour of the photo turning it, for example, to a circle or giving it the form of a particular animal. Try this feature for your next Pixum Photo Book, especially if it's a gift for your (grand)children.

Maps and Travel Routes

The special feature for your travel Photo Book. Most of the modern cameras save GPS data with the snaps. Simply add photos to the book page and the software suggests a matching map to your travel. You can also add a route line to the map and put photo pins on the stops with your own photos.

Cliparts and Stickers

Cliparts are vector graphics that have the looks and feeling of a cartoon. By clicking on the button "Add further elements", you can download even more stickers to the photo book maker. Such cliparts are great if you're making a book for children or want to add some fun to the book story. There's a great selection of speech balloons for a comic book, too!

Time-saving Assistant

Our creative assistant can help you save time while you select images for the photo book. It also will make a book draft that you still can adjust page by page. It's a smart algorithm that arranges the photos to a good-looking book in no time and is the best choice for making a photo book on a particular travel or event. The assistant sorts the images either by date taken or by file name and you set the page number and how many photos per page you'd like to have. Within minutes, you get a neat book draft that you can now make perfect.

Shiny Highlights

That bit of luxury for your Pixum Photo Book cover or Greeting Cards - highlight your text with a gold, rose gold, silver or glossy colour embossing.

Tips on using foil highlights

Page Backgrounds

Use page backgrounds for a better showcase of your photos. Either a uni coloured background or colourful patterns or textures on various topics, be sure to find a bunch of favourites (by the way, you can mark these as "favourites" for easy access). Best suitable for photo books on a particular event such as wedding, birthday party or holiday.

Proven tips on choosing a perfect background

Videos in a Photo Book

Drag and drop the video onto a page - just like you do with a photo. In the printed Pixum Photo Book, the video will appear as QR code to be scanned by a mobile device. The video clip will then play on your smartphone or tablet. Choose the storage period in the shopping cart. We'll email you before it expires so that you can extend it.
