Epson Computer Tip: StoryTeller -
Quick Digital Coffee Table Books

Now there’s a wonderful, yet quick alternative to making your usual labor of love, an entire scrapbook – StoryTeller kits. This is a fast, easy way to create a glossy photo book with your computer. The all-inclusive kit contains everything you need to transform digital photos into a beautiful, hard-bound photo book that you print with a regular size printer and assemble yourself at home! The kits come with glossy pages in either 5x7 or 8x10, and include a glossy book cover, and easy-to-use software that lets you enhance and place up to 20 pages of photos.
It’s easy to use:

Open a digital photo file.

2. Click on and drag the photos you want to use.
3. Pick out the professionally-designed page layouts you want to use for each page. You get 6 different book styles with 10 pages each, for a total of 60 unique page layouts and 18 cover selections.
4. You can mix and match the page styles if you like. You can choose to let the program do it automatically too for an even faster book!

If you make pages one at a time, lock each page when you’re done. It will save the photos in this position even if you change other pages.

6. When all your photos are placed and you’re sure they’re where you want them, add all of your text last.
7. Here’s how you add text: click where you want the text to go, and start to type.
8. To finish, print the cover. You can add titles to the front and back covers, as well as along the spine.
9. The photos you placed throughout the book show up automatically as sneak previews on the back cover.
10. You can even print an inscription inside the front and back cover flaps.
11. Use a letter size printer to print the pages and covers.
12. Then cover it with the clear plastic transparent sleeve for protection like the ones you see on library books when you’re all done.
13. In no time at all, your coffee-table book is complete.
To assemble the pages, no cutting, gluing or cropping is needed. This unique design lets you bind your pages into the hard-cover book in just seconds. You’ll end up with a quality book that would do any bookshelf or coffee-table proud!

So get those photos out of your digital camera and enjoy them printed in a book. It’s simple, and the results are so impressive, you’ll want to make several as gifts for family and friends.
