  1. Having just looked at the book builder and what it produces, I’m afraid I don’t agree that they got better. I can’t comment on the quality of the images when printed, but there was nothing wrong with these before. The main problems with the old book builder were that you couldn’t add stories, or comments to the book, and that you could only have one image per page. Both issues are still there. And to make it worse, the information that was added before about the photo, the date and the title, is no longer added. I would have to add this all manually to every photo, after having already added the title manually to every photo in Lifecake itself. I could understand if there was an option to include or remove this for the whole book, but to remove features from what was available before, as well as not fixing the issues that were there, this is a backward step for me.

    1. Hi Daniel
      Thank you for taking the time to review the book builder. We really appreciate you taking the time to feed back to us as it helps us make improvements.
      To answer your points, you can change the layout to up to 4 photos a page with some layouts allowing for comments to be added. Each page layout can be changed from within the book builder, there is a tab on the top left hand side. We will be feeding back that it wasn’t that easy to discover though.
      Thank you for feeding back about the ‘in app’ comments we do plan to bring this feature back to the book builder in due course.
      One final thing, I know you commented that quality wasn’t an issue for you, but it is worth noting that the quality of the HDbooks are second to none and a big step up from the previous.
      And thank you, we appreciate you taking the time to reply, your comments are important to us.
      Best wishes,
