Back when I first tried the service, I was very disappointed. Books made from Aperture were fine for passing around to family, but they simply weren’t good enough quality to even consider selling to clients.

That all changed a few weeks ago. The 2.1.2 update specifically improved Apple’s printing service. I only tried the book printing service, but assume that similar quality would be available for all items such as cards and calendars.

Color reproduction exceeded my expectations and images held up, even when enlarged to full size in the 8 1/2 x 11 book. Images were sharp and crisply reproduced. I believe that the higher quality your original images, the higher the book quality will be. As it is with all such printing services.

The dust jacket was beautiful and really set off the hard cover book. I can easily see professional photographers using this service to put books together quickly for sale to clients.

The book cost $54.05 including $7.99 shipping by FedEx ground to Seattle. I placed the book order on November 4 and received the finished, printed book on November 12. Eight-day turnaround, including shipping is very good for something of this caliber.

You can save money by printing fewer pages, selecting a smaller book size or by printing soft-cover rather than hard-cover books.

If this single experience is any indication of the quality of the new service in general, then I can highly recommend it.

UPDATE: Amazon has Aperture 2.1 on sale for $156.99.

  3. Aperture and iPhoto are the both apple software, but I think it may have been your podcast that informed me that apple is uses different companies to do the printing for each program… is that correct, or does my memory serve me wrong?

    What I’m getting at is this – can this post also be a testament to the print quality of iPhoto books, or not?

  5. Thanks for this review. I ordered a book through Aperture a couple months before the quality update and was completely disappointed. After complaining Apple gave me the option of a refund or to print it again for free. I took the refund, but I may have to give it another chance now.

  7. Thanks for the review Scott. I had made some books using Aperture in the past and found them lacking in quality somewhat. I’ll give them another go now that the quality seems to have improved!

    I assume European orders benefit from the same improvements?

  8. Okay.

    So I use Lightroom. But I’ve considered using Aperture simply for this service.

    The question is, does Apple use the same printing service for Aperture as iPhoto? Meaning is the quality of the printing the same between the two? Are they run on the same machine, or is there a separate Aperture printing process?

  10. I had a few books made by Apple’s book service last year and was quite disappointed in the quality -lots of print banding and cheap feel to it. Good to hear things are better now.

    Just received a large format wrap-covered hardback from Blurb which is excellent quality for the price.

  11. I’ve never used anyone but Apple and Aperture. I probably don’t have the keen eye the rest of you have, but everyone has been very pleased with the quality of the Aperture books I’ve done in the past. I just did another hard cover book using the upgraded service and, though I can’t exactly say why, it does seem like the quality is even better.

    The one problem I have run into on a couple of occasions is errors in the printing. For example, they recently printed a book with a page missing and a page duplicated. But when I complained they were very good about replacing it.

    It’s on my list to try one of the other vendors, but it is so darn easy to just hit that Buy Book button in Aperture …

  13. @Stephen @Dave here are the answers to your questions. I spoke with Greg Scallon at Apple who directs their print services division. Here’s what he said.

    Yes, currently iPhoto does share the same printing technology as Aperture. The paper, printing and covers are all identical. What sets Aperture books apart is the full flexibility you have to create your own custom layouts. You can move frames around, create new ones, change colors, modify backgrounds and add text wherever you want, giving you a truly customized end result.

    As for Europe, Apple does have a production facility on the continent. This gives them the ability to cut down on shipping times to European customers. European books are produced in exactly the same fashion as those from the US. Same press, same ink, same cases, etc.

  17. I don’t use Aperture instead I use Lightroom. Can anyone tell me my options in Lightroom to produce high quality books like these? Maybe there are other services that are as good as the Aperture option that I don’t know about (topic Scott?). I have iPhoto on my Mac but like the sound of being able to change the frame layout at will in a book. Thanks for your input.

    Thanks for the clarification re: Aperture vs iPhoto printing. I know you guys discussed this on the show a couple weeks back. I think it’s worthy of a clarification in the podcast.

    I’m deciding between Lightroom and Aperture now and knowing I can get the same quality printing service from iPhoto (without the flexibility that doesn’t mean much to me) means I don’t really have to consider that aspect.

    Thanks.

  23. I understood that MyPublisher.com made the photobooks for Apple. I have made books with them in the past and always been very happy. Recently I had a book all made in Aperture and decided to redo it with the MyPublisher software (not as flexible) because there are OFTEN discount codes to use when ordering from them directly. I was ordering 5 softcover books and the 50% off savings made it worthwhile. I haven’t seen those kinds of discounts available through Apple.

  30. Tx for the heads up on this Scott,

    I ordered a book via Aperture before the 2.1.2 update and was truly dissapointed with the quality, twice actually. But I must say Apple support did not make an issue out of it and in both cases refunded my money immediately, I didn’t even had to sent the book back!

    I’m really curious how it will turn out now so I’ll try again.
    But I’m definitely interested in a comparison of these services as well, that would be very usefull indeed since one can choose between many different services which tout different options, but in the end it’s always the quality of the prints that counts!

  38. I’ve been using these services from the beginning and the ‘evolution’ is amazing!

    In particular, I self publish a family calendar with all of the family genealogy on it. It makes for a challenging (for me) but useful holiday gift for the relatives.

    I just saw the ‘improved’ version of it at the local AppleStore and I was very impressed with the quality of it. It’s as good as any I’ve seen in the book stores.

    Scott, thanks for the heads up … I will be looking forward to this year’s calendar, soon! Happy holidays and good shooting to everyone!

  44. You don’t need to convert to either. Aperture just takes the master images with your adjustments and does the conversion for you. One of the amazing things about this is that laying out the book and ordering it took less than 20 minutes.

  46. I downloaded the Aperture 2 Trial this summer and to test it out as much as I could I even made a custom layout hard cover book. The results of that book (anniversary gift to my wife) were amazing, along with the reactions I got. Like many I am doing the “Should I get Aperture, Should I get Lightroom” dance, but features like this book printing make me look more at Aperture. At the end of the day for me photography is about making cool photos and sharing them, and I just loved sharing pics with my wife in this book format.

    The layout and ordering for me was also under 30 minutes and was lots of fun!

  48. Does anyone know exactly what the difference is between 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 on this? I would guess they upped the dpi from 200, which is what 2.1.1 uses. Otherwise I’m not sure how a software update could improve the off-site printing service.

  50. Scott – Thanks so much for taking the extra effort to contact Greg. I feel really constrained by the iPhoto layout software, because it seems to crop photos into frames of it’s own shape and size… the fact that aperture will allow me to set the photo and frame to the aspect ratio I think best might just be enough to push me over the edge, and make me go out and buy it.

  52. Thanks for the reply Scott!

    One thing I’ll add for anyone using this service in UK/Ireland is that there are no shipping options, so the turnaround is not as quick here as Scott’s review describes. In my experience once the books are printed it takes 8-10 working days to deliver. I believe the printing facility is in Prague so for anyone in central Europe it ought to be quicker.

    I’d like to see some expedited shipping options over this side of the pond, especially around Christmas and the holidays. I’ve mailed Apple about it. These books and products are excellent gift ideas.

I have tried making a book in iPhoto, but I found it a bit limiting, but when Martin showed us how flexible and dynamic the book making tools were in Aperture, I thought I would give it another go. I would be curious how the flickr printing QOOP stacks up. It looks like child’s play compared to the Apple printing service.

  61. Thanks for the advice on the photo books. Last year I used iPhoto for a photo book of shots from a holiday to China. I’ve had many comments about how professional the printing is (the content gets other comments altogether :)

    The family has just returned from another China holiday this year and it falls to me to prepare another book. While I’m happy with iPhoto – even it’s limits are helpful at times as I would otherwise fall into analyse paralysis checking every option available – this maybe the push I’ve need to move into Aperture.

    Again thank you Scott for the effort you (and the other TWIPpers) put into this site.

    Well al I really wanted was that “edit Layout” button that the books have.
    because i really like the way you can adjust the boxes together.

    Can I put the book pages online some how??

  71. I used the Apple Aperture service recently to print a book as a “first year” anniversary gift for my girl friend. The overall quality of the book and images over-exceeded my expectation. She loves it! I live in Hong Kong and not sure where Apple prints books for customers in Asia. It took them 2 days to print the book and about 12 days to ship it to me, a bit too long but well worth it!

  72. Scott, glad to see this post. My daughter and I are just
    starting to make a book. I downloaded the Blurb program
    and started playing around with it. The price seems good
    for the quality that they say you get. The killer for me is
    that if you want to do a two page spread you have to
    use same picture twice on different pages and adjust by moving the
    photo around tell I guess it looks good. With Aperture you just drop
    your photo onto the page and done. For this reason alone
    I think we are going to make our book in Aperture. I have both
    LR and Aperture. I think I will select the my raw photos and
    import them to Aperture do my adjustments and create my book.
    Thanks again Scott and everyone else who posted.

  74. Yay my prints arrived tonight. I ordered a bunch but most were just 5×7’s for the family. Those I found to be great quality. A few were 8×10’s witch I also love but two were 16×20 and man do I really love seeing my photos that large! I posted a few shots of the one 16×20 and three of the 8×10’s together. I ordered on Thursday at 9:00 pm, sucked it up and paid for 1-3 day shipping ($10 for over 50 prints) and they arrived at 6:00 on Monday! Pretty amazing since PA is about as far way from California as you can get. I really hope this talks someone into buying a $10 16×20 print just to see what their work looks like on paper.

    I’ve received two photo books recently. One from MPix that I ordered and another as a gift from a more boutique service provider. The one from MPix had better assembly quality and the print quality compares with their regular prints.

    I’d love to see a head-to-head comparison between the book printing services – Shutterfly/Kodak/MPix/Apple/others

    Thanks for the podcast, been listening for a while and always seem to pick up something new.

  84. I recently helped our three cats make a calendar for my wife for Christmas. The cats wanted my wife to have a calendar full of pictures of… you guessed it… themselves! I have had a book printed from Aperture and was impressed with the quality and price. The calendar is easily worth the ~$35 total it cost me to have the calendar printed and send to me way up here in Canada. The cardstock they printed the calendar on is much thicker than I was expecting, and the pictures are pretty good too. I find them to be a tad muted in colour but I am very happy with the results of the iPhoto calendar and will gladly order more.

    No one tell my wife now!
