Album/Photobook Proofer - New!

InSpiredByYou now includes an online album/photobook proofer. Simply upload your album or photobook pages and let your client log in and view the album. The client can then “mark up” the album with comments and annotations. Those mark ups are then viewable by your album designer. You can make the necessary revisions, and upload a second revision to repeat the process.
