What was life before SmartAlbums? Seriously, the edge SmartAlbums has over other design software I’ve tried is the amount of tweaks, adjustments, and shortcuts you can do AFTER the initial design…and its all so intuitive, quick and simple. Get it. Get it now.

The creative side of things is what I love and Pixellu SmartAlbums has saved me so much time on one of the more tedious parts of my job. Goodbye wasted time, hello creativity!

Our only issue with Pixellu SmartAlbums is that it’s too quick and easy to use. This is a problem because SmartAlbums actually makes designing layouts fun, and in less than 10 minutes we have to get back to our other, less fun work. It’s intuitive, simple, and has all the smart features we could ask for!

Gap Control

Handcrafted Templates

Human beings perceive beauty; computers don’t. This is why every single layout in SmartAlbums® is hand crafted by a professional graphic artist, not a mathematical algorithm.
