Photobooks ... anyone have reccomedations

Hello Folks,
I searched the forum and could not find anything on this topic.
Have just returned from a wedding and honeymoon type of holiday and parents are asking for pictures, we thought about creating a photobook as offered by many of the online photo printing services. I am looking at www.bobbooks.co.uk and www.photobox.co.uk and wonder if anybody has any experience, good or bad, of using these or know of an article reviewing these services.
regards,
SW.

Re: Photobooks ... anyone have reccomedations

Oh yes..... ....    have a look at my website  (link below).... created with the FREE software from
http://www.jalbum.net
You just sign up (register) FREE, then you can download the main prog and any "skin" you like.... you can choose from any of 200 designs...excellent free on line hosting too ! !.

Super friendly and helpful forum type site..... got any problems, someone will always be around to guide you through it..... the software I used had its own help suite with it, but I still asked questions and got professional type helpful friendly advice....
Good Luck  Enjoy.....

EDIT:-
P.S. you don`t have to create a "full website" like mine..... you just host the photo albums, (as many as you like) ! !

Shutter,
How does that turn it in to an actual physical book that can be given to his parents?

Re: Photobooks ... anyone have reccomedations

It doesn`t, but it is available on the net like a normal photo album, and can be accessed by relatives/friends all over the world.....
As it is JAlbum hosted, it is less likely to be "crawled" by google, etc., so remains more or less a personal album site...
HTH
Just for an example, this link is for FotoPlayer......  click on the linkys to the right of the photos, and you will get a different presentation based on the Fotoplayer skin, even adding music in background.... the demo`s show how the program works, and you can try most of the skins this way.....

You can create a book using Flickr and Qoop.
