Let us do the work!
Albums are so much work, right? Wrong! We offer colour correction, album design and proofing with every album. Upload the image files, specify the album, and we do the rest. You and your client can review and approve the design online before confirming the order.
Album design by Queensberry is available for all our books and albums. A small per-page charge applies.
How it works. Please send us only the images you want to appear in the album, and ensure they are in the order you want them to appear. You'll receive an initial design within 3-5 days. You and your clients can review the design draft online, request changes and approve the final design using Workspace Album Proofing (below). The first 20 edits (adjustments to image placement, image swaps etc) are free, after which charges apply.
We offer two services. Standard album design is timeless and simple, and focuses on the images and the story they tell. We can add a contemporary, dynamic, asymmetrical touch to the layouts on request. For Photo Books and Flushmount albums we offer an optional Decorative design service that introduces background images or colours, reduced opacity, overlapping images and other elements.
Design is normally charged with the book or album itself, but if your order is cancelled for any reason, or isn’t confirmed and paid for within 120 days, we charge the design fee separately.
Colour correction and artwork
As with album design, colour correction is charged on a per-page basis and charged with the book or album. However we don't colour correct the layouts until the album itself has been confirmed and paid for.
Basic colour correction (books and albums only)
We individually correct each image file on the page, adjusting RGB colour values, density (exposure, brightness) and contrast across the entire image. We can colour correct albums that you've designed yourself provided you supply layered PSDs — so that we can colour correct each image independently.
Premium colour correction
We offer Premium colour correction for all our prints and products, not just books and albums. Premium offers even higher consistency and quality. In addition to adjusting colour and contrast etc, we optimise skin tones, shadow and highlight detail as much as the file allows, and pay particular attention to key points such as bridal dresses.This is not an artwork service, although we may remove minor file imperfections where we notice them. In books, albums and box sets we aim for consistency across all the images.

You'll find lots of support articles and video tutorials about the Workspace Designer in our Help Centre.
Free album proofing
Before your album design goes into production we ask you to confirm the order details and pay. We don't require your client's approval of the album design as well, but most photographers ask for it.
If you've used our design service, or the Workspace Album Designer, Workspace Album Proofing is a transparent and intuitive way for you and your clients to communicate requests for changes and, when ready, to approve the design before you place the album order. And you won't need a paid plan to use it.
New functionality and a simplified interface make Workspace a great solution for managing your Queensberry album designs.
