I was soooo relieved when I opened our wedding album to see the clarity of photos were better than I expected.
The pages are of beautiful thickness and feel very luxurious to flip through. The colours are true which I think is vital in such important photos.
I ordered a grand for us and the standard sizes for our parents and they were equally as fab.
A little advice for those looking into it... allow some extra room on the inside of the pages so you can see the photo properly without damaging the paper.
One thing I nearly had tears over was the software crashing... I lost 40 pages of the work I had done so BACK UP and BACK UP again!
I would absolutely use them again though
I have just finished and placed an order for my 8th Momento Photobook. I have used this wonderful product to compile 7 travel photobooks and my latest was one filled with treasured photos of our grand-daughter for her 18th Birthday. I love using Momento because it is so simple to use, so easy to upload your photos and so easy to use all the fabulous features - layout, frames, embellishments, backgrounds, adding text, etc. Momento is not a cheap product but it is so worth the end product. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a superior...quality finish in a photobook. Once submitted for production, the usual despatch time is 2 weeks (a little longer at the moment due to COVID 19). This is my go to for my photobooks. After 8 books I am very adept at using all the features and would not use anything else. Thank you Momento for capturing all my wonderful memories.
I spent 3 days doing my project because my 1st attempt was lost when programme crashed I started again and kept saving my work as I went then when I tried to upload the file programme said file could not be found While creating my book the programme crashed a total of 4 times PATHETIC
Great site, great product
Wonderful photo book from Momento for my daughter’s 18th Birthday. The software was so easy to use, the turnaround was very quick, and the product was just perfect. Always someone at the end of the phone if you need to check anything too. Thrilled with the book!
Finally put those England Trips in a great Photo Album
Just took delivery of my first book from you. It looks great!
Really pleased with it from a production perspective and how the printing has come out. Some other books I did with others seemed a lot darker and "muddier".
Looking forward to when I travel again and can make up another book.

Five Stars for a Five Star Product!
I just received my photobook today and it totally exceeded my expectations! The book is for my son's 21st birthday and his early years pre-dated digital photographic technology. Consequently, I took photos of photos that were 21 years old and the Momento software even made those look great! The software was very easy to navigate and whilst I used many of their special features, it was also super easy to upload additional embellishments. I spent quite a long time pre-project, researching a plethora of photobook service providers, trying to dec...ide which one was right for me. Part of my research involved reading the reviews right here, so thank you to everyone who took the time to critique Momento - your feedback was invaluable in the decision making process. The final outcome was a very slick, professional photobook - aesthetically pleasing to the eye and touch. Silky smooth, thick pages that scream elegance and a classy matt cover. Once, a very long time ago, I used another photobook provider and was bitterly disappointed. I will never divert from the Momento path. Totally awesome!

Using Momento Photobooks for Family Histories
The Momento Software is very easy to use and follow with lots of inspirational ideas for using special features such as layout designs, themes, embellishments and frames with a wide variety of text styles for writing or labelling as desired. Having spent many long years of research and writing the stories and gathering the pictorial and documentary collections for both mine and my husband's family history stories, I would not trust any other company to give justice to the quality of the book I expected. The feel of the paper as you turn the p...age is beautiful and invites you to read on with wonderful depth and array of colours , textures and patterns of embellishments to bring your work to life in a truly individulaized format and style. Having had a couple of queries regarding how to solve simple problems I was grately helped by most approachable and friendly staff to analyze my issues and given appropriate and well-timed feedback to my needs. Momento provides outstanding ways for one to celebrate and treasure special memories... so important in changing times as those which we are experiencing at present.
They did the impossible!
I was so apprehensive about my ability to create a photo book, I kept putting it off. In 2018 I had taken my 11 year old granddaughter to Spain to walk the Camino with me. It was such a wonderful experience- I was afraid that any photo book I could create wouldn’t do it justice. I asked for recommendations from friends, and Monento was one of the companies recommended. I liked the look of the website so downloaded the program. As I got more and more involved in creating the book, my confidence grew, and that is due to one factor only...- the incredible support I got from momento staff at every step. I called for help whenever I was stuck, and without exception everyone I talked to was gracious, patient, helpful, knowledgeable, articulate, clear, generous with their time, and encouraging. Making that photo book changed from being something I felt anxious about, to something I looked forward to working on. The program has lots of terrific features that make my amateur photos look their best, and streamline the process. I Watched the videos and used all the tips I could. I also got lots of great advice from staff along the way. The ability to share my book digitally with family and friends was a valuable and unexpected bonus. I was so delighted with the end result that I ordered two copies of Zoe’s Camino Adventure- one for Zoe and one for me, and I’m so excited about receiving them soon! Zoe and I were all set to return to Spain this year to finish our Camino- the pandemic has delayed those plans. Having this photo book to commemorate our first trip will be a wonderful compensation. I cannot thank you enough. Kind regards Cindy Young
High quality photo books
Have been using Momento Photo Books for a number of years now and couldn’t be happier. The books are close to professional standards. Downloading the software and organising your pictures is pretty easy considering the finished product is so good. 100% recommend using Momento. We produce one book every year to make sure we have our memories in print form.
Amazing service and quality product!!
Maitland International Salon of Photography enlisted the services of Momento Pro to produce 110 x A4, 54 page catalogs. The entire process was made super easy with the help of Libby and Lisa. The quality and cost of our order was very very pleasing. Thanks Momento Pro!
I am so impressed with the quality of Momento, and their software is easy to use. I have been using Momento for years and have always been happy with the results. Recently I had two Family History Books printed, this project took me nine years to complete. I am thankful that I entrusted Momento to print this project for me as their quality as always was excellent. What I consider to be equally important is the after sales service which I have found to be absolutely amazing.
Brilliant job! Thrilled with the quality.
I received my book today. The quality of the printing, paper and cover was brilliant. I’m so glad I went with your program. The program was easy to use and the template choice was excellent. The website was very helpful providing examples to inspire you.
I was extremely anxious waiting for my first book which had taken me 5 months to prepare. I am so thankful I went with Momento, the quality of the cover, paper and printing is just incredible, as well as great service when I needed advice. I am still speechless how amazing this book looks. Thank you so much and I can't wait to start on replacing 5 old typed family history books.
Easy to use, no restrictions with designing. However system constantly crashes.
Really love this product. It's very easy to use & I can design our photo book exactly how we want it. The only issue we have... and it's rather annoying is that the program is constantly crashing. If I don't save it every 5 mins... I risk loosing any work i have done since my last save. I have to restart my computer every time it happens to be able to reopen the program and continue working (it won't allow me to reopen Momento after a crash if I do not restart). It's pretty frustrating... I have learnt to save constantly!! I really do lik...e this product as I can do what I want... no restrictions when designing, etc Just really wish it wouldn't crash so much!!! Would love to have some advise/help to fix this problem we're having. Thank you
Thrilled with results. By Judy, 28th Dec, 2019
I have recently received my 2 large photo books of our travels. As this was my first experience with Momento after using another company, & as I had just used my phone camera, I was amazed at the quality.
The program was enjoyable & easy to use.
Great quality, excellent service!
We highly recommend Momento and have used their books to record our many overseas trips. Every album is beautifully presented with high quality printing and binding. We have had excellent service over many years! Thank you Momento!
I'm hooked on these Photo books
After seeing the Photo book my Sister prepared for my Parent's 60th Wedding Anniversary, I couldn't believe the quality of the reproduction of some very aged photos and the beautiful presentation. I decided to do one for my Daughters 21st Birthday and am working on my 2nd for my Wife of our wedding.
The software is very user friendly though if you get stuck there are very helpful people available to talk you through.
Overall an amazing way to preserve your memories and show the ones you love all the good times you have shared.
Questions & Answers
I used a system a few years back to create a photo video. I have not accessed it in years and now am unable to but want to share it with the person I created it for, to commemorate her sons life (he has passed on). Is this the same system? It was saved as MMP file.
Hi Sandy G, sounds like you created a slideshow and in my experience using Momento it does not have this function. If you Google 'photo videos' there are a range of products you could use. If you cannot access the original photo video you may have some problems and may need a professional like Geeks2U or a friend with advanced IT knowledge to access it for you. But I'm pretty certain Momento is not the right product. Hope you sort it out as this would be a lovely gift for your friend.
Hello ... I am trying to upload pictures from my photo libraby on my MAC i dont seem to be able to open my photo library any suggestions please
Hi Dee, apologies but I am a microsoft girl and have no knowledge of Mac. Can you still open your photo library in Mac (not through the Momento software Folders tab)? If so, can you save the file on your desktop and try to access it from there? Just a suggestion, Hopefully there is a Mac user out there who an answer your question.

Are your photos in the Mac Photos app, or are they in a folder?
Hil there, I have finished my photobook, saved the file but when I go to Upload there is no MASTER file. I have checked all my folders. I tried saving the file as a different version in another folder but it is not creating the master file. I have the .BAK, Proof and working file but there is no master file. What is going on? There appear to be no warnings or errors.
Libby J. and Geoff H.Momento
Once you have finished your book design, make sure you proceed to the Finish tab, which is where it will export all your page designs into the single Master File. The Finish tab is in the centre at the top of the software. (if you're on a Mac using the new Catalina version, this tab is now called the Export Tab)
Once you've completed the export, you'll find the Master file in the same folder as your Project file (mbk).
I hope that helps.
