Wow are these things great! I have a niece who is just over 2 years old now, and she's been fighting a childhood cancer. Apart from the bald head, she doesn't look sick, and the fight has been completely successful up to this point.<br><br>My brother and best friend besides my wife has a birthday coming up, and I thought, "What do you get a brother who's been fighting to save his daughter all year?"<br><br>You could give them a website/forum, but I did that a year ago. You could give him a healthy daughter, but that's beyond my abilities.<br><br>But then it hit me. I had a ton of digital photos, he just got a camera, but I'M the only one with a Mac. I ordered a book with iPhoto, it was here in under a week, and it's gorgeous. It's full of pictures of her, and she'll enjoy have it read to her a zillion times a day, since she's the star and all.<br><br>The price was a bit steep for 19 pages ($60 when the smoke cleared), but as Steve probably knew, the value is worth every dime.<br><br>USER'S NOTE: Even if iPhoto tells you the quality of a certain image may not be optimal, it still comes out very good, all things considered.<br><br>Just wanted to share..<br><br>Do you rhumba? Excellent! Now pick a rhumba and sit down.. GM
That's great! How about making an iTools photo page from iPhoto and posting your niece's pics for people to see? :)<br><br>--<br>I am Dyslexic of Borg. Fusistance is retile. Your a$$ will be laminated.
NTO1, your neice is in our prayers... I hope she can pull through it... <br><br>Thanks for the information about the photo book turning out great... my wife is actually planning the same thing to give my brother's fiancee for their wedding gift, and I'm glad to hear that the books turn out well.<br><br>Statistics are like a bikini. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.<br>-- Aaron Levenstein

I'll publish a page. (That will be in a week or so..)<br><br>But here's a little pic in the meantime:<br><br><br><br>This is a recent one, with her hair growing back. It actually didn't make the book, but one like it did.<br><br>Thanks for your kind words and thoughts,<br><br>NTO1<br><br>Do you rhumba? Excellent! Now pick a rhumba and sit down..

Nice touch, NTO1!<br><br>My wish for your niece is one day, when she has a family of her own, she'll share this great gift with them - a testament to her courage and strength.<br><br>[color:red]Alec</font color=red>
Thanks. I hope you're right. <br><br>YA KNOW WHAT'S WEIRD DEPT:<br><br>Most books I read when I was a kid escaped my adult memory, except for Curious George who floated a paper hat/boat (?) down a little river. However, I never had a book about me and my family that could be read to me.<br><br>What's weird is that for my niece Isabelle, she will have a childhood book not only about herself, but documenting some of what's happened this year. (I left the hospital shots out.) Still, imagine how weird it would be to have such a year not only documented for you, but actually as a picture you book you liked to read?<br><br>Weird, huh?<br><br>Do you rhumba? Excellent! Now pick a rhumba and sit down.. GM
