  • MARIETTA -- Lisa Wall recently got back from a trip to Virginia with her two girls, Caralyn and Christina.

    "Drove into D.C. Every day," Lisa said, "and went to the White House and all the monuments."

    Daughter Christina also enjoyed the trip. "We saw the WWII Memorial" she said. "We saw ducks there."

    Lots of good memories were made and more than 100 photographs. Pictures that Lisa admits usually just sit on her computer unseen.

    "We're not scrap bookers," Lisa admits.

    Now Kodak claims anyone can make a professional quality photo book in a matter of minutes with their new SmartFit Technology.

    After registering at the KodakGallery.com web site, Lisa uploaded the photos of her trip. Then she let ten year old Christina do the rest.

    To get you started, the SmartFit Technology automatically arranges the photos by event and date.

    "You pick what you want the cover of the book to look like," said Christina.

    Then she got to pick from dozens of designs and layouts. She rearranged and resized the photos, added backgrounds, and titles.

    In about an hour, Christina had her book like she wanted.

    "It was really easy," Christina said, "because most everything is automatic."

    Less than a week later, Christina's book arrived in the mail.

    "Wow," Christina said when she saw her book for the first time.

    "It looks really nice," she said. "It's got a hardcover and it looks exactly like I wanted it to look like."

    Lisa was also impressed with the quality.

    "It looks like something that came from a publisher," she said, "not from a photo company."

    Medium size books start at $35 plus shipping, paperbacks are $10.

    Our testers say they would make terrific gifts.

    "For the Kodak Photo Books," Christina and Lisa said, "our rating is two thumbs up."
