Book quality equals that of any of the Apple offerings - and I’ve used Aperture, iPhoto and Photos. But Mimeo offers superior book creation to Photos which is the only one with active support. You are provided with excellent built-in page layouts and the ability to customize photo and text placement on your pages to your liking. Text options are extensive. If you are coming from Photos or iPhoto - prepare to don your creative cap. Apterure users should be satisfied - but they will give up some text effects, metadata integration and the ability to print to PDF instead of a hard copy. Customer support also gets 5 stars. As this was new to me, I asked plenty of questions - on line and even over the phone. All issues were solved competently, rapidly and politely.
