Design your photobook using our free photobook software
Some people find photobook software frustrating, but our brand new Cahoots Easy Designer photobook software makes it really easy for you to create your own photobooks and other photo projects.
At its simplest, our Easy Designer photobook software just requires you to drag and drop. But with Expert Mode switched on, you can access lots of fancy functionality to really make your photobooks something special. With Easy Designer, you can apply many creative effects like drop shadows, backgrounds of any colour, page embellishments, and transparency.
No matter what platform you choose for your photobook software, you’ll get to use the same highly functional Cahoots Easy Designer application.
Download Easy Designer for macOS or Windows using the buttons below. Subscribe to our mailing list (see form opposite) and you will receive details on how to get a free upgrade to layflat paper on your first book, if you are a bona fide first time customer of Cahoots.

Bring your own photobook software
If you prefer to use other photobook design applications (e.g. InDesign), we are pleased to let you know that we can still produce a beautiful Cahoots photobook. A nominal setup fee, will apply, on top of our standard pricing. (This covers the labour required to take your output and convert it for processing using our in-house photobook software tools and associated workflows.)
We are able to take your correctly sized PDF output from a suitable application. However it must meet certain requirements, including page sizes and allowance for bleed. Please review our book specifications, before you start designing your book.
Design your photobook using professional album design software
Cahoots is pleased to have our most popular book formats included within Fundy Designer professional photobook layout software. Simply choose one of our incorporated book formats and use the smart layout functionality of Fundy Designer to complete your design in no time.
If you decide to purchase a Fundy Designer license, Cahoots customers can make use of preferential pricing. Contact us if you are interested in purchasing a license for this software. (In order to export a book for production, a purchased license is required.)
Note that Fundy Designer will only layout the inside pages of your book. So for a custom cover, you will need to supply a separate file. For best results, we suggest using the Cahoots Easy Editor to create a cover. Contact us for further instructions.
