When you’re designing and retouching an album, you likely move between multiple applications like Photoshop, InDesign, Lightroom, your favorite browser, email app of choice, and whatever other software you may have installed to make your workflow easier. How fast do you think you are moving between them?
The most important metric that will determine how successful your album offering is, is the time it takes to deliver it to your clients.
