    The link above for Fundy is slightly broken.


  2. Hi Guys – Love everything you do! Erica and others, have you tried Fundy’s album proofer? About the same price as album draft and seems like the same features. Any input?

    1. Hi Michael. My name is Tim and I work for Albumdraft. My job is to make sure everyone is super happy using our product 🙂

      We receive lots of positive feedback from users that have migrated from other album proofing programs… I think this particular feedback can be helpful: https://twitter.com/HHphotographic/status/558676430952091648

      Michael, having said that, I believe that the best way for you to form an opinion is to try both options for yourself. I invite you to create your account on Albumdraft now and try it for free with your first album: http://www.albumdraft.com/

      If you require any further information, feel free to contact me 🙂

      P.S. Don’t forget to come back here and share your thoughts after you’ve tried Albumdraft.
