The future for photo books looks good. With the appropriate choice of materials and production processes, photo books will preserve digital photos. All that is needed is to define the relevant test methods and develop specific requirements. The result will be improved photo books that better meet customer needs, further accelerating growth within the photo book industry. Unfortunately, the photo book industry is fragmented and many issues are highly controversial; consequently achieving consensus necessary for standards development will take time.

Photo books meet all necessary requirements for photo preservation. We simply need to ensure that this message reaches consumers. Once consumers understand these benefits, photo books will achieve their true market potential.
