  • Now it´s time to convert the photobook. Click on Tools >> Transform into a minibook.
  • By clicking on "Transform into a minibook" the program assistan will be opened, just click on "Next".
  • Accept and save your project.
  • Now that your project is already saved, we should press again on Tools>>Transform into a minibook.

Once you order your photo book, we can´t change anything. The different text, images and background layers are merged into the same picture, so can´t be edited.  We recommend you to check your photo book carefully before sending.

Don´t worry, Hofmann knows how to manage. Just close the program or turn off your PC, then restart Hofmann again. A new pop up will ask you to continue ordering your photo book. Accept and the process will continue at the same point that was interrupted.

Older versions of Internet Explorer or Service Packs on your system can affect the program download. Hofmann software needs Microsoft´s 2.0 .Net Framework to run. So if it is not on your system, try to download automatically and if you have any problem with the Internet connection try to:

candado.jpgCredit card payment means a safe and coded connection with La Caixa, one of the main European Banks. Nobody, not even ourselves, can see any data. Once the payment is has been made, the bank informs us if the process runs correctly. This way of payment is certainly less risky than paying by credit card in a shop or in a restaurant.

It´s only possible to pay by Visa or Mastercard, which can be of any banking organization.  The payment by credit card allows an automatic ordering and payment process, which simplifies paperwork and reduce costs. That´s why we can offer you lower prices and start the production immediately once you order your photo book.

It depends on the number and sizes of the photos and type of Internet connection. It can last with broadband connection between 20 and 40 minutes and with modem one  between one and two hours. It can seem a long time, but, having low flat rates, you can leave the computer connected.
