Make a Photo Book and Share Your Pictures Online

December 31, 2009

Looking back over the year that has gone by, I’m sure you have many memories of milestones in your children’s lives, and in your own. You probably have photos of many of those special times, but have you put them into an album yet, to share with the whole family, so that the year is documented before it fades from your memory? If sticking prints into a traditional album seems too much like hard work, why not create an album, and share your pictures at the same time, online.

Sharing pictures online is free with many photo-sharing sites as long as you place one order per year with them. This could be for some straightforward prints, or for a complete photo book – a printed album that you have laid out yourself, with text and captions and whatever else you want to include. The theme and layout is up to you. All you have to do is to upload your photos to the site and work with them within the photo book interface.

The great thing about making photo books online is that you can see how your photos look together without having to print them out first. You can look at alternative page layouts, change your mind, replace a picture and play with all your favorite pictures for as long as you like until you have your book just right, before you have it printed. Some pages can have just one full-size photo taking up the whole page, others can have a selection of small thumbnails, so it is easy to put together a varied and interesting album to tell the story of your year,

Even better you can e-mail an invitation to selected friends and family to view your photo book online, so they can look through your photos easily and if they want to they can order themselves a printed copy. The photo books are printed on good quality paper, just like a glossy coffee table book, so look really professional too.

If it is taking you too long to put together your photo book, you can always invite your friends and family to look through your photos anyway by sharing your online album with them via e-mail. And as long as you order a few prints once a year, your photos can stay securely stored on the site until you next have time to work on your photo book.
