If you are anything like me you have tons of photos of your family, vacations, birthdays, and special occasions. I love to take pictures. I like to bounce between my DSLR, point and shoot, and iPhone and capture the big and small moments of life. I have thousands of pictures uploaded to my computer and that’s where they live. All our memories sit there trapped on our computer. I used to print all our pictures, but then I ran out of time to put them in albums and so they just sat in a box and were never looked at. Then I started making digital family yearbooks and albums for special occasions like birthdays and vacations, but making a photo book takes time…and right now I am lacking time.
I just discovered Chatbooks and it has changed my life! Chatbooks is an app for iPhone (they are working on creating an Android app) that creates automatic photo books from your Instagram feed. It’s awesome, you receive a 6×6 photo book containing 60 pages (1 photo per page) for $6 with free shipping. Each page will have your photo, date, and any captions you wrote. You can even exclude photos from your feed that you may not want to include in your book. I love it because I don’t have to think about it at all. Once I have 6o new Instagram photos Chatbooks will automatically send me a new book. Plus the spine of the book lists the date range and volume number so you can easily put them in chronological order.
Don’t use Instagram? No worries, Chatbooks can also create books from private chats that you setup or even a custom book straight from your camera roll. Custom books can have up to 300 pages and start at $6 plus shipping.
You will receive a 6×6 paperback photo book. The pages are a nice heavy weight and the printing is of good quality. You can personalize the title of the books and choose your cover photo if you like. You can also order duplicates if you want to share with family and friends.
Our first books just arrived and my girls love to flip through them. And I love having some memories that aren’t trapped on my computer or phone.
Go, download the app, and start preserving your memories so your whole family can enjoy them! You will be so glad you did!
What do you do with all the pictures you take?
