We just returned from a month-long trip to Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, and Berlin. How many pictures do you think we took? I used my iPhone 7+ and Jim used his Pixel XL phone as well as a Samsung Camera 2. We took over 3,500 pictures and videos between the two of us.
If you’re not making Albums, you’re not using Google Photos!
The album is great, and I look at it all the time, but, I want an actual book to put on the coffee table so anyone can pick it up and browse our photos. Guess what, Google just added that feature to Google Photos!
Start with an Album and it’s even easier to make a book
When I made my photo book, I started with the album. After all, I had already selected my best photos for the album – I didn’t want to start from scratch selecting photos from my library.
- Open the album
- Click the 3-dot menu
- Select “Create Photo Book”
- Click Next
- If your album has 100 or fewer pictures, they will all be added to the book. Since my album had many more, Google selected 100 for me. I could review and change their choices if I wanted, but I didn’t.
- Click Order, enter credit card and address.
