Flickr is a great place to upload your photos and then easy to store and share them with your family and friends. Creating a Flickr photo book is the best way to show off your high quality photos as well as everyday snaps you have captured in your life. With the new Flickr Photo Books service, in minutes, you can transform your beautiful photos into a professional-quality book in as easy as one click.
"Pick your favorite photo set, click on the Photo Book icon, and we'll automatically turn it into a beautiful book for you," says Flickr VP Tom Hughes. "In almost no time, you can turn your photos into something memorable, that we’ll send it right to your doorstep (or to a lucky friend or family member.)"That includes simple layouts, placement of one photo per page, and tools that will "analyze, crop, position, and rearrange your photos to look their best," the Flickr blog reads. Users can also go in manually and make tweaks, delete images, or reorder the pages.
Starting next week, US users will actually be able to purchase the books, which Flickr said are printed on premium photo paper. Users outside the continental US will have to wait longer. "Please stay tuned. We are working on bringing you Flickr Photo Books soon," the blog says.
It will cost you $34.95 for an 11″ x 8.5″ glossy hardcover book with matching glossy dust jacket 20 pages and $0.50 per additional page lustre paper. You can get started here.
