Softcover and hardcover books are currently available. The minimum number of pages for a book is 20, but you can now add additional pages to a maximum of 150. Steps for creating them follow.
- When the app home page opens, tap SHOP ALL if you are not already there.
- Slide the product categories list at the top of the page to the left, and tap BOOKS when it appears. Then tap the book you want.
- Select 22 or more photos and click DONE to proceed. You need 1 for the front cover, 1 for the back and 20 more for the individual pages for a basic book with a single photo on each page. Select more photos if you want to add more pages, or to show more photos per page. Learn more about selecting photos
- Once you've selected photos, they will be placed in the book. If you selected more than 22 photos, additional pages are added to include the additional photos. Tap a page to use any of these options:
- Tap PHOTOS and drag a photo from the bottom of the screen to the photo spot you want to fill or replace.
- Tap LAYOUT to view a variety of layouts, and tap the layout you want for the page. Layouts include variations with text, text-only, and multi-photo pages (up to 9 photos per page).
- Tap BACKGROUNDS to view the options at the bottom and tap one to apply it to the page.
- Tap a photo to zoom in, or adjust brightness and contract. Stretch the photo with 2 fingers to zoom in, and drag it with one finger to re-position it. Tap BRIGHTNESS or CONTRAST, make your adjustments and then tap the check mark. Tap Done to save the changes.
- For text areas, tap the text area, enter your text, and adjust the font, size, color and alignment as you like. When done, click the check mark on the upper right of the text editing panel.
- Tap the large + sign (see right) at the bottom of the screen to select another photo for the book.
- Tap the Save icon at any time to save your project to work on later (see note on saving below)
- Tap DONE to exit the page editing mode, and review your pages.
- In the review view, you can rearrange the order of pages in the book by holding one down, and dragging it to another position. This can only be done for interior pages, not the covers.
- Tap ORDER to add your creation to your basket.
- Tap CHECKOUT NOW to review your order and shipping options.

Also, if you need to stop your work, and finish it later, make sure to save before exiting. Then, to access your project again, tap the main menu, and select Saved Projects (below right).
Tip: Many customers find it easier to select photos before choosing a product, especially if they have just uploaded photos. When you select photos, you will see several options at the bottom of your library screen. Just click SHOP, select a product, and continue at step 4 above.
- The book cover finish is glossy with semi-glossy finish for inside pages; currently no other
options are available.
- Books have a minimum of 20 pages (+ front and back cover) but more pages can be added. Maximum is 150 pages (+ front and back cover).
