making memory books.


After creating an instagram book last month from my tried and true favorite, Blurb, I took them up on an offer to create a book of all my favorite facebook photos.

I've used Blurb before here and here and here, and I absolutely love working with them.  The books are easy to create and edit, and all my books have also shipped sooner than expected.  Love that!

I will say that creating my facebook photo book (and my instagram book) was a little different than the previous photo book I made, as Blurb automatically pre-populates the book with the photos.   I honestly could have ordered it right then and there, but me being the type A person I am, I wanted my own captions (or none) as opposed to the comments and original facebook captions.  One could opt to have their facebook comments published on all or some of the photos.  I also wanted my photos in a specific order.  Other than that little bit of reorganization, it was super duper easy.

The great thing about Blurb's facebook photo book is that you can import any photos from any of your albums, photos that you are tagged in, or any photos that your facebook friends have made public.
