1. Create

Creating a photo book with My Year is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

2. Browse

Your moments are arranged in your Year Book in chronological order, 2 per page. The book is available in 2 sizes and can fit up to 1000 photos on 500 pages. Flip through your year’s memories, page after page; switch your phone to landscape mode for a better view.

3. Customize

To make the experience of book creation as smooth as possible, we don’t filter your photos – all of them are imported into your photo book, without exceptions. By default, the latest photo on your Facebook or Instagram timeline is set as a cover. If there are some photos in your Year Book that are not worth printing out, if you want to change the book cover, show or hide the photo captions – you can easily do it straight from your phone, by tapping the pencil and selecting which customization you want to make.

4. Share

Happiness is only real when shared: hit the “Share button” after your book is done and let your friends browse through your year’s memories, encouraging them to recollect their special moments.

There is more!

Each book has a private link that you will receive by email, so that you can have the access to the book form your computer. Click the link, or sign in with your Facebook account on our website. You will immediately see the book that has been created most recently. Now you can customize it by adding more moments from your computer, Dropbox, Flickr, Picasa and other sources; setting 1, 2, 3 or 4 photos per page, changing the background color of the pages, editing each caption, rearranging pictures and more. You can also invite relatives and friends to add photos to your album by sending a private link via text message, email, Twitter or Facebook.

Pick the book size, add a personal quote on the first page of your Year Book, customize the back cover in order to make your photo book even more personal. Professionally-bound hardcover books are printed  on silky, high-quality thick paper and will be delivered for free to any place in the world within 7-10 business days.
