But how can you create a photobook so quickly?

  • by friend
  • by albums (from Facebook)
  • by #tags (from Instagram)

Then, with just one click, your selected group of photos transforms into a beautiful album complete with titles, likes and comments. Ready to download, share with friends, or order a quality printed copy in under 1 minute.
