Creating a photo book can be time-consuming, but there are quick alternatives. Here's how to make a great booklet for your loved ones for Christmas in no time at all.
How to create a booklet quickly and easily with your photos
You can easily design your own individual pocket-sized mini photo book in 13x13 cm format on our website via the online editor, the ifolor app or via the ifolor Designer, which is our own design software.
All options enable you to create a booklet quickly and easily. By using the ifolor Designer and the ifolor App your work will be saved and you can easily access it again at any time and continue designing.
Editing and adding photos to your booklet
It is very easy to design your own individual photo booklet. You start by choosing your preferred design template. There are 3 different design templates to choose from in the online editor and there are 4 available in the ifolor app and ifolor Designer. In addition to a design with a bokeh effect, you can also add frames to your pictures in the booklet or insert them over the entire surface. Whilst editing your photos you can change the design at any time.
The next step is to add your pictures after you have decided on your design. Through the ifolor App you can access the photos on your smartphone. You can upload photos from your hard drive via the website or the ifolor Designer and then make your final selection. The booklet offers you space for up to 100 of your favourite photos. Your selected photos are automatically placed in the ifolor app. If you want to change the order of your pictures, simply click on the desired picture with your finger and select the "Replace" option. Now you can select in the image overview which photo should be placed in which order. In the online editor and in ifolor Designer you can easily insert and move your pictures using drag & drop.
A little tip: it is also easy if you would like to change the order of the pages. Simply display the overview of the entire book and click on the page you would like to move and then drag it to where you would like to have it.
You can crop your photos in square format before uploading them to help save you some time. By doing so your pictures will have perfect image detail and they will be placed directly into the booklet.
Further editing options
Once you have added your photos to your booklet you can edit them. In addition to cropping and rotating, various filters are available. You can edit each picture individually. You can also use the online editor and ifolor Designer to adapt the layout of individual pages. To add the finishing touches to your booklet, you can add a nice title to the cover. Simply tap the textbox and enter the text of your choice. You can customise the text and change the font size, colour and font type. You can specify whether the text should be centred or left or right aligned. If you create the booklet via the online editor or via the ifolor Designer, you can also insert and edit the textbox on the individual book pages by adjusting the layout.
