Google Photos Albums vs. Photo Book
Google Photo Albums are a simple way to arrange your photos on your Google Photos account. You can arrange by the available presets (such as places, things, and collages) or you can create your own for occasions, people or years to help you organize your photos and make them easier to find. The difference between Google photo albums and a photo book is that a photo book is a physical book you can print and keep – an album is just Google’s name for a fancy folder stored online. Photo books are a great way to transform these albums into a real book you can keep on your coffee table or share with loved ones.
As Google Photos is a free service that can be synced with your phone, tablet, or laptop you probably have countless photos on your account just sitting there, doing nothing. How do you choose which ones to print? The great thing about My Social Book is that you don’t need to choose nor order every single photo, or image to put in your book - our algorithm arranges your photo book for you. If you have a specific set of photos in mind to create your photo book, then you can simply select the Google Photo album you want to use and watch as the pages fill with your memories. Don’t like some of the photos included? That’s ok, there is the option to delete any photos you’d rather didn’t appear in your photo book.
Make a themed album
• Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hannukah, and other holiday seasons;
• Family gatherings and events;
• Graduation and college years;
• Pregnancy stories and documenting your baby’s first year.
Think outside the box
• Pets - from puppy to full-grown pooch, kittens, bunnies, and other furry friends;
• Relationships, anniversaries, engagements, and weddings;
• A year of amazing memories and achievements;
• Relive a favorite year or decade;
• Remember loved ones;
• Celebrations of every kind!
Once you’ve chosen the theme of your photo book it’s time to create!
Family photo book
How many photos have you taken of your family? How many are on Facebook or Instagram or Google Photos?
A photo book is a great way to tell your family’s story and document how your family has grown over the years. Look back at when you first brought them home, their first day of school, time with grandparents, birthday parties, and little league events.
And once you’ve created your beautiful family photo book you can easily reorder and send it to grandparents and family, a gift they can cherish forever. You could send one as an alternative to a round-robin or create one to celebrate your children’s graduation. Why have one official photo when you can show the real-life and the fun moments that you managed to capture?
Share the love with a photo book.
How to create a Google Photo book
Just like with Facebook and Instagram photo books, you can create a Google photo book either from a specific album or timeframe.
So, you could create a photo book from your vacation album or look back on all the amazing things you did in a specific year.
There are so many memories you can include in your photo book!
What's the paper quality like?
Do you want a premium-quality book? Look no further. We work with half-glossy paper, which are perfect for photos or illustrations that need a little extra shine. You'll get 80 pounds (120 grams) silk sheets that are just thick enough for a premium-look finishing (and it helps make the books last longer too!). All the end sheets are archival paper and are made in an alkaline base (vs. an acidic base), and are all lignin-free. These books are made to last!
We are also proud to say that the spine of your book will be bound using the best technologies available. For quality reasons, Google photo album printing are limited to 500 pages. If you have a lot of content and feel like 500 pages won't be enough, we recommend you split your album in different volumes.
What is a Google Photo book?
A Google photos photo book is physical album created using the photos from an existing album of your Google Photos account. It can tell the story of your life, a specific occasion, or a special person.
Photo books have replaced traditional photo albums as the new physical way to display and keep all the digital photos you’ve created. Instead of printing individual photos, online software can make a unique book that you can then customize, print, and keep.
The best photo book is one filled with amazing memories, which is why Google Photos is a great place to select photos from, as Google’s generous free storage lets you store hundreds of thousands of photos. You’ll have plenty to choose from!
