Make a photo book with Pho­tos turn your pre­cious pho­tos into a phys­i­cal me­mento

Mac Format - - CONTENTS - Hol­lin Jones

dig­i­tal pho­tos are com­mon­place now, but there are still times when you want to print a phys­i­cal book of your im­ages, per­haps to re­mem­ber a fam­ily event or

hol­i­day, or to give as a gift. Ap­ple’s Pho­tos app al­lows you to do this and has a great bal­ance of fea­tures and us­abil­ity.

From your photo li­brary or an al­bum in Pho­tos, choose to cre­ate a book, select from the var­i­ous theme, size and pa­per op­tions, then drag and drop im­ages onto pages. You can change any page lay­out, add text, and set the num­ber of pages as well. When you’re fin­ished, the book can be ex­ported as a PDF or sent off to an on­line photo-print­ing com­pany from within the app.

Ap­ple is set to dis­con­tinue its own print­ing ser­vice soon, but Pho­tos prompts you to down­load a third-party ex­ten­sion from the Mac App Store – Shut­ter­fly, Mimeo Pho­tos and ifolor De­signer are a few of the op­tions – which repli­cate the ‘de­sign and send’ tools from Pho­tos. Which­ever you opt for, this is your chance to re­con­nect with mem­o­ries in a phys­i­cal for­mat.
