New Travel Photo Books – and How to Make It Easy to Follow Through

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could have a nice little travel photo book for every adventure you take? You may think you don’t have the time. We’re here to tell you otherwise, share our new favorite travel books, and give you the trick that will make your photo book come together effortlessly.

Chances are, you have a fun little getaway coming up. And we’re going to take a wild guess and say it’s likely that you hardly have time to plan it. We’ll even go further to conjecture that once you’re back, you’re full speed ahead with little time to reflect.

Travel Photo Books

This full-life, no-time scenario is reality for a lot of us, but there’s one simple trick to making sure you come away with a nice, printed photo book within a few weeks of your trip: edit your photos as you take them. That’s it!

Say you’re at the beach and you take five photos of your kids jumping in the waves. Once you’re back in the car and can review the shots you got, delete all but one. And say you see a picturesque composition shadow on a door, which makes you get all artsy and take 20 pics from 20 different angles. Again, delete, delete, delete. The reason is this:

When you get home from your vacation, all you will have to do is upload your shots into a single folder in your photo software – knowing there’s no editing to do. Then, simply open one of Mixbook’s great travel-themed photo books, upload your photos and click “Auto Fill.” From there, you can do minimal tweaks, then get it printed! All tolled, the process might take 10 minutes. And we’re sure you have 10 minutes.

Here are our favorite new photo books to choose from!

    I love your ideas, your photo books are awesome. I just spent a month in Southeast Asia and am working on a photo book. I prefer using you guys, but Shutterfly has a bunch of Asian themed stuff I can use on my pages.
    Can you guys do an Asian themed travel book?

    I am also looking for an Asian themed book. I really want to use Mixbook, I love the photo books, but….how long will the wait be for a Asian Themed photo book? I was waiting for your reply to the above comment, also wanting an Asian themed book.

    Hi Pam,

    Our design team created themes depending on the latest trending designs and popular looks. Although the demand for an Asian-inspired theme is low, you are welcome to create your own book from a blank canvas using our Blank Canvas photo book. You can upload stickers and backgrounds from anywhere you’d like. You just need large PNG or JPEG files.
