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.
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.
