Now you can take your Flickr photos and bring them into the physical world. Flickr has announced a new service that can turn users’ digital Flickr libraries into physical photo books. The new Flickr Photo Books service will “analyze your photos and intelligently crop, position, and place them automatically,” according to Flickr. The company says it is easy and that your collection “can go from Flickr to photo book in as easy as one click.”
You enter the product editor and choose the photo set you want to include. You can edit, crop, zoom, and position photos manually, or you can have Flickr’s system do it for you. Books have a maximum of 240 pages, and they arrive as 11″ x 8.5″ glossy hardcovers. It’s a fast and easy way to create a book.
The printed collections are $35 for a book with up to 20 pages. Extra pages cost $0.50. You can expect your book to arrive in 5 to 7 business days. The service is currently available only to those in the US. Now you can make that coffee table book that you have always wanted. That’s not a bad price and it’s an interesting way for the company to earn some extra scratch too. What do you think? Wanna make a photo book?
