With today’s busy and hectic schedules, we hardly have any time to scrapbook, or even run to get our favorite pictures printed off. At Chatbooks, we wanted to give people a simple and quick way to have their pictures, and collect their memories, in a ready-to-go photo book.
Creating a Chatbook is quick and easy – it takes just 4 simple steps. Before starting, you’ll need to download the app and create a Chatbook account. This will allow you to save all of your pictures and books in one place and print pictures directly from your phone.
- 1. Add Photos & Select Photos.
You can add photos from 4 different places: Instagram, Facebook, Google Photos, or directly from your phone photo roll. You can select up to 365 photos to add to your Chatbook.
- 2. Make It Yours.
Add a Title. You can name or title your book whatever you please. Simply tap on the default title “My Book” to type in your own unique title.
Add Captions. You can add captions to each photo by clicking on a photo you’ve selected for your book and clicking “add caption.”
Layout Settings. By clicking the settings gear in the top right corner, you can change the layout settings. You can toggle to show avatars, captions, location, date, time, or cover title.
- 3. Invite Contributors.
Chatbooks is more fun with friends! Have your friends or family get the app and then share your code with them. When they enter this code when prompted “Have a Code?” you’ll all be able to add photos to the book.
- 4. Order.
Once you have added all the photos and captions you want, you are ready to order!
Quantity. You can order multiple copies of your Chatbook to share with family and friends.
