POP BOOK photobook

Pop Book – the sweetest of photobooks.

Back in my childhood photography meant taking pictures on film and then having it developed, which took days and it was only then. you would know if you had snapped it well or made a mistake, none of this instant previews on a screen. But of course it also meant you had everything printed out, so you could make albums up full of memories.

It was in my pre-teens I really remember digital cameras taking off and becoming something everyone could afford, then by my mid-teens you were starting to get camera phones, my first one. I believe it was a Sony, you had to click the camera onto the base of the phone every time you wanted to take a photo.

The evolution of digital photography has been fantastic, however the downside is so many photos get taken, uploaded to Facebook or Instagram and then never seen again and that is where Pop Book can help.

While cameras have evolved so have the people who sold and devolved films and Pop Book comes from a leader of this process FujiFilm and it is so simple to use.

The app to make Pop Book is available on both the iTunes store and Google Play and is free to download (so no reason not to try it).

Once downloaded the app allows you to upload photos from your phone, tablet, Facebook or Instagram with each book able to hold 21 photos. Once you have chosen you perfect photos you are able to crop, add filers or text to each photo, as well as change the order they appear in the book and the colour of border around them. Each edit option is simple to use as it takes just a tap of a button and I personally found the whole process streamlined and easy to follow.

After you are happy with how each photo looks it is time to upload and order, there are two choices to make about your book before you are finished and they include size; either 10 x 10 or 13 x 13 and if you want to go for a gloss or matt finish (you also have the option to share your Pop Book for free via social media).

Personally I went for a 13 x 13 gloss finish Pop Book and I think it is perfect, the gloss finish gives it that finishing touch which I adore and with each book costing just £4.99 including postage I honestly think they are a great way to not only print and store your personal favourite photos but to also allow you to print and share memories with your friends and family.

You can find out more about Pop Book over on their website and of course you can download the app from your favourite app store.

What do you think about the sound of Pop Book, can you see yourself using the app and buying one for yourself?

  9. Orli

    That is great, I have so many photos and am always on the lookout for a good way to organise them in photo-books. Thanks for the recommendation!

  10. Shell

  15. Tori Gabriel

    This sounds like a great idea but I’m on the lookout for a photo book that contains loads of pages. We’ve decided to print out all our family photos once a year as a photobook. These would make nice gifts though.

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      Ahh I’ve done some big ones before – trying to remember who with, I think Bob’s Books was one 🙂 x

    • The POP BOOK team

      Hi Tori,
      That’s a great idea, we are looking to introduce POP BOOK Photobooks with more pages in the future but if you are looking for premium photo books have a look at Fujifilm Create.
      Thanks,
      The POP BOOK team

  20. Shasta

    Oh my gosh! This is the cutest book ever. I love photo books but I have never heard of this brand. I will have to check them out.

  21. Teresa Bowen

    This seems such great value. Might have just solved a few Christmas present problems with this app.

  22. oana79

    I totally agree with you, I do miss the days when you could actually see your pictures in a photo album rather than on a screen. The Pop Book sounds like the best idea to keep those precious memories close and it is such a great price, too!xx

  23. Kelly Hutchinson

    This is a great idea for yourself or as a gift. I would give one to my daughter.

  30. Sarh S

    Those are some adorable pets! I need one of these photo books for the litters of kittens our momma kitty has had. And I guess one for the human children as well. haha

  31. Heather

    Oh my gosh! This is such a great idea! I’m going to have to do this with my kids’ photos!! They do tend to just get lost on Facebook and not seen again. Definitely have to do something about that.

  32. Jennifer Williams

    I need to get one made for our youngest son. He gets so frustrated because his photos are all on the computer and his brothers are all printed.

  33. coolchillmom

    How adorable is this! My entire family loves photo gifts

  34. tammileetips

    I love making photo books! We take so many pictures on our trips, photo books are a great way to look at our shots.

  35. Kara

    Looks like the perfect gift for someone who has everything

  36. Rebecca Swenor

    This sounds like an amazing photo book and app for sure. This photo book would make for a great Christmas gift for everyone in the family. Thanks for sharing the information.

  37. Franc Ramon

    I think pop book brings back the fun and nostalgia in collating photos in album the digital way. It would really be great to use the latest technology in developing memory banks for our photos.

  38. Maureen@ADebtFreeStressFreeLife

    Sounds like a great way to make a photo book full of your favorite photos. I like the idea a lot.

  39. Sonia

    I reviewed Pop Book too and really loved them x

  40. Kayleigh-Anne Watkins

    Those were the days lol, I remember waiting for photos to be developed, and my mum pan every time we took a photo in case we opened the camera back and ruined the film, I used to love looking at the negative strips xxx

  41. Keri Jones

    This is lovely- your pets are so cute! xx

  42. ana

    Photobooks are perfect for capturing those special memories it is like creating a key to the past, I will have to check pop-book out.

  43. amy fidler

    what such a great idea x

  44. Tiffany

    This is perfect! I always have good intentions of making a photo book, but then I take so many pictures and it takes me MONTHS to decide on the best ones and by then I forgot all the things I wanted to put in the book in the first place!

  45. Charlotte Braithwaite

    Awwww my goodness!
    Sarah you’re always posing such cute stuff especially for pets <3
    Thanks for sharing hun
    Charlotte x

  46. Jenni - Odd Socks and Lollipops

    These looks great I am going to have to have a look at these. I just know that they are going to make perfect gifts for Christmas

  47. Mandi

    My husband and I were only saying the other day that it would be nice to have some actual photos instead of looking at them on the pc, this sounds like a great idea.

  48. Nicole

    I’m pretty excited to try this. I think my husband was telling me about this.

  49. Katie

    What a great idea, and so reasonably priced! You’re so right about the folders full of photos that no one will see, it’s such a shame and so easy to loose them if something happens to your computer, disk or memory stick!

  50. mburbage

    That so cute! I love photo books, they make some wonderful gifts for people

  51. Chantal

    Wow I love this idea! I think the gloss finish looks great! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    The title of this post didn’t lie – this is so sweet!!!

  53. tracey bowden

    I love this. I always say I am going to do one of these for my family and never do but doing it from the app with facebook and instagram pics would be so much easier!

  54. Margarita Ibbott

    These are so cute! I can definitely see myself giving these out as gifts.

  55. Rosey

    I like this, it is a sweet looking photo book. These are always great keepsakes.

  56. Lisa Rios

    As a child & a teen, I remember taking pictures on the normal cameras & then printing up which is almost like a big task. And I agree digital photography has almost changed everything about it for sure. The photobook is a cute idea & would make a wonderful gift to share memories with loved ones.

  57. Jen

    We love pop books, they are a really great afforable book and perfect for teens and tweens

  58. Zara Lipstixx

    Aw I love photo books. I’m gonna have to get this and make a little book of Falcor from pup days until now! x
