When you think of summer, you might think of funnel cakes at the fair, lazy beach days, music festivals, or 4th of July fireworks. However you experienced summer, there’s a good chance that the pictures that you took are either still on your phone or in a disarray in that clunky “Mobile Uploads” Facebook folder. If you want a better way to save, display and share your summer memories, try one of these cool websites and apps.
Whether you want printed photos, gifts or books, Snapfish is one of our top picks. When creating a custom photo book, you can pick from pre-made themes including “Seaside,” “Roadtrip,” “Summer Party,” and more. Add embellishments, like a traditional scrapbook, along with custom text and page layouts. Simply put your book together with pictures from your computer, Facbeook, or Flickr and it’ll be shipped to you in a few days.
Many people know Shutterfly for providing high-quality photo books, but you might not know about their powerful mobile and tablet apps. Right from your phone using your photo album, Facebook, and Instagram you can order prints, canvas prints, and gifts including mugs and phone cases. The editing software works like many of your favorite apps, with the ability to create collages and add filters to your order.
If you want to share photos in a way a bit more meaningful way, turn to snail mail. Of course, there’s no reason you can’t have technology on your side, too. For only $.99, you can choose a photo from Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, or other cloud services and add a special message. In 2-5 days, the receiver will get the high-quality, 300 dpi memento. The best part is that the photo pops out of the postcard as a standalone print that can be kept! You can even schedule cards now to send later so you never forget a birthday, holiday, or space out your “just because” postcards.
