Google Has a Genius New Way to Deal with Your Old Photos
Despite our collective penchant for scrolling through Instagram, there's just something inherently special about a bound photo album. But the time spent composing one—uploading, arranging, rearranging, and captioning—is usually more stressful than it's worth. Always in the business of making things easier, Google is here to lend a helping hand with Photo Books, a new product offering that condenses the photo album-making process to a few quick steps that can be done on your phone.
The way it works is simple: Download the Google Photos app and select the photos you'd like to include in your album, straight from the camera roll. (If there are multiples, Google's savvy recognition technology will comb through and eliminate any duplicates.) Then, with the swift click of a button, it will generate the layout of your book. To reorder images, simply click on one and drag it to a different spot. Next, place your order and check out, without ever leaving the app. Easy peasy.
