Flickr now lets users print photo books from their collections

Flickr unveils new printed photo book feature that automatically formats your images for optimal printing in a bound photo book (NASDAQ:YHOO)

Film photography all but died with the invention of digital cameras, and likewise so did the photo album when online photo galleries became mainstream. Until recently, having a photo book printed from digital images was quite expensive, but now the price seems to have leveled off and the books are more affordable than ever.

Hoping to get more printed photos onto your coffee table, Flickr has just unveiled a new printed photo book product that users can purchase starting at $35 for a 20-page book. Flickr provides a new "intelligent" creation tool that automatically crops, adjust, and prepares user selected images for printing in the book, and up to 240 pages are possible. Each page is crafted from high-quality white photo paper and finished with a lustre coating. Books are bound in a glossy hardcover and come with a dust jacket.

 

Back in my days as a professional photographer, getting a similar sized book required hours of photo preparation, and laying out everything in PDF format before shipping off to the printer. It appears that Flickr has greatly simplified this process, and made it much cheaper as well.
