MyPublisher (my favorite photo book company) just launched a new Photobook design iPad App called KeepShot (YAY!!) and I am happy to report it is awesome – the templates are great, it's very easy to use, and you have plenty of options to customize your book. It's everything I love about MyPublisher with the convenience of an App.
The first 10,000 to create a book will get a FREE Photobook. They launched the App with a very cool promotion: the first 10,000 to create a photo book using the KeepShot app will get it for FREE. (Scroll down for the details and link to the App.) I didn't want to risk NOT being one of the first 10,000 to get a free book, so I spent my lunchtime making the book. It really was that easy and I am so excited about it, I wanted to share with all of my lovely readers!
KeepShot offers 12 different stylish templates that are customizable with text, images, photos, frames and backgrounds.
Choosing the photos.
Choosing the photos is simple – you can choose from your iPad, Facebook, Flickr, and Instagram. I use Photostream (the magical feature in iPhoto or Aperture that instantly shares and syncs your most recent photos from your Mac, iPad and iPhone) so I created my book from photos from the past few weekends of activities that are on my iPad. Yes, I take a ridiculous amount of photos.
PHOTO ORGANIZATION TIPS: Now that this App is available, I will probably organize my photos a little differently so my favorites are in one spot on Photostream or Flickr, ready to make the book. You could just create a Flickr set or a Photostream folder as you add pictures, and when you're ready to make a book, they will be in one place!
Designing the pages.
The app is really easy to use, allowing you to change the layout of each page. You can customize as much or as little as you'd like. It's all very simple and intuitive – you can edit the photos, crop, zoom, add a frame, and add little details called stickers to create each page. I would just like to note that none of the options are cheesy – everything is very clean and stylish. I love all of the options. Normally I make a very basic photo book without frills but I decided to have a little fun today, and used a lot of the embellishments.
Here's the deal.
As a special launch promotion, MyPublisher is giving the first 10,000 people to submit an order on KeepShot a free 8.75″ x 11.25″ photo book. (You just have to pay $10.99 for shipping.) Go! Hurry! Download the KeepShot App in the iTunes store!
PS – if you already have a MyPublisher account, you'll need to create a new KeepShot account.
