Creating your own photo book
The main reason why I didn't print any of my photos yet is that it is cumbersome to find or create something that just feels right. Well that was the excuse until I got introduced to Mosaic.
What is Mosaic?
Mosaic is a nicely designed iPhone application that makes it easy for you to create a photo book of 20 pictures that you select by using the application. It's very fast and easy.
How is it done?
Launch the app and create a new Mosaic. Choose 20 photos from one of the albums on screen. Once you have selected 20 photos, click done and you'll get a screen where you can create the special Mosaic cover. Either you go with what is presented by default, or you shuffle to get the result that you are after. You can swipe the book to preview all the pages you've created. All what is left now is filling in your information and press place order. The app is available for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Fast & beautiful
After 4 days you receive your little photo book. The book measures 7 x 7 inch or 17,78 x 17,78 cm — the perfect size in my humble opinion. When it arrives you'll be very impressed with its unique and stunning hard cover design consisting of your own pictures. You'll want to touch it and see what's inside immediately. The paper & print has real quality even from all the Instagram photos that I selected to get printed. The paper is silky smooth like promised, and the colors were just as I would expected them. Must be some great engineering in the background to get this all right.
Mosaics are a flat price of $20 + tax & shipping; a fair and honest price for this kind of quality. I was lucky to get to preview the service because it's not available in Europe yet. They're working hard on shipping outside of the U.S. Once they do I'm already eagerly waiting to order another book of the pictures I've snapped during my rides. I've reserved shelf space to get a few of these little photo books :)
