That’s right! Now you can create a Bonte Photo Book and send it to family and friends. Better yet, they can either order the photo book directly OR they can make changes and edit it, add more photos, change some text and then order it.

Here is the new screen you’ll see when you’re creating a Bonte Book. Notice all of the icons are at the top now and they are all labeled, so you know exactly what they are (great, huh!) The share feature is the third from the right – a little mail icon (made extra noticeable by the lovely arrow icon I added!) Once you want to share your book (beginning, middle or when it’s completely done – it’s up to you!) just click on the share icon and you’ll see this:

Just like an email! Simple and easy to use – you can change the subject and body of the email and even send it to multiple people, just separate each email with a semicolon and send away!

Here are some ideas on how to use the share feature:

  • Family Reunions – Start a book and share it with family members so they can add photos, keep sharing until everyone has edited the book and then let everyone order one on their own. Makes shipping much easier.
  • Baby Books – Create a photo book for each month of your baby’s life. Share it with both sets of grandparents quickly and easily. They will LOVE you for it!
  • Start a “Photo Pal” project – Find a friend (perhaps far away) and pick a theme like 11:00am or green and take a photo for that theme everyday. You take a photo, s/he takes a photo. Create a Bonte photo book and upload your photo, share the book,  and each day you see the side-by-side spread. At the end of the month you’ll have a complete book.

Any other ideas on how you want to share your Bonte photo books? Let us know!

There are probably hundreds, no thousands (or more!) of unique ideas for Bonte photo books. Of course there are the standards: vacations books, weddings books, kids books, pet books which are all great (and we love getting orders for them!) but ever consider doing something a little different? Sometimes it takes a photo project to really get you motivated to start taking more photos (everyday!) and actually make a photo book (it’s not hard!) With that in mind, we gathered a few interesting photo projects below. It’s amazing how they capture everyday life and make it more fun.

Just for kids!

Watch your kids grow! Use a chair and take a photo every month to see how big they are getting! (This could also work for pets!) This artsy mom even added the corresponding month number to each outfit! Such a cute idea. LOVE it!

Strangers!

Heard of the 100 Strangers Project? www.100strangers.com This project will get you out of your comfort zone and talking to people. The goal is to approach people and take their photo. There are many variations and you can really make it unique by asking them a fun question, making them make a funny face,etc. For an example check out this set on Flickr – some very interesting people!

Pencil vs. Camera!

If you can draw, this one might be fun for you to try. Ben Heine uses his sketches in photos to bring them to life. Check out more here!

Project 52:

This project is more manageable than it’s older brother Project 365. Instead of taking a photo everyday, you take a photo for every week of the year. By the end you have a nice history of your life in 52 photos that would become an impressive photo book. (ps. This type of book would be perfect using Bonte’s snapshot/polaroid theme!) The best part is you can pick a fun topic and base your photos around that, like the example below – 52 weeks for dogs!
