If you are a travel enthusiast, the best way to preserve the memories of the best moments, odd experiences and epic things is to create a travel photo book.
From my personal experience, I can tell you that every traveller loves to click and capture images during any trip. These days, the tech-savvy shutterbugs and travellers post their travel photos on Instagram.. As it takes time to load the photos, you may run out of patience to view all of these, especially if you have a large collection. That is why, I decided to create my own travel photo book.

Let us now take a quick look at the steps:
Select Travel Photo Book Option
Open Mixbook.com and create a free account on it. Choose Photo Books>Travel Photo Books. Hover the mouse over other tabs to look at different options.
Select Blank Book or Your Own Template
The company has nice pre-designed photobook layouts. You can choose and use any of these. Alternatively, you can start working from the scratch by choosing a blank project. Whatever option you choose, the next steps are important. However, if you select a template, you need not to do formatting.
Explore Platform Studio
After you are done with selecting the project, it will land up in a new window that is Platform Studio of Mixbook. With the page navigation options around, the project will be fitted in the middle whereas important tools for text addition, theme changing, page addition/deletion etc are anchored above.
At the top, there are tools to choose layouts and backgrounds, add photos and even stickers.
Upload Travel Photos
Mixbook allows the users to upload photos from Instagram automatically. You do not need to waste your time and test your patience to voyage through thousands of images and edit them. Simply choose your favourite photos from your IG feed.
There are also options to upload photos from Google drive, Facebook and even your smartphone.
Add Photos & Design
If you have started with a blank project, choose the layout and background before adding photos. In case, if you have selected a template, layout is already done!
To write on the pages, click on the “Add Text” box. If there is no text over the photos, choose the “Stickers” tab and click the square shape to use it as a background.
Preview the photobook you have created. Are you happy with its design? If yes, just save and send it. Believe me, you will have it in your hands within the blink of an eye.
