Do you have tons of photos of your kids on your smart phone? Are you like most of us who have no idea what to do with those photos? Well, this article is for you.
Since my daughter was born, I’ve been creating photo books of all of my day-to-day photos from my iPhone. Not only does this document her life in a fun way, it keeps my phone memory lower because I’m able to delete the photos after putting them into a photo book. I create a photo book about every six months and try to jam as many photos as I can into them. I also create photo books for each family vacation.
The easiest place for me to do a smart phone “photo dump” is Target. Since I’m at Target at least once a week anyways, it’s easy for me to use the Kodak Kiosk Connect App on my iPhone to turn my photos into a photo book. I can have the photo books made right in the store or I can have them shipped directly to my home. Another easy way to create a photo book in-store is to connect the kiosk to your Facebook account, USB card, Instagram, etc. and select photos from there.
I typically create the 8×8 photo book to keep them all looking similar on my bookshelf but there have been times that I’ve created larger or smaller sizes. I recently went down to Target to create a smaller 5×7 vacation photo book from our Mexican cruise in March and didn’t have a great experience (which is rare). I already had the photos in a folder on my Facebook account so I just connected the computer to my Facebook account and grabbed my photos from there.
I ordered the 5×7 photo book and my receipt said it would be ready within one hour. Talk about fast! Unfortunately, something went wrong in the creation process and my photobook was never bound. Instead, I received an envelope of photo book pages. The staff was extremely apologetic and had no idea why their team member didn’t bind my photo book. They graciously let me keep my photos for free and asked me to re-order the photo book. I was in a rush that day so I ended up just taking my photos home and didn’t ever finish my vacation book. This was definitely a bummer and something I had never experience with making photo books through the Kodak Kiosk at Target. Perhaps next time I will choose a different Target photo center or try the CVS kiosks.
