How to Create Interactive Photo Album Online?

There are many ways to create an online photo album, but the best way is to create it in a flipbook form. Below, we will explain why!


What are Flipbooks?

Flipbooks are a type of presentation of a pdf document. You can easily convert any photo album in PDF format and display it as a beautiful flipbook with a realistic page-turning effect. Publuu offers you an opportunity to upload your photo albums online and convert them into interactive virtual photo albums to be accessible by your friends and family world-wide.

How to create photo albums in PDF format?

If you already own a collection of images, it’s really easy to convert them into PDF. You can use professional page designing software like Adobe InDesign or Microsoft Publisher, but even a casual user can convert their photos into a beautiful album using MS Word. You can design your photo album yourself, just embedding your pictures on pages of a text document, then saving the existing files as PDF. If you have any issues with that, you can find guides and support in our Knowledge Base.

If you have a virtual PDF printer, you can convert your photos to PDF files by simply saving them as PDF. It only takes a couple of clicks to present others a beautiful photo album – and if it doesn’t look beautiful you can change that by uploading it to Publuu.

Publuu can make any photo album beautiful. When you upload the PDF file, Publuu will add a great page-turning effect that will make your online photo books resemble actual books and feel as if you’re holding your memories in your hand. You can customize your own background and switch on sound effects if you choose so.



Or turn it off, if you don’t want to get distracted, like below:
