Oh, photo albums. They are the greatest link to our past and the most annoying part of our present. Even though you probably have 8,785 pictures of your kids on your phone — from the past year, that is — you've probably only printed one or two of them. If you choose to create an album online (as opposed to one with actual printed pictures... remember those?), it isn't always easy finding the time or motivation to actually do it. Because let's be honest, sorting through the pictures to find ones that are actually album-worthy is a hefty task.

Since you probably only post the best of the best photos to Instagram, wouldn't it be great if you could easily create a photo album full of the Insta pics of your choosing? Well, it's possible with Chatbooks.
To create a photo book, simply log into your Instagram or Facebook account, or give the app access to your camera roll, and choose the photos you want included.
The custom photo books start at $12 for a book with 60 photos (one photo per page). For an extra $5, you can get a hardcover book. And for an extra $2, you can customize the cover.
Or you can subscribe to a photo book series, which starts at $8 per book. Once your social media account or camera roll gets close to 60 new photos, you'll get a reminder email to choose the photos you want included (it's $1 more for every six extra pages).
There's also the option to print square pictures straight from Instagram. Choose your favorite photos, and they'll be printed on thick, luxury cardstock. The price ranges from $8 to $24 for every 24 photos.
Or, of course, you can just connect your accounts and let Chatbooks completely take care of creating the books for you.
