I’ve found myself in a situation where I’m nothing but completely loaded with tons of old photos. You know, those pictures that have always been there since your early childhood are simply too precious to dispose of. Fortunately, there are platforms for compiling your old pictures and arranging them in a nice album or photo book. There is a ton of handy websites to make an online photobook. Varying in features and templates, they offer great relief for people like me. So, here are some of them that I find rather interesting.



Canva is one of the most versatile platforms for creating designs, logos, and photobooks. Here, you can choose from a variety of already-made templates to fit in your old pictures, or you can create some of your own. Getting used to Canva may take some time, but the benefits are impressively amusing.

Set up an account and receive access to hundreds if not thousands of options to design a free online photobook. Turn it into a mosaic of family get-togethers or make an old-school album to gift it to your mom on Mother’s Day. It’s easy, creative, and fun to work there. 


Are you thinking of a more professional platform for your book? Then Shutterfly can just do the trick. It’s used by many wedding and event photographers to create a memorable compilation of pictures. The platform specializes in photobook-making, so it has a vast range of functions and features to make one as visual as possible.

Again, you can pick a template that catches your eye the most and simply insert the photos. Or you may well come up with something fresh and new that relates to your personalized album. Whatever you choose, don’t forget about the in-built AI tutorial to help you out.


I like how inclusive and user-friendly MyAlbum is. Here, you don’t have to be a professional designer or even be able to make heads or tails of visuals. You simply need to upload your photos to the cloud, add them to your on-platform library, and start experimenting.

To create a photobook online with the platform, you will need shy of 30 minutes, maybe 40, if you’re too creative. The album-maker offers you a whole set of events, like weddings, birthdays, trips, etc. to suit your occasion. There, you can find lots of nice features, like fonts, symbols, and slogans to add to your book. 

Adobe Spark

If you don’t know how to design a photobook in Photoshop, but you do want to, then here’s an option. Though the platform is mainly developed for professional designers and photographers, it’s quite simple to use.

Based on the company’s profound design experience, it has created a great, self-guided photobook-maker.

You can choose a template, create one from scratch, or mingle two of them together. Add various effects, pictograms, and color variations to make it a real eye-catcher. Also, don’t forget to save a digital copy for yourself or your loved ones. 

Not All Memories Belong in Your Mind

As you can see, making a nice photo book is easier than ever. Find a platform that suits you and start creating. As long as it’s fun, it’s right. So, what apps and platforms have you been using for photo books? Are they suitable for old film photos? Let me know your top picks below!
