I suggest you ...

Please make your books more customisable, with the option to include all content!

Hi!
I'm a big fan of the look and functionality of the LifeCake website and app! Ultimately, I'm looking to print content in a book though, so I'm still waiting on some features and hope you'll consider adding them in the future. Specifically, it'd be great if all content, including stories and comments, could be included and there was an option for multiple pictures/stories per page.
I recently stumbled across My Social Book and would love being able to print books of a similar look from LifeCake. Do you think your books will deliver similar features in the future?

    Hi, Johana! So sorry for the delay in responding, but we’re glad you’re enjoying the app and Website.

    We do want to provide more options in our photobooks in the future for sure. Right now we’re focusing on customer requests within our app and Website, though, so we’re unsure when we will have this. But we will update this as soon as we do.

    And in the meantime, just so you know: we have an option on our Website in Settings to ‘Download all’. With this you can download all your content – in full quality and in monthly, organised folders – so you can still print books on other sites in the time being.

    Thanks for your patience and your feedback!

        Hello Lifecake,
        I would be very keen to hear where you are with this. Right now I am copying and pasting into a different Photobook tools. Costing me quite a lot of time and Lifecake is missing revenue!
        Thanks!

        You should be able to print all photos WITH comments in one photobook. That was why I invested time every single day uploading and writing using this app. I even checked with your team before using it that I would be able to print all photos in a book and I was told I would be able to to. I would have used another app if I knew I was being lied to! I'm furious and all your rep tells me is there is nothing he can do. Of course there is - it's not beyond science or the laws of physics - if you cared about your customers you would show good will and just add the photos to a book or at the very least print them all and send them in date order so I haven't completely wasted my time!

        Would love to be able to add text, baby book pages, and stories. Also would love the option for more than 1 photo per page.

        I assumed I could print the entire content in a book! That's why I signed up... is this not possible?

      • Kerrie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add more options to the photo book, would like to add more than one image per page. Like everyone else, I love this app but would really like to create photo books.

      • Cat commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please allow me to put several less important photos on a page. I'd still like to see them, but I don't need a whole page dedicated to them.

      • Lara Wickes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just another request for stories, more text, more layout options for the printed book. This is supposed to be my daughter's baby book, and while it is nice to have the online content, I would really like a printed keepsake. Cute backgrounds, milestone pages, and showing people's comments would be nice options too. Other apps (like Tweekaboo) already have this happening! Please catch up, as Lifecake is my favorite for daily use.

      • Makell Southworth commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd like to add to this request for more customized books. Specifically I want to make a book strictly using one of my tags, but there's not an option for this right now.

      • Leslie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Was super happy to have the option to make a photo book through Lifecake but it was so slow to make any photo changes - I got frustrated and started looking into other websites. It would be nice to have different layout options as well (like multiple photos per page).

      • Yahoo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I absolutely agree with the reasons and ideas surrounding the absolute need for a real and manageable photo book option. Maybe pair your site with Walgreens or shutterfly? Ideal would be to offer option for number of photos per page and allow those to include the date and comments of each as desired.

        I sat down at the computer tonight with the intention of making several books for myself and my family members as holiday gifts, as we all use and love Lifecake and my favorite photos are stored here. After just ten minutes of messing around with your photo book program I am so frustrated by the lack of options and - even more - the difficulty of simply selecting a photo and placing it on a page, that I quit. It would take me hours to create just one book the way I want to because it insists on pre-selecting photos for me and I have to manually delete each one I wish to replace. I really look forward to any improvements you might be able to make in this arena.

        Your promotional email sent in December, 2015 depicts a little girl looking through a photo book with multiple images per page... this is FALSE ADVERTISING! Please allow us to choose layouts with multiple photos per page.

      • Louise commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree with all the comments below. I'd liketo have the option of adding multiple images on one page and edit easily as with many other photo book creation sites. When Lifecake automatically selects photos for the book I would like it to also add the comments/storys that accompany that image and then give you the option to delete them if you wish.
        It looks as if this topic has been under review since 2013 - I really hope that 2 years on and since being bought by Cannon that this can be really looked at and a decision made asap as I love the online ability but very disappointed that I can't bring my childrens story to life in the hard book via this site.

      • brittane2004 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree. I would love to be able to put stories I write in the books we print. Is there a way to make this happen?

      • Sara Williams commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have enjoyed documenting some milestones and stories each month. I'd love to be able to include them in the printed book!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Any idea if you will make changes especially multiple pics on one page. I would really like a photo book but will probably go to a competitor if this isn't available soon

      • Amanda commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It is so hard to pick a favorite picture from a certain day so it would be nice to be able to put more than one per page.

      • dfosborn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree completely with this. And it's not just stories that are important but descriptions and comments that go with a photo.
        This seems to have been planned for a while. Any idea when it will be included?

      • patti commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree the entire reason it makes sense and is awesome is because of the stories and I don't want the photo book with out the stories. That would just be incomplete.
