  1. 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!

  2. Include adding the dates of the photos in the new photobook

    ''the previous photobook let you display the dates and captions from your pictures in the book, in fact it did this automatically. I'd been through captioning pictures, but the new book doesn't show any of these, or the dates which is one of the key reasons why i'd use lifecake for a photobook over another provider. ''

  3. Add multiple shipping addresses for photo books.

    There is only one option for billing / shipping so I had to order a photo book to my house which I will then have to ship to someone else. This doesn't make sense, and is too time consuming. Plus with the holiday's it may not make it in time. what if I wanted to order the same book to several people?... would be nice to add this feature. It's pretty basic after all.

  6. A print all option! By all/month or and year

    I’d really like the option to print all my child’s photos. Not just recent or highlights or individual ones.
    That would save me so much time when making up her photo albums for her! I save her best ones to Lifecake so it’s organised for me already!

  7. Your new photobooks

    Hello,

    I just wanted to give you feedback on your new photobooks. We have ordered 4 in the past and have had no issues with the way of doing it but I have just ordered another one and I don't like the new software for creating them. We order them for an elderly relative and basically want a book version of lifecake with dates and photo titles included but the new software doesn't pull the dates over and you can't include dates and titles on ALL of the layouts of the pages. We much prefer the way it was before!…

  9. Increase PhotoBook Options

    I recently created a photobook for my daughters first year through Lifecake. I love the fact that you can do this straight through the site as it makes finding the right photos in the right order nice and easy.

    Sadly I did find the customisation extremely restricted (layout, text, backgrounds etc) and the final book was leaning on the expensive side compared to other sites such as Photobox etc.

  11. Able to order photobooks from a touchscreen device

    ''Trying to create a photobook. I understand that I cannot do it from my Iphone but can I use a laptop? I do not own a desk top computer...I really like Lifecake but the poor photobook options is one of the reasons I may not continue to use it :( Help!''

  13. An automatic populate for the hardcopy book that can be purchased.

    Each page is essentially a screen grab of how each date is already presented on this great app. Setting the start and end dates defining the size of the book. A beautiful, easy to create gift for non tech savy family...in my case great/grandparents. Fantastic work... our whole family loves this facility. Well Done!

  14. Exclude low-resolution images from photo book layouts

    If you add photos from e.g. Instagram, the photos are too small to print well in a photo book, so if you auto-populate (e.g. my child's first year) it puts all the images in but with warnings about print quality - you then have to remove each one rather laboriously. It might make sense to exclude any images which are under the required print resolution, or at least allow filtering by size in the drop down underneath the drawer.

    Thanks, Meg! We usually exclude lower-resolution photos by default, but do you have a lot more than 100? If it’s still showing lower resolution ones even when you have higher quality photos to choose from, then we might need to investigate to make sure we don’t have a bug.

    Please let us know if you get a chance. Thanks so much!

  15. Push alert/ prompts to add new content

    Can lifeCake add a way to send 2-5 questions a week that can be answered by parents as new content? Things like “what was something special that happened this week?” Or “what’s something funny that happened to Child-A” or “how did you learn you were pregnant?” — basically story prompts. Does this exist already and I’m missing it?

    Also... is there a way to add imagery to story adds?

  17. Automatically choose appropriate layout for photos in the book

    ''Photos pulled in to the photo book in the same format that they were taken in (i.e. landscape photos appearing landscape and portrait photos as portrait rather than strange cropping happening to portrait photos to fit them into a landscape shaped hole);''

  18. Make stories downloadable and printable

    I’d love to be able to print my story in the photo album and at least be able to download it along with the date of the story I have things stored in Lifecake like first words, first steps, funny stories. I want those in hard copy.

  20. Automatically add photos when layout is changed

    ''The book seems to make all the pages one shot. Then if I choose 4 per page it wants me to drag the pictures manually but I have thousands so I don't want to do this.

    Any suggestions? Can you make it work?''
