Step 1: When you're viewing your timeline, click on the 'Photobooks' icon in the top right corner. ( circled in red below ) :

Step 2: Please select your book format Square or A4

Step 3: Select the child(ren) you wish to include in your Photobook 

Step 4: Select a date range for the photos you want to use for your book.

Step 5: Our book builder creates a book initially with the photos with the most likes and best resolution. It's easy to change the images. Just click the one you want to change.

Step 6: Click on the bin icon ( circled in red below ) and it will ask if you are sure if you want to remove. Click yes or cancel. 

Step 7: When the image is deleted you can drag an image from the left side to add.

Step 8:  You can change layout of a page by clicking the middle icon on the left side next to the photo field.

Step 9: Tap the top icon on the left side to bring back the photo field. Drag and drop your photos to your new layout.

Step 11: Click on the order button in the top right corner. It might say that some images have lower quality. They are most likely taken on a mobile phone and we recommend double checking so that they are not too pixelated. If they are okay you can just to ahead and click ''Order my book, anyway''.
