So far, people love their Instagram books, so much so that we’re getting questions about how they can take their books to the next level. In our last Instagram post, we looked at five ways to play with formatting. Today we’ll look at four ways to help edit your Image Flow, get old Instagram photos, and get rid of photos you don’t want (or have already used).
The magic behind our Instagram books is our online bookmaking tool, Blurb Bookify™. However, if you’re making an Instagram book you simply know our “Get Started” button which connects your Instagram account to Blurb. All of the following tips start with clicking the “Edit book” button after your photos are imported. You’ll find it right in front of the “Ready to Order” button in Bookify. ↓
1) How to get older Instagram photos into your Instagram book:
Okay, so you may have noticed that, by default, Blurb pulls in your 60 most recent photos. That’s fine for many, but you may want to reach further back into your archives. Fair enough. Click the “Get Photos” button at the top and select Instagram. Since you’re already logged in, you’ll see where you can select your entire Instagram feed. Then simply import the ones you want (a white border means they’re unselected, an orange border means they’re selected). ↓
2) How to add photos from other sources
Now that you know the drill on importing extra photos from Instagram, you can import photos from a variety of sources including Flickr, SmugMug, Zenfolio, Picasa, and your own computer. Just choose the appropriate button.
3) How to put together a book with multiple accounts
If you have a couple of different Instagram accounts, you can import both accounts into a single book. You’ll do just what you did above, only this time you’ll change your “logged in” account by clicking “Change” next to your username. Select the photos you want from your second account, and you’ll see them in your Image Flow. ↓
4) How to take older Instagram photos out of the flow
If you’ve already made one Instagram book and you want to remove previously used photos from your new book, just go to “Arrange Pages” (you’ll find it on the main edit screen right below the book). Select individual pages and click the “X” to delete the page. Keep clicking pages and the “X” until you have the first photo you want. ↓
That wraps it up for this Instagram book session. We hope we’ve answered some of your questions. If we’ve left anything unanswered, please post in the comments section, or better yet, get in touch with our Customer Support team.
Happy Instagram bookmaking.
